Dear Someone:
Letter to a Person that Changed Your Life

We've all had that person. Maybe it was a teacher. Maybe it was your best friend. Maybe it was a perfect stranger who jus happened to be in the right place at the right time. But we've all had someone who has changed our lives. For good or even sometimes for bad. This month we are collecting your letters to those people. Write a letter to the person who changed your life.

  • All letters should be submitted with a short bio of the author and an author photo.

  • All letters must be submitted in some kind of word document. Please DO NOT post your letter in the body of your email or send it as a PDF.

  • All letters due December 21st.



Natalie Very B. is a published Polish-Canadian illustrator and educator. Her artistic career is based on investigation of whimsical shapes of feminism in today’s world, as well as teaching creative skills to the youth. Her paintings reveal many Slavic folklore influences, while myths and legends are a constant source of inspiration whenever she creates a new body of work. Equality between sexes is a major issue in today’s society and a strong incentive for her to make illustrations that depict women as beautiful, empowered, and strong. Her artwork emanates wistful longing, tangible nostalgia, and exploration of the concept of “home” as a haunting visual element.
