This is a community for people who like having penpals to write and swap with. Ideally, you are joining this community because:
-You write long letters. -You swap things, from zines to fbs to stickers to postcards to decos. Anything, really. -You probably like to write other things, like poetry or novels or something. -You are tired of having pals who live near you and you want pals from different countries (I'm from the US and I want international pals) -You want to meet someone who also likes writing or zining or crafting and want to talk about the business of it, critique each other's work, and more.
So, I am Hannah, the creator/moderator/owner. My lj username is caramelsapphire. Please use the following form when posting for penpals. Try to keep your posts just to that, although asking about postage rates or something is fine, too.
[Name] [Age] [Birthdate] (since this is for international pals, please write the name of the month, followed by a number and a year. When using slashes or dashes, everyone gets confused, because depending on what country you're from, month might go first or day might go first) [Location] [Interests] [Things you swap] [Things you collect] [Genres you write] [Other artsy crafty things you're into] [Languages you speak or are learning] [Age you want your penpals to be] [Gender you want your penpals to be] [Countries you want or don't want your penpals to be from] (whatever list is shorter) [Any other interesting penpalish tidbits you want people to know]
*Rules* -No e-pals. E-pals are stupid and boring, plus you can't swap things, and plus, this is about snail mail because why get an email when you can see a cool stamp from another country and see someone's handwriting? -Be nice to everyone. -Please don't post writing for critiques. Go to my friend Lis's community for that: inkforblood. It rules. -Please have fun!
