DON’T TELL MY MOM! “Penship” is about Jenell’s secret journey from the U.S. to England to meet Elizabeth, the woman her mother, Linda, has been writing to since 1971 but has never met. It’s a story about unfolding a 45-year friendship, while finding a way for them to meet for the first time.

About The Project

As a child, I remember seeing my mom recieve special airmail envelopes adorned with English stamps every so often. She would tell me they were from Elizabeth, her pen pal. I never asked her what was written in the letters. I just knew that I wanted to meet this woman some day and I wanted my mom to meet her too.

Since my mom has no desire to fly, I decided to travel to England to meet “Liz” on her behalf. I like to think of it as the adventure she would have taken had she the means when she was my age. There’s a part of my mom that has been in England since 1971 that I need to find. It’s time for these two devoted writers and lifelong friends to finally meet.

I’m documenting every step of my process and I invite you all to join my journey. Just DON’T TELL MY MOM!
