The Pen Pal Sign-Up


When I talk about snail mail, here and over on YouTube, I often get people asking me about pen pals. So last week I shared Where to Find Pen Pals, and this month I thought I’d try to help out by putting some of you in touch with pen pals. This is a bit different to the stationery and book swaps that I run throughout the year, as hopefully it’s a chance to develop ongoing friendships via happy mail.

How Will It Work?
If you’d like to get a pen pal, send over the details to me that I’m requesting below. At the deadline, 22nd March 2017, I’ll take a look at those of you looking for pen pals, your hobbies and postage preferences, and then send over someone’s details for you to write to. The intention is that each of you will receive two people’s details that you can write to, and your own details will be passed to at least one other person. That’s the plan anyway!

To Get Involved:
If you would like to get involved, then please email me with the following information:

Name and Address details
5 Hobbies/Interests/Likes
Whether you’d be happy to/prefer to post UK or Internationally

Email this over to me at jocelyn@thereadingresidence.com by the 22nd March and I’ll pop your details into the mix, this is open to over 18’s only.

I’m hoping this will provide a little one-off service to get some of you back to writing letters again, getting a little more happy post out there in the world.

What do you think? Would you like a pen pal?
