More social letterwriting! Come and join letter circle!

There is only one thing to beat yesterdays’ celebration of letterwriting in the #letterwritingsocial on twitter: Write even more letters!

Therefore, here’s a mail-call!

Creative lettercircle

Entry: First round – from now till Sunday, 16th June, 2013.

How does it work: There will be about 4 – 6 people per lettercircle.

Everyone will write a letter to everyone else in the lettercircle group.

The trick is to reply every mail you receive – and so, keep the lettercircle going.

There are several rounds of topics to follow – general topics that is, like, say “tea themed mail”.  Topics that are open enough for you to decide – and you can be as creative as you like, it should only work as a general reference.

Social letter writing aspect: you should be able to show your mail (written or/and received) on twitter or your own blog. And add “lettercircle” to each piece of mail (for instance with a rubberstamp or a tape on which you write ‘lettercircle’).

To sign up, please use the comment section here, tell abit about what letterwriting is for you, what you’re looking for in a letter-friend, add your age / interests/ location + where you can mail to (worldwide or in one continent).

  1. I had lots of penpals while at school and really miss it. There is something about the time and effort it takes to write a letter that is so much more personal than an email or text. I want to start writing letters again and am happy to write to any one from anywhere in the world. I am 36 and love real books made from paper, tea and cake, holidays in the uk, my dog and old movies. I also like analogue photography and attempt to be crafty. An old fashioned girl at heart
