Letters to Your Past Self

Letters to Your Past Self Graphic

The Writing Center is proud to partner with SJSU Special Collections and Archives to sponsor a chance to reflect on this past year, which has brought about many challenges, changes, and opportunities. We want to hear about your personal experience in 2020! 

The top three submissions will also be exhibited in the Pandemic Pandemonium showcase, which explores our university community’s pandemic experiences (sponsored by the College of Humanities & the Arts).

Writers submitted based on the following prompts: 

  • Prompt A: What would you tell yourself back in January to better prepare for this year?
  • Prompt B: What is something positive you are grateful for that has come out of this year?
  • Prompt C: How have you had to adapt a yearly ritual or event, like a holiday or birthday, during this year?

Congratulations to our winners!
