Hello everyone! I posted this idea on our group forum to see what y'all thought, and since it got pretty good feedback I thought I'd go ahead and get the ball rolling...
This will be the 1st of a monthly series swap for our group. You will take a composition book, write an introductory letter about yourself inside, then next month pass it along to the next person. Then, when the book is full, it will be returned back to you full of letters from potential penpals! : ) I thought this would be a neat way to get to know everyone in the group.
Feel free to decorate your composition book any way you'd like... or not at all. But make sure you include your mailing info on the last page so that when it's full it can be returned to you.
Your intro letter can be any length, but I'd try to shoot for at least 2 pages. The purpose of the letter will be to tell a little about yourself so that a potential penpal will know if you share enough interests to want to write you back. You can even decorate your pages with stickers, artwork, pictures... anything you'd like to do to get your personality out there.
Make sure you include at least your username in your letter, but you can add your full mailing contact info as well if you'd like.
Then next month in #2 of the series, you'll take the book you receive from your partner this month, write an intro letter in it, then pass it to the next person. :)
I'm excited about this series and hope it'll be a successful one for our group! Let me know if you have any questions or think I've left something out... ;)
