Frank Warren is the creator of the PostSecret Project, a blog full of secrets anonymously shared via postcard.
Frank Warren is the creator of The PostSecret Project, a collection of highly personal and artfully decorated postcards mailed anonymously from around the world, displaying the soulful secrets we never voice. Since November 2004, Warren has received more than 500,000 postcards, with secrets that run from sexual taboos and criminal activity to confessions of secret beliefs, hidden acts of kindness, shocking habits and fears. PostSecret is a safe and anonymous "place" where people can hear unheard voices and share untold stories.
"The secrets I receive reflect the full spectrum of complicated issues that many of us struggle with every day: Intimacy, trust, meaning, humor, and desire."Frank Warren
“I think the reason I started the [PostSecret] project, even though I didn't know it at the time, was because I was struggling with my own secrets.”
“Secrets can remind us of the countless human dramas, of frailty and heroism playing out silently in the lives of people all around us.”
“It was through crowdsourcing, it was through the kindness that strangers were showing me, that I could uncover parts of my past that were haunting me.”
“Secrets can take many forms. They can be shocking or silly or soulful. They can connect us with our deepest humanity, or with people we'll never meet.”
