The Pen Pal Project is a collaboration between two writers: Kate Hilton and Reva Seth. Kate and Reva met in 2013 and immediately launched into a lively discussion about motherhood, work, sex, marriage, midlife, fear, courage and failure. And that was just the first conversation.
In January 2015, we decided to continue our ongoing exchange in writing. Avid letter-writers as children, we loved the idea of having a pen pal in adulthood, particularly during a time of life transition. We decided to post our letters online, so that you could follow our conversation. And if you’re inspired to get a pen pal of your own? Even better.
