Believe it or not, there really is a suicide note writing class

Philosophy professor and author Simon Critchley recently held a suicide note writing workshop as part of a pop-up series dubbed the School of Death. ‘They are a last, desperate attempt at communication,” he said of suicide notes. “They are failed communication, in a sense’.

Class included a spritely discussion about suicide and included a hands-on bit where participants penned their own suicide notes in 15 minutes and shared these aloud with their peers. Hmm, does seems more life-affirming than the subject matter would suggest.
