How I Lost My Last Pen-Pal: Toward A Luddite Manifesto
John Crutchfield's literary essay, "How I Lost My Last Pen-Pal," has been published in the online cultural journal, Berfrois: Intellectual Jousting in the Republic of Letters. The essay was subsequently featured in the "Great Essays" series in The Committee Room: Examining the Literary World, accompanied by an interview by TCR editor Mary Kalfatovic.
Beginning with the account of a personal correspondence that mysteriously ceased, the author goes on to reflect upon the place of "snail mail" in contemporary digital culture.
