“I just read your Friday Letter and, my god, you are articulating so many things that this generation feels and often doesn’t have words for. Your words make me and so many others braver.” —BIANCA
Twice monthly essays written for smart & intentional women
Hi, I’m Jamie and every other Friday, I write raw, real Letters about love, joy, self-care, radical honesty, accepting what is, and feeling good more often than not.
Personal Letters I don’t want to share anywhere else except your inbox—you and me, intimate, pen pals, talking about the things we don’t say out loud, but know we must.

I'm Jamie Varon and I'm a writer and designer currently living in Los Angeles. I started Friday Letters in November of 2018 and wrote the first one from a coffee shop in Madrid. In a highlight-reel-world, these Letters were my way of bringing humanness and honesty back to the internet. An homage to old school blogging. They have now turned into a place where I can be my most honest self—and feel a sense of community around all these things I've kept hidden for so long. Writing these Letters has made me braver. And, because of them, I was inspired to write my first book, which I'm working on now. Thank you for being a part of this community here. Talk to you Friday!
