In today’s world, people seem more divided than ever. Rather than bridging gaps and constructively communicating with each other, many people are building fences, targeting those who are different from them, and tearing each other down. In order to confront and participate in healing this division and separation, the MSU Writing Center asks you to write a letter to the other side of your metaphorical fence.
Prompt: If you were to talk to individuals on the other side of your fence, whether they are of a different gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, race, religion, political affiliation, etc., what would you want them to know about you and your experience? What would you tell them about your stance and why you feel, believe, or identify the way you do? Also, what suggestions do you have for how you can both bridge this gap and coexist peacefully?
Please complete the following steps to submit your letter:
Please note: Your name will not be on your entry, but we will use your name and email to enter you into a raffle to win a $50.00 VISA gift card. Two winners will be selected at random. If you have any question, please email us and put “QUESTION” in the subject line of the email, or setup an appointment to visit the Writing Center.
