The Surat Warrior Writers recently held our second writing retreat in Khanom, Thailand. It was held over Valentine's Day and we decided to call it "Love In Letters." The theme of our retreat was falling in love with your craft, in our case, writing, and many of the activities revolved around letter writing. Below is a list of open-ended letter-writing prompts that we used for a larger movement and writing activity.
For the movement portion of the activity, we went on a 20-minute walk and recorded or took pictures of three things that stuck out to us for any reason as we wandered. We then incorporated those three things into a letter after pulling one of the following prompts. (For an example from Warrior Christine, click here.)
Letter from your writing to you
Bad love letters
Funny Hallmark love letters
Take a love letter and keep rewriting it with different tones
“Poison Pen” Letter (hate mail, usually sent anonymously)
Letter to yourself 10 years ago/15 years ago/20 years ago
Letter to your body
Letter to your passion
Letter to Society
Letter to a parent or a parental figure
Letter of appreciation to your body
Letter to an enemy
