“The Letter Writing Project” Examines Healing Emotional Trauma through Writing

Free Literary Event at Recologie on May 30th

Sponsored by the New Rochelle Council on the Arts

     Words left unsaid, praise never spoken, love never expressed – these form the basis of Wendy Wolff’s Letter Writing Project, a writing exercise designed to relieve feelings of loss, regret, anger and remorse. Wolff, a writer with a background in advocacy, will share her story and her technique at an interactive book singing and sharing experience on Friday, May 30th at 7 pm at Recologie (49 Lawton Street, New Rochelle; 914-278-9350). The free event is sponsored by the New Rochelle Council on the Arts; light refreshments will be served, and a special prix fixe dinner will be available for $15. For more information consult the Recologie website at www.recologie.com or email info@recologie.com.

   On her website www.wendywolff.com Wolff writes that “The Letter Writing Project began as a tribute to my sister on the day that the world was remembering her and has morphed into an activity to say the things that you need to say before it is too late….The Letter Writing Project helped me to peel back the layers and figure out what is important in my life.” She reveals that  “My sister died with me a bit out of touch with her. I can never take that back…That helpless feeling of regret will always loom over me regarding my sister, but The Letter Writing Project has prevented that from ever happening again. The letters in this book are professions of love, apologies, retribution, anger, grief, remorse, joy, fulfillment, gratitude, spirituality and hatred. They have created a space for me to further clarify exactly who I am in this world. What an enormous gift.”

      The Letter Writing Project event is part of The New Rochelle Council on the Arts literary series. NRCA was created by the New Rochelle City Council in 1975 to stimulate and encourage the study and presentation of the performing and fine arts; for 35 years NRCA has worked to fulfill that mission by sponsoring art exhibitions, theatrical productions, dance recitals, film screenings, lectures, and concert series. In addition, NRCA has facilitated collaboration among arts organizations, sponsored public art, and helped build relationships between the arts, the business community and city government. New Rochelle Council on the Arts programs are made possible through support from the Arts Alive program of Arts Westchester, with funding from the Decentralization Program of the New York State Council on the Arts.
