Pep Talks

A Pep Talk is a handwritten letter of motivation, inspiration, encouragement, or wisdom. We asked our favorite artists, musicians, writers, filmmakers, and other cultural icons to write a Pep Talk to remind every artist of their value.

Any purchase from the Pep Shop is a donation to United States Artists to support the country's most compelling artists and a chance to win a handwritten Pep Talk. New Pep Talks are revealed every Monday through December 16, 2019. Any purchases made that week will be entered to win that week's Pep Talk. If you win, you will be notified shortly after the close of the shop. For more info, check out the FAQs.
