A Dear John letter is a letter written to a man by his romantic partner to inform him their relationship is over. However, John is often left without the opportunity to respond; words remain unsaid. In this workshop, we will take time to write those words that are still sitting inside us and let them be responded to by others in the group. Letters and stories get entangled anonymously, bringing the words from the past into present day connections. You become the writer and the written.
