Up for Discussion: Writing Letters

Marla Elsea
Jan 25, 2022

As we prepare the summer edition of the Phi Kappa Phi Forum, we're asking members to contribute their ideas to the theme. We enjoy reading your responses and will be choosing a sample to share in the magazine.

For 2022, each edition of Forum will center on a different theme beginning with reading, then continuing with writing, conversation and the art of speech. We welcome your feedback.

Although few people send handwritten letters anymore, they can still have a big impact. What's the most meaningful personal letter you ever received? For Forum editor Danny Heitman, it was a small note of encouragement when starting college.

Share your response to our question by replying to this discussion in our online member community Link. Responses of no more than three or four sentences are recommended, and we look forward to reading your contributions. We'll publish some of your answers in the "Up for Discussion" feature of our summer magazine.

The community is available to active members only, and you will be required to log in with your Phi Kappa Phi credentials. For login assistance, email
