Love Letters On Demand




Save to:


Have you ever ached for a loved one but lacked the ability to convey it? Had them rock your terra firma but didn’t know how to tell them? Help is on the way!


Santa Cruz Writes, a grass roots non-profit, is holding a pre-launch event for its local literary online magazine, phren-Z. The event is co-sponsored by The Museum of Art & History, Bookshop Santa Cruz, and Felix Kulpa Gallery.


“Love Letters” will take place Saturday, Feb. 11 in three Santa Cruz locations: the MAH, Bookshop Santa Cruz, and Felix Kulpa Gallery. Anyone can sign up with the on-site Guide for a 15-minute time slot. Lovers will answer questions about their beloved before meeting with writers who will create a letter or poem using a typewriter or handwriting on stationery. The heart revealed!


Writers participating in the event include Wallace Baine, Lauren Crux, Stephanie Golino, Neil Hellman, Erin Johnson, Wincy Liu, Cheyenne Street Houck, Alyssa Young and more. Guides will be available to register Lovers for appointments beginning at noon.


Love Letters is a linked interactive event requiring permission from Lovers to publish poems and letters in the inaugural issue of Santa Cruz Writes’ online literary magazine,, and to display them during the MAH’s upcoming exhibition “All You Need Is Love”.
