Letter Writing Month Returns!

Hello friends! February is Letter Writing Month. What’s that? It’s simple. Here are the “official rules” from the website:

  1. In the month of February, mail at least one item through the post every day it runs (which in the US is every day except Sundays and Washington’s Birthday on Monday February 17th- my notes.) Write a postcard, a letter, send a picture, or a cutting from a newspaper, or a fabric swatch.
  2. Write back to everyone who writes to you. This can count as one of your mailed items.

I’ve been doing this challenge, off and on, since 2012. And this year I want to get back into it!

I generally write post cards, because they are nice and cheaper than an envelope. I already have some folks that I’m going to write, but I have twelve “wild card” slots. You can be someone I write to!

How do you get in on the action? Simple!

  • Be one of the first twelve people to respond. Please either email/direct message me, or leave a comment. You MUST include your mailing address in this message or comment, no “Did I get in?” If you don’t feel like your postal address going public, then contact me privately. And please note that I am posting this across three different platforms, so it’s the first twelve overall across all platforms, not just this one. And the when I write someone is random.
  • Promise to write back. You don’t have to do it in February, but sometime before summer would be nice. Also, you should write someone else during this month!
  • Consider donating to the cause. Stamps aren’t free, and neither are postcards. You can simply do this by buying me a Ko-fi.
  • I will also write back to anyone who writes me! See my address below.
  • The “list of twelve” is only open to people in the US, as International postage is triple that of sending a postcard domestically. However, if you are outside of the US and want to participate with me, I will write back to everyone who writes me.

Alright! Does this sound like fun to you? Then get in on the action! If writing old-school sounds silly in the year 2020, give it a shot. You may just like it!
