Espresso Yourself & Pop-Up Poets, Too!

A letter exists in a three-dimensional space. You can pick up a letter. You can feel it. It’s a shared object. You know it has some history with somebody who cares about you and who you care for. Getting a handwritten note makes people feel good. Making people feel good makes us feel good. Now everyone feels good!!

Join Local Coffee for a Letter Lounge & Pop-up Poetry event. We'll have a selection of stationery and cards, a couple of vintage typewriters, and a fistful of Gelly Roll pens in all the colors to help you write your personalized letter. We'll even provide a few good prompts (in case you have writer’s block). You can also give us one special word and we’ll write you a set of on-the-spot poems you can keep for yourself or add to the envelope to mail off with your letter. This event is free, but generous donations make the artists feel good.
