One of the reasons I love to write letters is the feel of the pen in my hand, the satisfying feeling of writing on beautiful paper. I love to pour my heart out into a letter, writing in the flourishing cursive that so many people are beginning to forget. Receiving letters of the same quality is like receiving a little present from the writer.

Let's go back to the days of old when letter writing was as much an art form as it was about communication. Choose your best pen, your prettiest stationery, and pen a letter that tells why you love to write letters.

Each person will receive one partner for this swap. Please write a one-page letter following the prompt above. Write in your best cursive (if you can) or your best print. You may decorate your stationery and envelope if you wish, but is not required. Just have fun and enjoy the process of writing and recieving a letter!

All are welcome to participate. Members with 1s or 3s will be able to participate after I speak with them -- I believe everyone should have a chance to redeem themselves! This is supposed to be fun, afterall.

I don't have good handwriting because chronic pain makes it really tough to write well, but I would still like to participate, do you think that would be okay?

Feet in the Soil -- that would be fine! Whatever you can do to the best of your abilities! I'd be happy to have you join.

Hello 10/25/2019 #

My stationery paper includes one 'pretty' writing paper and one blank paper is that okay? If I used both then I'll have an extra envelope with no stationery left for it...

Ok got my partner and I’m excited to send! Happy mail everyone!

Hello 11/ 5/2019 #

It's been 8 days since I mailed mine out and it was going to a town 4 hours away and I have not gotten a rating. Should I reach out to that person because I know they have received it by now.
