In 1825, The United States Postal Service started up a strange little place where undeliverable mail went to die. This place came to be known as the Dead Letter Office, and operates to this day. Tens of millions of letters and packages appear there each year, are sifted through, and destroyed.
What does this have to do with you? We’ll tell you.
For this month’s prompt, we’d like from you a letter, written to a person, object, or entity unlikely to send you a response. Examples? McSweeney’s Internet Tendency does this sort of thing all the time. Have something to say to Dostoyevsky? An ancestor? The Color Blue? (e)Mail it to us. We’ll publish.
To light a fire under your ass, we’ll set a deadline: The Write Club Dead Letter Office closes for Business on JUNE 1, 2012.
