"Writing is different from texting”, several participants have said after they’ve written the letters. I asked people in London if they can write a letter to someone they’ve been thinking of since the COVID-19 lockdown began this Spring (2020). Since the lockdown started, I hear that people began to text more, but phone calls to each other are becoming even more common. As much as we are scared of what the virus will bring, we are craving for connection and missing someone more than ever. Letters are one of the most intimate forms of communications in this hyper connected world.
