February is InCoWriMo – International Correspondence Writing Month, a High Holy Day here at the Penventory! The gist of it? Twenty-eight letters in twenty-eight days. Hand-written, hand-stamped, hand-delivered — whether you go USPS, UPS, or Owl Post, so long as it’s snail mail, it counts.
You can learn more about InCoWriMo at the official website here. And if you’re at a loss as to whom to write, check out this list of twenty-eight people who would love to receive mail from you during February! (And you can add your own address in the comments, too.)
Don’t forget: a lifetime membership with the Letter Writers Alliance is only $5 and grants you access to the members-only shop and their fantastic penpal service, through which I’ve already found a couple of faithful correspondents.
My first letter, though, is to my dear father-in-law — a postcard with a cake recipe I’ve been meaning to give him. (Shh, don’t tell him — it’s a secret.)
Who are you writing to this month? Got any special packages to send? Let me know in the comments!
