Every week we feature one of our writers and ask them why they write letters.
This week's writer, Melissa, says:
I write because I like it.
I write so that I can hear myself think.
I write to make sense of the world.
I write to heal.
I write to remember, to honour, to slow down.
These are all reasons why I start writing.
I write because writing is not only a part of who I am, but also a way of how I am.
