This is National Poetry Month! It is also National Letter Writing Month! And, I just visited the Emily Dickinson Museum! Emily Dickinson Museum

I learned some new things about Emily Dickinson. I learned that she was a prolific letter writer all her life, and that she loved to bake (though did not like any other household chore!) And I thought this combination would make a nice swap. :)

You will have 1 partner for this swap, and it will be USA only. I will allow new swappers as long as they have a very well filled out profile (at least 3 sections). And, yes, I will angel this swap, if you are flaked on.

Details: You will send a copy of one Emily Dickinson poem (you may type or hand write the poem, any length is fine.)

You will send one recipe for baked goods. Emily specially enjoyed baking bread, making coconut cake, and ginger bread. So, if you have a special recipe for one of those, please do share! But any baked good recipe is fine, as long as it doesn't include a packaged mix in the ingredients. Please write or type out the ingredients and directions clearly!

Finally, you will include a letter to your partner. This letter should be hand written, about 2 pages of letter paper (4x6 or larger).
Letter topic is up to you. Maybe you want to share your thoughts on the poem, or where the recipe came from. Or write about something different, that is fine. :) This is not a pen pal swap, so a reply is not required (not that I have control over that). Include the name of the swap and your swap-bot ID in the letter.

Requirements 4.98 or higher ratings. No 1's or 3's that are unresolved on your ratings.

You need to have a well filled out profile - at least 3 sections. Likes, dislikes, interests, hobbies, crafts - all good places to start! :)

I"m going to allow new swappers, even unrated swappers, to join. As I said, I will angel this swap, once contact has been made and a rating has been given.

Please sign in within 2 days of sign up deadline so I know you're still with us.

Send on time! This is not profile specific, so you can get started now! :) This will be a quick turn around so check the dates and be sure you can complete it on time. If for any reason you cannot send on time, please communicate with your partner and with me! Life does happen, but we need to communicate.

When your swap arrives, please rate your partner! If you received a poem written by Emily Dickinson, a recipe for a baked good, and a letter, please rate a 5. If you don't care for the poem or recipe, please don't rate down.

And .... That's it! :) If you have any questions, please send me a PM. I don't check the comments section very often, so I might miss a question or comment, but I do check my PM's daily.

If, for whatever reason, you don't qualify for this swap but are interested in joining, please contact me. I'm open to private swaps, or might host it again later on, if there's an interest.
