Former Student: Letters in Limbo

One of my all-time-fave alums, Isabella Cuan, reached out to let me know about a project she’s started (with a team!) called Letters in Limbo. I haven’t written anything yet, but it seems like a really cool project! If you’re interested in submitting a letter, head to the link:


As the coronavirus pandemic unfolds, we’ve decided to launch “Letters in Limbo”: a historical archive documenting the personal experiences of people around the world in the face of crisis.

We are inviting you to write a letter to your future self as a means of reflecting on your thoughts and experiences in the age of COVID-19.

This is an exercise in reflection and storytelling. Think about an experience you’ve had recently in the wake of the pandemic, or the rewards and challenges of your newfound routine. Whether you’re feeling confusion, grief, or joy in your day-to-day, we believe putting our thoughts in writing can help us all navigate uncertainty and capture an honest portrait of the times. 

In the aftermath of the pandemic, we will publish all submissions to the site (anonymously upon request), creating a historical record that will last for years to come. 

While social distancing measures around the world keep us apart, we hope publishing “Letters in Limbo” in one space will bring us closer together than ever before.
