Bring Back Paper

Pen Pal Sign Up October 2019

Welcome to the Pen Pal Sign Up of October 2019.

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 every week, so this is it and this will be the last pen pal sign up that I run in 2019.

I am planning on running it a little differently this time as otherwise it takes me two full working days to run it, and I am struggling to justify that! We will give a new way a go and fingers crossed it will work just as well and you will all soon be snail mailing.

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

Email this over to me at jocelyn@thereadingresidence.com by the 24th October 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.
