Welcome to the Pen Pal Sign Up of May 2020.

This is a chance to get yourself a pen pal or two. The pen pal sign up is by far the most popular of all of the Bring Back Paper activities that I run, and I get emails about it regularly, so here it is! I know that many of us are staying at home at the moment, so the idea of penning a few letters might appeal to some of you and getting some mail in return might well brighten your day.

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. I will sign people up as emails come through, rather than doing it all in one batch at the end as I have done previously. It will run more like the swaps that I run in that respect. I will reply to your sign up email with details of two people that you can now start writing to.

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

Extra note: If you have taken part before, let me know the names of any pen pals you write to from this activity. This should help me to avoid signing you up to the same person again.

Email this over to me at jocelyn@thereadingresidence.com by the 25th May 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 after you have emailed and do make sure I haven’t sneaked into your junk mail as that has been known to happen.

I always supply with you with your new pen pal’s email address, in case of difficulties. I appreciate that for some there might be a delay in getting post out at the moment with various global lock downs taking place, so you might choose to email your new pen pal initially. It is entirely up to you, but I would say that all of us should be aware that some letters might arrive later on due to restrictions.

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