We've found some articles to get you started writing letters with some practical tips to follow.

This article by Jon McGregor in The Guardian from a couple of years ago is a thoughtful exploration of letter writing and a project he started with a group of students. It's not surprising he loves letter writing because he is a writer. But for many of us, starting and know what to say and how to say it well can be baffling. To get some of his students who were struggling with the blank page, he started a project which invites readers to write in, and the results were engrossing.
