The first two rounds of this swap were for the Letter Lovers group, and then we decided to move it to the public swap sphere to gain some new swappers for the series! :)

ROUND ONE: For this swap, you'll simply write a letter about anything you want, any length and send it on to your partner. When you receive a letter from your partner, rate them, and make sure you hold onto it! Because, on the next round, you'll be adding your own letter to the last one you received on the previous round, and sending them both together to your partner (please staple or paperclip together) Make sense?

ALL SUBSEQUENT ROUNDS: Send on the last letter(s) you received along with your own, and rate when you receive a letter or letters from someone else.

IMPORTANT: Add your username, name, and address to the top of YOUR PERSONAL ORIGINAL LETTER that you wrote for your first round and also specify the number of people you would like to write letters for you, because that will determine how many rounds it's in before it's sent home to you. If you receive a letter whose original sender asked for seven people to write, and your the seventh person, write your letter, add it, and send the entire bundle of letters home, and then send a new letter of your own to your partner instead.

JUST JUMPING IN?: See the instructions for round one and message me with any questions.

If any of this doesn't make sense, just post below or message me, this is my first "traveling" type swap, but I think it could be great!

If we took part in #4 but haven't gotten one in the mail yet but partner has sent (from Israel so will take a while) and i haven't been rated yet, is it ok to join in, and hope that we will have one back by time to send on and if not start over. I hate to have 2 going at once. Watching now.

@transplanted1 Yes, that's fine. I just received mine for Round #4 today, so I expect it will take a while for people. If you haven't received it by, say, the 28th, I would go ahead and send out a new one of your own.

Okay! :) This is my first time participating and I am SO excited!! I received a swap from my partner today and I am the last requested letter writer for that bunch of letters... (The original writer requested 6 and I am #6) It was really fun to read through all the letters- I think they've been travelling since Feb or March-ish...I was hoping to have the opportunity to send a stash of letters home to someone and now I am able to! YAY! The letters have traveled all around the USA and even Israel. Very cool! This is probably my favorite swap ever. Love the idea! :)
