Pen Pal Sign Up March 2019

Welcome to the Pen Pal Sign Up of March 2019.

This is a chance to get yourself a pen pal, or two or three. I have had lots or requests lately, so I am bracing myself for this to be a busy one! This is by far the most time-consuming of all of the Bring Back Paper activities that I run, it takes me hours and hours to arrange it and get the details out, but it is worth it. I know how much it means to people to have pen pals, it’s a special thing.

So do read on if you fancy signing up and sending and receiving good old-fashioned snail mail……



How Does The Pen Pal Sign Up Work?

If you’d like to get a pen pal, you just need to send over the details to me that I’m requesting below. At the deadline, 27th March 2019, I will 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.

How Do I Get Involved?

If you would like to get involved and get some new pen pals, then please email me with the following information. Please, please do remember to include it all, you’d be surprised by how many people don’t!

Name and Address details
5 Hobbies/Interests/Likes
Whether you’d prefer to post within your own country or internationally

Email this over to me at jocelyn@thereadingresidence.com by the 27th March and I’ll pop your details into the mix. The sign up is open worldwide to over 18’s only.

Do feel free to join in if you’ve signed up to this before, there can never be any limits to the number of pen pals you can have! Keep your eye on your inbox around the end of the month and do make sure I haven’t sneaked into your junk mail as that has been known to happen.
