ABOUT LONE STAR LETTER WRITERS
Correspondence was organized in collaboration with Lone Star Letter Writers, a group of letter-writers who advocate for keeping the art of mailed correspondence alive and well. Lone Star Letter Writers was started in 2018 by Fort Worth native Sissy Cross with the intention to build community and make room for more mail. The group meets once a month in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and all events are free and open to anyone curious or inspired to create. They embrace all aspects of the art of letter writing, from the message of the letter itself to the inspired ways that the envelope and correspondence can become works of art in themselves. In curating this exhibit, Lone Star Letter Writers hopes to display the infinitely creative ways that art and letters can be created and sent across the country for only fifty-five cents.
