Global Pen Pals
Letters are hand crafted souvenirs of expression, legacies that remind us of connections made and memories exchanged! Lighthouse Storytelling is proud to present the Global Pen Pals program: an exciting and unique opportunity for storytellers and people across the world to connect to one another. Our international letter exchange is an online program that is open to individuals of all ages and nationalities, is aimed at bringing fresh perspectives and glimpses into the lives of strangers through the age-old device of letter writing!
My personal favorite being “To swing both ways” – what seems like a normal interview with a bisexual is more than just that – it is very educative and impactful that has its feels. The range and choice of topics are impressive as I am either able to connect to them or intrigued to know and understand the different perspectives. I keenly look forward to the notification of the next blog post!

But seriously, it takes a lot for a blogger to pick a generic topic and give it a fresh perspective or outlook and that’s what makes the blog stand out. Every blog written is grey unlike other articles that are usually either black or white. Writing is like a mirror, as most of us raise questions and draw our own conclusions
Similarly, the stories published are ever-morphing, yet sticking to the true essence of what they are always meant to be. If you read under the lines, you will realize that the stories, not only take the small things in life and make them bigger, but also take the big things in life and make them even bigger.

It is bold.
It is relatable.
It is intriguing.
But most importantly, it is blatantly, straight out, Real.
The writing portrays the world as it is, no sugar coating. I feel like the stories really makes you THINK and is a real eye opener, which society oh-so dearly requires. I’m not much of a reader myself, but there’s just something about Ashitha’s storytelling that makes her work so relatable to my own life, making it wonderful to read. I would like to ask Ashitha to continue publishing stories always, for the world needs more and more of her fabulous work!
