‘A deeper connection’: UNM professors offer lessons on love lettersAnnya Loya | February 14
In a digital age, classic romantic gestures can go a long way, especially during the month of love. Two University of New Mexico creative writing professors sat down with the Daily Lobo to share tips with readers on why and how to write the perfect love letter. Diane Thiel has been teaching creative writing at UNM for 20 years and believes that “love letters are a beautiful way to build a deeper connection.” “A love letter allows one to consider and reflect and choose words carefully, rather than simply speaking in the moment,” Thiel said. Love letters can have more emotional value than other mediums and can serve as a mark of seriousness about your feelings, according to professor Sharon Warner.
