InCoWriMo Address Exchange 2017

InCoWriMo Address Exchange 2017

While InCoWriMo has published The 2017 List featuring 28 people (and one lobster) that would love to receive your correspondence, many have expressed interest in sharing their own addresses in the hopes of receiving InCoMail in February. You can do that right here on this page in the comments section.

Simply add a comment (below) to this blog post with your name and mailing address (and perhaps a sentence about yourself or your interests). Other InCoWriMo participants will not only add their addresses, but they will also come here to search for victims willing recipients.

Keep in mind that once you have shared your mailing address on this page, it will very likely be “findable” on the internet forever and a day and until the end of time. There simply is no way to share an address publicly and also keep it private.

Donโ€™t forget to check out the InCoWriMo Planning Calendar for your month of letter writing.

Happy InCo!

    I’m a physician who took a liking for calligraphy and then decided to improve my handwriting. That’s how I began this journey and I’m loving in. I’m fond of italic nibs but haven’t found the perfect one yet.
    I would love to hear from any of you and get to know people in this classic but forgotten method.
    I promise to answer every letter.

    • Reanna Reimer

      I’ve added you to my list ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m new to fountain pens and brush script and I’m looking forward to the practice!

    • Alex

      My letter is on its way! I hope it will reach you soon ๐Ÿ™‚

      • OMG! This is so exciting. I’ll get back to you as soon as I receive it. Thank you!

    Hi everyone,
    I’m new to InCoWriMo and I’m super excited to participate. I pledge to (as soon as I am able) answer every letter I receive. I am a fountain pen fan; however, my first love are dip pens and calligraphy. I am a relationship coach and communications specialist. Also I am a nurse working with homeless veterans at my local VA Hospital. I love essential oils, holistic wellness, learning, reading, and exploring life.

  • Stephanie Jung

    I did it last year and didn’t quite make it to 29 but had a lot of fun! I love food and cooking, I have a cabinet full of tea, I enjoy watching and mocking terrible movies (but really, I enjoy the Marvel Cineverse and like sci-fi), and I do a lot of knitting as relaxation. (Pronouns she/her.) I’d love to hear about where you live and learn about other parts of the world! I’ll try to write back, as I got a few consistent penpals from last year, but I can also go several weeks before replying.

      • Stephanie Jung

        I look forward to your letter! I have been steadily replying to everything I receive so you can expect a letter back. ^_^

    This will be my first official year participating in InCoWriMo (after lurking for a few years) and while I’m not remotely adept with fountain pens, I have been working on my handwriting lately and thought this would be a wonderful way to continue my practice! I want to reply to each letter I receive but it may take me a few days to do so.

    Looking forward to hearing from any of you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hello, I’m Tami. Mother to two, step-mom to two, and dad’s girlfriend to three. I have 2 1/3 grandchildren, and I’m only 42. I may let the “F” Bomb drop once in awhile but I also know enough words that that word is not in every letter. I have seizures so I may forget what I’ve told you or what you’ve told me, but I’m constantly saying the same things over and over. ๐Ÿ™‚ I do my best to write back right away, but it may take a while to get back to you. Stray cat hairs will likely appear in your letters, that’s just my kitty Earl saying hello.

    If you write please put InCoWriMo somewhere in the letter so I don’t wonder who the heck you are and why I’m getting a letter. Thanks in advance.

    Am I the only non-fountain pen enthusiast?

    • Debby Brown

      Hi Tami, I wouldn’t say I’m a fountain pen enthusiast but I have been using them for some of my letters. I’m fond of using scented felt-tips but not everyone might appreciate them! As I’ve never sent a letter to the USA from the UK before I have no idea how long they take to get there. I have sent you a letter from the UK on the 3rd February so watch out for a letter with an owl sticker on the back! Debby.

      • tamiwinbush

        Thanks for the letter. It’s a little far on the answer pile, but it is in there. I WILL get back to you. Huggles to you, Ian, and Winter.

      • tamiwinbush

        I got the letter, but I’m a little behind on my correspondence right now, but I will get back to you. I promise. <3

    …I actually would chose a pencil over a pen nine times out of ten. A bit about me: I am addicted to reading (and I dabble in writing…NaNoWriMo anyone?). I am a farm-girl turned middle school teacher. My favorite things include elephants, the color green, being outside when I won’t freeze my face off (aka, not winter in Minnesota), and collecting books. I love learning about anything and everything, especially things I can pass on to my students!

    One of my fellow teachers told me about InCoWriMo today and as soon as I heard what it was, I had to check it out! There’s just something about seeing written words on a page…sigh, <3

    PS- if you write to me, I'll write to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • I’ll be writing to you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Meg Walker

      I’ll write to you… with a pencil! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’d love love love to hear from anyone. I already have a few pen pals, and in most cases I do try to write back to new correspondents. This is my first year to hear about InCoWriMo and while I’m not sure I can manage all 28 days (health reasons) I’d certainly like to try!

    Please feel free to write to me. I’m 29 years old and married, so friendly letters only please. Tell me a story about who you are. About what you dream of. About your favorite things. About a favorite memory. Surprise me!

    I am a reader, poet, and lover of Japanese culture and language. I’m also very geeky/nerdy about many, many things. Snail mail is one of things that I love the most and I’m very old-fashioned in that regard.

      Lissa, I just got your letter in the mail yesterday! Funny thing is, I just mailed one to you that morning! I’ll be writing back to you soon, so if you were planning to reply maybe just wait another day or two until my next letter comes, haha!

      • Lissa Clouser

        Too funny!!! I’ll wait to hear from you again before I reply then. =) My replying game may be a little slow in the midst of InCoWriMo anyway. lol

    • Debby Brown

      Hi, keep an eye on your mail for an envelope with an owl sticker on the back. Hopefully it survived the post! I sent it on the 6th so you may already have it. Happy InCoWriMo, Debby.

      • Aww!! Excellent, I look forward to it. I’ll write back! (And yes I did try NaNoWriMo and am on yet another draft of the draft I wrote during the event. Hehe. C: )

    Oh – and its called Halfway House because it was the carriage stop to change horses between Pretoria and Johannesburg back in the day. Its not the other thing. ;p

    2017 will be my first InCoWriMo! Thank you to JetPens for asking if I would be participating over on Twitter. Currently, I’ve got four fountain pens – three of them are Waterman.
    I’m a Project Manager, PMP, and use my project management skills to juggle blogging daily while working full-time.
    Since February 26, 2015, I’ve been blogging daily at my site AnchoredScraps.com to encourage others to regularly carve out time to connect with others via โ€œoldโ€ styles of correspondence – letter writing, such as handwriting notes and sending cards to friends and family. Categories include stamps, fountain pens, postcards, typewriters, stationery, postmarks, … and an occasional blog post on our 9 month-old Brittany spaniel puppy Cooper, who is a sock thief!
    This month will see my 700th daily blog post. I’d love to hear from anyone listing here and if you write me I will write you back. And I like the idea suggested of putting InCoWriMo on the outside of the envelope! Here’s to a great 2017!

      Hello Mrs.Helen! Im Fasya, 12 years old girl from Indonesia. I will write you, but can you write me back? Because i send a lot postcard, but i never received one back ๐Ÿ™

    About me. I like to change my hobbys very often. I love outdoor sports, climbing and hiking. Recently i started to improve my handwriting and i started to use the fountain pens and i loved it. So here i am. I would be happy if i receive some letters!

    • John E. Dunn

      Hello Krzysztof, I would be glad to write to you! This is my first InCoWriMo as well. I miss the days of hand written letters from my pen pals & cousins and I recently started collecting fountain pens. This is a great way to put them to good use. If you do not mind getting letters from some total stranger in the USA I will look forward to exchanging letters and will be mailing one to you today. ๐Ÿ™‚ Have a great day! –John

      • Krzysztof

        Thank You, John! I’ll write back as soon as I get your letter. It’s so exciting ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey, Iโ€™m (26) a journalism/communications student, who loves to shoot people (photography), literature, music (mostly rockish), movies and series, cultures, art and design. I like my letters to be handwritten and full of inky stains since Iโ€™m not a neat and tidy writer or a neat and tidy anything at all. More like the chaotic type of person, whose thoughts leap from cheesecake to outer space and who loves the English language and humour. And crumpets and tea.
    Well, I like dystopias, the usual Bukowksi, Ellis, Palahniuk, Welsh combo, the Dark Tower series and a lot of stuff from authors, who are already dead. Apropos, I love the wits and quirkiness of Bryan Fuller but I also watch people die on other TV-shows. I also like playing cards against humanity or Life is Strange, which makes it sound even worseโ€ฆ Well, I donโ€™t take myself too seriously and though my head might not be the size of a planet, mankind sometimes seems a little off to me…
    So, if all of that doesnโ€™t confuse you on a scale from 9 ยพ to 42, feel free to drop me a line… or two ๐Ÿ˜‰
    And if you want to do me a favour, please tell me what makes you happy in case yo

    PS: Lamy 2000 is my favourite and this is my first InCoWriMo ๐Ÿ™‚

    My first time doing InCoWriMo, I am a 26-year old college student who also works as a radio journalist and as one of the editor’s in chief of my university’s newspaper. I’ve always been a writer, but I got into fountain pens about a year and a half ago. I save up my money so I can buy pens when I can afford them! Journaling is also a big hobby of mine. I am also interested in researching open source software and its benefits to the journalism community. I will do my best to reply in due time! I look forward to hearing from you. PS. If you plan on mailing me, please use my address exactly as it appears above. We have a very strict postmaster here ๐Ÿ™‚ !

  • Lez Cartwright

    Great… Ive been thinking about this as I dont have many addresses and I did have a try last year. Ive saved the letters of those who replied to me last time and will be writing again. Thank you to everyone on here who have provided their address and I’m going to have a bash at writing to everyone.
    I was really pleased to see Eric again at the sit down with his son, SBRE and Azizah. I know 2016 wasnt a good year for alot of folks but hopefully the ink will flow through the pen community again and we will see more of him.
    One thing more… Im a bit bothered about putting my home address on the blog and was wondering if theres a InCoWriMo postal address for forwarding mail.??? I would pay for this. I dont really want to set up a PO BOX. UK. Address. Any ideas??? I’ve not seen anything like this on the blog so far but my pudding brain may have missed it.
    Anyway best wishes to all pen people and I hope to write to you soon.

        Hi Brandy,

        I got sick of seeing sticky notes everywhere and the number of times I lost my to-do list lol.

    I’m 53 and single, and this is my first InCoWriMo. I speak (and read and write) English and Spanish, both fluently. I’ve traveled to Europe, Central and South America, and many US states. I love reading and writing. I love foreign and independent cinema. I love writing letters with fountain pens but I don’t consider myself a fountain pen expert by any stretch. I live in the heart of the city and love the hustle and bustle and being in close proximity of everything, but every so often I crave a quiet day here and there. I love hand-made items and artisan-anything! Oh! I almost forgot – I love candles and usually write my letters at night, by candlelight. I promise to write you back if you write – and if you want to continue being pen pals after InCoWriMo, I’m all for it! I currently have 3 pen pals and I’m actively looking for more! Thanks and happy letter-writing!

    I’m a paper crafter, a knitter and a crime drama addict. I recently found my fountain pens from art school and am becoming reacquainted with them. I’m 40 yrs old & 15 yrs hitched, raised in the Midwest, but I love to travel the world. This is the first time I’ll be participating in InCoWriMo…I have decided that 2017 will be my year of handwriting, so I’ve started a journal and would love to have a few pen pals, here in the US as well as around the globe! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m a nurse in a drug/alcohol detox in San Francisco. I mostly use my fountain pens for drawing, but I’m interested in reaquainting myself with my letter writing skills. My other passion is playing traditional Irish music. I would be happy to hear from anyone, but especially other artists and musicians.

    I am a 22 year old aspiring writer, who was recently married. With a severe lack to friends who enjoy writing near where I live, I am hoping that InCoWriMo can help me find other people who enjoy writing. I recently got into fountain pens when I decided to hand write my current work in progress and believe this is the best way to help me learn how to use it!

    Hello! I’m looking for pen pals from anywhere in the world. I am 54 female, working as a software applications programmer. I love to travel and usually take a trip abroad with friends every year as well as road trips to visit family around the US. I am rediscovering my creative side and hoping to take drawing lessons this year. I’ve recently become discovered fountain pens and I’m especially drawn to the amazing inks. I also spend time at home knitting, sewing and reading.

    Hello, Im a Biochemistry and Music student, and I work as a Lab Specialist. I dont really want to talk about that stuff though. Haha. I mean I love it, but its not really interesting to talk about for me.

    Using this as a reason to keep writing and honestly to make use of the fountain pen I own. Would love to meet new people and just talk about life. With my ever shrinking amount of free time, it gets hard to be very social, so I hope I can stay motivated and write the entire month long. It is my first month, so have mercy ;_;.

    Im a 23 year old single male whose never written a single mailed or handwritten letter in his life. February 1st will be the first, so let me know if youd like to be my first letter. I have my friggin’ idea about what to write…,so any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi all, I have filled up my compendium and can’t wait to start writing!

    I am from Adelaide, Australia. In the past, I was an active Postcrossing participant. I am into exploring creative techniques and alternative photographic processes with my film cameras. When I am not shooting, I can be found up a book! My interests lie in history, the arts & culture, some classics and a good mystery novel.

    I am also interested in all things Japanese and have restarted origami folding. Sometimes, I draw and paint.
    I am also a big fan of all stationeries and writing materials (kikki.k is my guilty pleasure). I hope to use my fountain pens more often this year.

    Do let me have your addresses and we can swap stories, random thoughts, PoV (points of views), etc. You may even find a small origami in your letters too!

    Just a small request. I collect stamps and postal stationeries and try to use commemorative/special issue stamps in my mail.

    I would really appreciate it if you could write to me on an aerogramme (they are the perfect length for a first letter), use prepaid envelopes issued by the post office or commemorative/special issue stamps on your covers! Again, this is just a request

    • Liv Quarrelle

      Hi Jeremy I will be writing to you! From the UK…I will try and find some commemorative stamps if possible, if not certainly something beautiful from my home town of Bath. With love Liv

      Hello Jeremy! If you do not mind getting letters from some total stranger in the USA I will be glad to write to you! You’re the only other stamp collector I’ve found amongst all the nice, pleasant people who have posted messages here. ๐Ÿ™‚ I apologize; I don’t think there’s a way to get an aerogramme anywhere in my small rural town but I will CERTAINLY decorate your envelope with colorful commenmorative stamps and will be glad to send you a few inside the letter for your collection too. I’m a complete amateur when it comes to philately…no rarities or particularly “scholarly pursuits” in my stamp collection…but I still enjoy it. Ordinary business-class “definitive” stamps are boring…I prefer more colorful postage. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy InCoWriMo! Not sure how long it takes to get a letter to you but expect one soon. Have a good day!

    This is my first time participating in the challenge, so it made my day to see this list of names and addresses. I look forward to a treasure trove of leads for February letters! I find reading and writing to be a great form of relaxation, as I spend my day staring at a computer screen (I’m a copy editor). I am a married mother of two girls (ages 16 and 14) and a boy (12). I’m 52 and I work for a sports media company, so I’m surrounded by a lot of millennials. They’re interesting and inspiring; in fact, it was a young co-worker who helped me renew my interest in stamp collecting after our discussion about childhood hobbies that had fallen by the wayside. I try to choose cool stamps for my outgoing mail, as I’m as much a stamp appreciator as a stamp collector. I have a long drive to work, so I’m always interested in podcast suggestions. I’m a “MFM” fan,and thanks to them, read a lot of true crime. I also seem to hoard note cards and coffee. I’ll try to write back!

    • @susan_banning:disqus Wow on having a 17-year old rescue cat! Will you be okay getting a letter from a “dog” person ?! Our 9 month old brittany-spaniel puppy Cooper will probably have to “help” me when I’m writing to you. I’m a member of our local stamp club here and will be sure to use some cool stamps when I write to you!

        Hi Helen! I would love that — Cooper sounds adorable. I wish there were a stamp club around here. I’ll look forward to the cool ones you pick!

It’s just me and the cat now that my grown son has moved to another state with his fiancee. I am turning 50 this year and am looking for ways to make more meaningful connections in my life. I love to travel, cook (and eat), read. I love good espresso and dark chocolate, although I’m not eating chocolate currently as I’m doing my first ever Whole 30. I recently started bullet journaling, and I love it!! I have been practicing hand lettering and doodling. I have to stop myself from buying all the pens and great paper I come across. I miss the days of receiving letters in the mail, and would love to receive some. I’ve never done InCoWriMo and am looking forward to the challenge.

    • @lynneguerne:disqus Congratulations on currently building a tiny house! Given space is such a premium (from seeing shows on them on HGTV), it speaks volumes you are making room to include letterwriting! I’l definitely be sure to write you early in February.

      Hi Maria, Is this your complete address? Does it need a postal code? I visited Florence 17 years ago and it is still my favorite city.

      • Holly Lin

        I was wondering the same thing because when I look online about addressing letters to Italy, it shows there are postal codes. So I’m not sure how to address this and make sure it gets to her.

    • Karine Peyrot

      Hi Maria, I just discovered Incowrimo ths morning and will be really happy to exchange with you. I looove nice handwrinting too.

      Anche io sono di Firenze e mi farebbe davvero piacere poter conoscere qualcuno che abbia le mie stesse passioni! Non sono molto brava con la calligrafia, anzi, la mia grafia lascia piuttosto a desiderare. Sto cercando di migliorare, forse potresti darmi qualche suggerimento ๐Ÿ™‚

      Maria- What is your postal code? There are about 20 different codes in Florence…

    Retired – from childhood to adulthood have gone from the country to the city to the suburbs. Have fallen in and out of love with fountain pens from childhood (both vintage and new).. Started when an uncle bought me, as a pre-teen, a beaufiful blue Sheaffer sknokel fountain pen. He had his doubts since I chose it over a catcher’s mitt for a birthday present. Also a sometime pocket knife collector.
    Love dogs, the big ones, reading, music and hiking.

    Hello all! I’m actually featured in the “28 People who would love to receive your letters,” but unlike everyone else on the list, I’m not known famously for anything. I’m very honored and thankful to be included on the official list ๐Ÿ™‚ But I thought it be beneficial to share a little bit about myself:

    Hello! (once again). My name is Francis Delapaz, 31, and I live in southern California in the United States.

    Things I love include: cats (I have 5), pets and animals, food (I consider myself a foodie and I love to eat and cook), science (I’m a big time nerd and I consider myself a life-long learner, letter-writing (of course), fountain pens, learning to sketch with ink (I’m really into Edward Gorey right now), LEGO, electric guitar, heavy metal music, horror movies, did I mention cats?, COFFEE!!, spiders, horror movies, books (horror, science, humor, sci-fi), stand-up comedy, Japanese language and culture, and a whole list of seemingly random things.

    For work, I’m a health educator who works with marketing and media in a local government agency. Additionally I am a photographer shooting mostly events and products (the dessert variety), but for fun I love to shoot macro/close-up of nature, bugs, and LEGOs.

    This is my first official InCoWriMo, learning about it last year at its tail end, though I’ve been letter-writing for over a year now. I’d be happy to receive your letters!

    I am really excited to participate in InCoWriMo! I just found out about it and I think it’s the best idea ever!
    I have always loved to write and receive letters but most people I know are not keen on writing, so it will be a treat to get to know like minded people!

    I’m just beginning to use fountain pens, though I used a very cheap one for years for journaling and writing terrible poetry in high school. I love written correspondence and regularly exchange handwritten letters with my dearest friend.

    I enjoy paper crafting, gardening, and exploring different creative mediums. Recently, I’ve taken up Bullet Journaling and am loving it! I have one cat, and feed three feral cats that discovered how much of a sucker I am.

    I used to be obsessed with Hebrew, though mostly grammar and verb conjugations, but my ability level has greatly diminished over the past several years without the daily use and I’m trying to work back up there. So, if there are any Hebrew speakers/writers out there willing to suffer through reading a little of my Hebrew, I’d love to hear from you!

    This is my first InCoWriMo and I’m very excited about it! Anyone who writes will receive a response!

    I had a fountain pen as a teenager and thought it was the coolest thing. I’m sure it was a cheap pen and the only thing I remember about it was that the pen was bright yellow.
    Recently I have rediscovered fountain pens and have started collecting. Needless to say I have also discovered it is an expensive hobby. This is my first InCoWriMo and I’m looking forward to the challenge.

    I’m so glad to have found this project!
    My New Year’s Resolution for 2016 was to write a letter a day, and I am proud to say that I have stuck with it, except for some really busy times such as exams. It has changed my life for the better in so many ways. I look forward to InCoWriMo for February, and connecting with people I know and some I hope to get to know.
    I have reconnected with high school friends from over 25 years ago, and gotten closer to many of my family and friends. I’ve made new pen pals, and feel that my life is richer. As a high school teacher keen to protect my privacy, I do not participate in any social media. Letter writing provides the connection with others, and I value the personal aspect.
    I am a high school French teacher, avid reader, camper, traveler, geocacher, mom to two teens, Little Free Library steward, wife of 22 years to the love of my life, antique sock machine sock knitter, fountain pen user, stationery junkie, and more.
    I’d love to get a letter from you, and I will write back.

    Hello everyone! I heard about InCoWriMo from a friend and it is right up my street. My boyfriend rolls his eyes as I stop at every postcard stand at home or on holiday and how lovely to have more willing victims of my ramblings!

    I currently live in Vancouver BC, but am originally from England. I made the trip across the pond in September and love it here so much. I adore travel, reading and crafts. I can be a nosy so and so and love to know where is your favourite place in the world? What is your best childhood memory? Guilty pleasure?

    I am so looking forwards to buying more stationary with this challenge an excellent excuse! Who knows, maybe a lasting pen pal friendship can be born ๐Ÿ™‚ Feel free to ask any questions about England (no I don’t know the Queen ;p ) or what it feels like to emigrate with just a suitcase in one hand, and my boyfriend’s hand in the other!

    Can’t wait to hear from you!

I’ve become a fountain pen enthusiast this year and I am an avid journaler. I have for most of my life. I lost most of my journals in a house fire a couple of years ago so this has given me a different perspective of writing my life. I’d love to hear from you. I also love Zentangle.

    Hi everyone! Seems I’m the only Brit on here… hmm. Anyway.

  • Cora T

    Hi guys! My boyfriend Alex and I decided to both participate in this year’s InCoWriMo.

    My name’s Coralie (or Cora, Coco, Big Mama, Brown Sugar – however you like) I’m 25 years old and live in Bavaria, Germany. I work as an IT system manager and developer in Munich.
    Most important: I love cake! Like…. love! Love! A life without cake? No way! Cake <3 That's basically my whole character description ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Oh, I'm probably addicted to buying stationary (and cake). This may be the main reason I wanted to partake in the first place. Yay, an excuse for buying paper!

    About Alex (written by myself, so you won't get anything more accurate and honest)
    He's my beloved 26 year old "Dickerchen" (minimization of plump, chubby), proud owner of four chest hairs and at least seven hairs on his head! He loves music, plays the guitar in a Thrash Metal band and likes to discuss. So if you always wanted to talk about "the benefits of red meat towards your MANliness" he's your man! Furthermore he's a typical bavarian guy loving beer, Leberkรคse and Schuhbladln (ok, that one was a lie, but maybe you can convince him to try it ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    We're really excited to receive your letters, either addressed to both of us or just one of us – whatever you prefer =D

    • Gustavo

    Hello everybody ! I’m a new mom of a 6 month’s baby girl and I’m just full of love. Hahaha !
    But I’m a little isolated (I don’t work) so it would be a additional ray of sunshine to read you.
    I’m interrested… well in almost everything !!! I especially love biology, reading, pets (I have 2 dogs, 2 crazy dachshunds and as soon as we have a bigger house, we’ll adopt other pets), drawing and painting (I’ll try to draw on each letter), cooking, and learning new things everyday.
    I’m so impatient to read you ! And to respond to you of course !

    See you soon !

    Hio all,
    First InCoWriMo, but I have a few penpals that I’ve been writing to for several year now. Really enjoy writing even if that bit slower than the penpals might always like ^.^ I have a few fountain pens and more inks that seem to be ever expanding in number. Quite a few different letter sets so here’s hoping that this will help use a few more sheets up and get rid of the extra envelopes (why do they give you so many?)
    Also a fan of Lego, photography (analogue), Japan (want to learn to read/write Japanese) and basic cookery.
    In case you were wondering, it’s not my real name but way to convince other half.

  • Nickolas Marinelli

    I own only two (inexpensive) fountain pens, a few sheets of less-than-idea writing paper, and have a barely-legible hand. Of course, I don’t let that stop me from putting ink to paper. Write to me and I’ll write back to you. You probably won’t be able to read it, but it should be nice to receive a hand-written letter nonetheless.

    This is my first InCoWriMo! I love writing letters and need to get a lot better about it.

    My interests are: church (Christian), BuJo (bullet journaling), arts/crafts like watercolors, acrylics, diy, and such, my cat who chose me last week, and I love to meet new people and can talk about anything and everything regardless. I’m pretty open and been through lots so nothing surprises me. I also enjoy cooking, a good glass of wine or a beer, and tv and movies. I’m a sucker for romantic comedy, action, and drama not at all horror or suspense or thrillers. I also enjoy poetry and writing my own. My fav poets are Robert Frost and Emily Dickinson.

    Feel free to send a letter. I will write back, even after the month is over!

    Hey there! This is my first time at InCoWriMo and I’m very excited! I’d be happy to receive all kinds of mail, and also I’m looking for long-lasting snail mail friends.
    I’m 27 years old and live in the middle of Germany. I’ve studied literary studies at university and work currently part time on some kind of library stuff. I love books (obviously), animals (I have a lovely dog called Wednesday), vegan food, the nature, music, art, photography (mostly I use my Sony alpha 68), all kind of creative stuff (sewing, embroidery and so on) and I do juggling/flow arts/circus stuff (mostly hula hoop and fans, also with fire).

    I love children’s books, so maybe you could tell me in your letter/postcard about your favorite one? That would be awesome!
    I won’t promise to answer instantly (real life can be tricky), but I’ll answer as soon as possible! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hope to hear from you in February, and I wish you a happy InCoWriMo!

    Hello!

    This is the first time I have participated in InCoWriMo, but it seems like a good idea. I got into fountain pens a few years ago and got addicted enough to start turning my own and selling a few. And I do mean a few. I have, like, tens of satisfied customers. If that. http://32pens.ca.

    But what the heck? It helps pay for the hobby, as I am a full-time software developer otherwise. And I would love to hear from you.

    Cheers,

I’m hoping to get some of my older pens back in circulation by using a different fountain pen for every letter. I’m not sure I have 28 different inks, but we’ll see about that also. I will definitely reply to everything I receive. Happy handwriting!

    This is my first time participating in InCoWriMo! I’m excited to make new friends. I’m also left handed and just figured out how to use my fountain pen. ๐Ÿ™‚

    A little about me: Photographer, Pilates instructor, and skin care enthusiast. Avid reader and bullet journal user. Would love to have you share your thoughts and creativity with me!

    • Renaud Campana

      Bonjour Karla, can i send you a letter?

      • Karla Kelley

        Yes please! I’d be delighted. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Renaud Campana

          thank you

  • Over 200 have signed up at https://incowrimo-2017.org/ (created because regular InCo participants didn’t think this site would be updated this year – no update in 2016 for last year, and the brief disappearance of this/fpgeeks forum in March 2015).

    • @InCoMorgaine:disqus Thank you so much for providing the link.

      It sounds like if I want to know everyone participating – it would be the list of names here, AND those listed over at https://incowrimo-2017.org/.
      By merging the two I would have a complete listing of everyone participating and know who to write. It sounds like there could be duplicates between both places. Just wanting to make sure I’m not missing anyone.

      Thank you again, this is my first year to participate in InCoWriMo.
      P.S. I’ve gone over to that link and signed up there too.

  • Sakshi Reddy

    Hi all!

    I’m a recent graduate of literature, a lover of fantasy, a fountain pen person, and a newbie brush letterer. I also love dogs. A lot.

    I enjoy putting pen to page and InCoWriMo will give me chance to do so with the added bonus of receiving snail mail! Write to me and I promise to reply with a plethora of inky goodness ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looking forward to letters!

    Hello!

    I think I have already posted here, but I won’t miss out on the chance to find willing recipients because my phone crashed (this is why paper and pens are better- they don’t crash!).

    I have been super excitedd about InCoWriMo since I found about it; I think it’s a great idea! I always wanted penpals but it was never feasible as we shifted every few years. I do write to family but busy schedules mean that I mostly receive just cards and stuff. This will be such a great opportunity to finally get to know some like minded people and correspond the old fashioned way!

    I am a fountain pen enthusiast and a Literature graduate. Things I love: everything Tolkien, Rowling, Lewis, and Wodehouse, among many others; Doctor Who (I think 9 was the best); brush lettering and calligraphy; dogs <3; coffee, dogs, ink, watercolours, poetry, and dogs again. My current favourite pen-ink combination is the Platinum 3776 BB with Sailor Rikyu Cha.

    I look forward to writing (and receiving!) letters. If you write to me, I promise to reply with a load of inky goodness ๐Ÿ™‚

      mmm…inky goodness! I’ll definitely write, as I haven’t met anyone else who prefers the 9th Doctor!

  • Pity David Bowie stamps will be issued in March – they would have looked so good on InCoWriMo-2017 mail if they came out in Feb instead!

    • George Terrill

      Some folks will keep writing back after Feb 28. so there may sill be a demand for these stamps.

  • April Smith

    I had a goal for 2017 to do something new. InCoWriMo seems to be prefect for this goal. I enjoy bujo (bullet journal), fountain pens, pens, planners, washi tape, stickers, Dr. Who, Criminal Minds, American Horror Story, animals, stamping, art (trying to draw and paint but not so good at it), cooking, etc.
    I will try to answer anyone who writes me.

    We have a whole houseful of pets and people. I love to hear about new
    places and people and every letter will be replied to with pens and ink
    from my trusty stash. I love wax seals and other fun ways to decorate

    Enjoy!

I am a writer, crafter, pianist, book lover, and Christian. Before the internet and social media, I wrote letters a lot. I want to get back into the habit if I can. I may be slow because writing or anything hurts (I have moderate to severe fibromyalgia), but I will get to it. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will do my best to reply to every letter I get.

    I am a retired accountant/instructor that is entirely caught up in all things writing. Writing 2 novels, journaling daily, sketching novice, spiritual mentor and loving wife, mother, grandmother. Wow! No wonder retirement is so busy!

    The cost of postage is such that letters are all I can participate in. Trying to do the “random acts of kindness” where you include little bonuses has almost emptied the bank – LOL. A $3 item costs $15 to mail so… I love this idea of the written word being a gift. Sorry to see only one other “local” in northern BC. Had to join.

    Love my fountain pens and just getting to a point of “collecting” the better ones.

    This is my first InCoWriMo, and I hesitated because I wondered if I could find enough people to write to . . . well, that was easy! *laughing*

    Hope to hear from one of you at any time.

    Hi there. I’ve decided to participate in InCoWriMo this year because letter writing was my favourite thing as a child but now I hardly ever use it. I love reading, storytelling, drawing, and cooking. I am not necessarily talented in all those areas but I love doing them. I am very interested in learning different languages and know the basics of Spanish and Japanese.
    Note: I am in the military and my current address is a military address so it most likely won’t show up on any maps but that’s my address lol

    Hello !!
    Currently, I am in my first year of college and love the idea of writing and receiving letters. Discovering Incowrimo was very exciting for me. I write to my friends and family a lot but rarely have anyone write to me because of it being an inconvenience to many people. I’d love to receive a letter from anyone from anywhere. I would definitely write back. Looking forward to February !

    So I have no idea how many letters you will send me. I tried to estimate it but have no clue. But I will try to answer all of them. That’s a promise and I am ready to spend a fortune on stamps ๐Ÿ™‚ I am an editor and writer, a photographer and working as a graphic designer and traveling the world. I am interested in almost everything you will write me, if you need some input: How about politics and media? The reason of life and the expansion of the universe? Or about art? Really, go ahead with any topic and I will have an opinion on it ๐Ÿ™‚ I am liberal and open minded so you can be sure you get an answer even if I do not share your ideals.

    As a fountain pen and calligraphy enthusiast since about the age of eight (including Japanese brush calligraphy, as I was sent to a Japanese international school – random!), @InCoWriMo could be positioned no further up my alley than it already is, and I don’t mean that the way you might have taken it. That’s wrong. I also had my first international penfriend when I was seven. We both loved ABBA and Racey, though we lived on the planet’s opposite faces. That thrilled me! I’ve never lost that thrill. A stranger who becomes so well-known if the chemistry is right, yet we never meet, never speak, never breathe the same air, yet we’ve touched the same piece of paper and shared little drawings, pet pics, little presents, secrets, language/lingo/slang…! I am a Sydneysider, recently relocated to Melbourne, a far superior city (tell no Melbournian I said that; we have a bitter rivalry dating back centuries!), and I am obsessed with the cutenesses that are my little dog, Kenji (12), and his little sister kitten, Cocoa (9 weeks), just acquired. I could write about my hobbies and interests forever but it would take too much space up, so: visuals, colour, design, animals, reading, learning, cultural exchange, the craft(ing) of v sharp comedy, art, nature, individualistic humans, politics, love, great like, writing, photography, beach, swimming, argh!! That’s 2% of it for starters. Wanna be my penfriend?

    • I will try and write!

        Oh, that would be great! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi folks,
    I have just stumbled across InCoWriMo! I have always been an avid letter writer and am also a stationary obsessive! I am based in the beautiful spa town of Bath in the South West of the UK.
    I am a huge Midori fan and love Japanese stationary which is very hard to find in the UK. I am a yoga teacher and love to travel!
    I have also just taken on an allotment which is a small garden to grow veg and flowers as I dont have a garden of my own so as we move into spring I look forward to spending lots of time out in the fresh air.
    Other than that I love food and a good glass of wine now and again.
    It would be wonderful to hear from people all over the world; I cant wait to meet you through the power of the pen and hope to set up some new worldwide friendships x Liv

    I’m a Brazilian architect and doctorate student that loves writing, reading, coffee and wine. It’s always better to write or read with a cup full of good coffee or a glass full of wine.

    I’m an artist and photographer, and I love receiving mail. I participate in Postcrossing, and I’ve also done some mail art exchanges in the past, but a lot of moving has put a damper on that. I’ve only been living in Michigan for a few months – I’m originally from California, but have also lived in Colorado, Kansas, Belgium, and Italy.

    I’m married, have two grown children, and one grown but still dependent Australian Cattle Dog. I like crafts of all kinds (knitting, crocheting, papercrafts, bookbinding, carving rubber stamps are just a few examples) and watching tennis (right now I’m destroying my sleep schedule by watching the Australian Open in the middle of the night), soccer, and hockey since we’re here in hockey-land, although I don’t understand it very well. Looking forward to sending and receiving some letters in February (and beyond?)!

    Hi! I’ve participated the year before last and had such a great time, I’d love to give it another go. I am (also) a fountain pen enthusiast, so I think this is a great way to make me use some of my ink.

    Hey Everyone!
    I can’t wait for February to get here! I’ve just started creating my list in my Bujo for my letter writing, but I want to be receiving too! I’ve always enjoyed writing, as a child I would pretend my scribble was cursive >XD. Last time I think I received any hand written letters was in my early teens from those I had met at summer camp. Everyone went home with a packet with everyone’s addresses so we could all keep in touch. Then Internet/Email came along and away went hand written letters. But I remembered the excitement of going to the mail box and there being a letter just for me and I would like to feel that again! I also promise to reply to any letter I get. I’m a 27 year old hair stylist/ waitress/ furniture refurnisher. I have lots and lots of hobbies but I’m a serious reader. Reading is my number one passion and pastime. It may be why I’m always filled with random information. I’m a cat lover but also have a dog baby too! I love history, fashion, coffee, bullet journaling, fitness, anything fun and interesting ( I am a gemini after all and live up to it!) So yeah that’s me! I really would love to hear from you guys! Happy writing everyone!

    Hello there, people of the paper. I’m here because I’m physical-writing-addicted. And exchanging-thoughts-addicted. And, yes, a poet too. Should you write to me, please, expect my letters to be, well – slightly surreal, maybe. Or not. No idea yet. I just love the feeling of sending out my soul. And reading someone elses. Would welcome it with my most attentive perception. Yours truly, Jitka.

    I’m
    an avid knitter. When not wound up in yarn, I like to sketch, paint,
    use fountain pens, go for walks, take photos, write, read, listen to
    podcasts, binge Netflix and cook. My favorite show of all time is the
    West Wing, followed second to everything sci-fi. Fall in New England is
    my favorite time and place to be, though I ache to travel back to
    Iceland. I love book suggestions, and have a few good ones of my own to
    pass along. This is my first InCoWriMo, and I can’t wait to meet you

    Hi there !

    my name’s Camille, and I’m a french young human aged 17. I’m definitely on my way to bilinguism, so even if my english is not perfect, I’d love to join the community of “world-wide pen pals” ! I’m truly unable to draw nicely, or to handletter like … most of you, I see, but I love writing and exchanging point of views, so I’m sure we’ll find interesting things to talk about !

    A little bit about the things I like :
    reading, writing, the colour blue, listening and singing good music, the cold, geeking and otakuing (and inventing verbs), sport, poetry, water, circus, cinema, video games, political topics, arts, travels, postcards, fantastic maps, theatre, disney songs … and obviously, discovering a letter in my mailbox, which is the highest point of satisfaction for me.

    I’m quite anxious about leaving my adress here, mainly because I’m not alone in this house (not-eighteen-stuff), but if you’re interested in my conversation, please, feel free to send me an email and I’ll be happy to give you my full location there ! I’ll answer everyone the best I can !

    Hi everyone this is my first year doing this and I’m excited about writing new people. A little about me I’m a 28 year old stylist so naturally I love anything related to hair and makeup. I have two girls ones nine months the other is seven years old so between the two they keep me busy. But I need to use my fountain pens and I need some mommy time so this gives me an excuse to find time to do something for myself. I also enjoy cooking, anime and manga anything to do with Egypt and microbiology and any science to be honest. My address is

    Hi from OZ,

    Been a pen nut for as long as I can remember (an aunt gave me my first pen when I was about 10 in Tassie) and have been collecting, having stolen and using fountain pens of all sorts for years.

    The current crop are Visconti, Twisbi, Waterman and Mr Pen and I’m looking forward to having an excuse to use them and some of Robert Oster’s fantastic Australian made inks.

    Despite being an IT bloke, I keep all my notes by hand and love having inkie fingers.

    P.

    • pnunn

      So, two weeks in and still on track. Writing to people on this list mostly rather than the “official” ones. You’ll have to be patient, it takes a bit longer for the snail to get from OZ to the rest of the world.

  • Jeanie Puckett

    Hello — I’m new to InCoWriMo and am very intrigued. It saddens me to think that the art of written correspondence is becoming a thing of the past. Writing a letter is something that I’ve not done in quite awhile and I’m anxious to change that. I love to receive letters and it’s pretty safe to say that your chances of receiving letters/cards increase dramatically if you actually send letters/cards. So, I’m committing to putting pen to paper. If you are so inclined, I’d love to receive a letter at the following address . . .

    • There are quite a few groups and projects trying to stem the tide. Postcrossing for example is approaching 40 million received postcards (this excludes the postcards sent via their forum), and they’ve even featured on some countries’ stamps.

      I have a snailmail forum. http://s-mail.proboards.com/ and there are some links on there to other postal projects.

    USA

    I would love to receive a letter or 12 from whomever wishes to do so! I have taken medical retirement as a college professor of music theory & composition, and when I can break away from my TRUE life’s calling as a large dog rescuer/placer/fosterer/adopter (I presently have two Irish Wolfhounds and an Old English Sheepdog) I do my best to scratch out a tiny niche in the world of “classical” composition (preferably on commission๐Ÿ™ƒ) and sound design for, well, anybody & anything.

    My writing, whether it be musical (at the piano of course!) or correspondence, is always done on real paper with one of far too many fountain pens. I am “laid up” at the moment, having had the third (and hopefully last) of a series of spinal fusions โ€“ this last one was a doozy, encompassing four sequential lumbar vertebrae โ€“ just after Christmas, which means I cannot yet sit at the piano and compose. Therefore, I would very much like to write to (and read from) any and all willing InCoWriMo-ers during my continued convalescence.

    My pen is at the ready, and I apologize in advance for the stray dog hair that will inevitably find its way into any envelope leaving this household.

    • Perhaps someone could invent/design a vertical piano to be played while lying down?!

    • Jitka Beyond Serious

      Hello Stephen,

      I could use some large dog hair as a former Newfoundland dog owner. Can only send cat hair in return at the moment though ๐Ÿ™‚ And some thoughts on creative process of writing poems maybe – in exchange for your thoughts on music. I’m very interested in how it feels when music starts coming to existence in your mind. Hope you’ll get better soon! Jitka.

    Hello there ^_^
    Just in time! I love the snail mail and I would improve my handwriting, so, this is a perfect event!
    I started to write with pen nib only few months ago. I used more for draw and recently for my Bullet Journal.
    I’m Italian and my work is really hard: I’m mother :D. I love my country, the nature, drawing and watercolor, bullet journaling and Japanese folklore, I like photography and travelling, cooking and gardening and so much others hobbies! I never had a regular handwriting correspondence, especially with international people, so I would like to know others cultures, others places and meet people with my same interests.
    So, here my address ^_^

    Hi everybody! I am a young woman from The Netherlands. Since september of last year I have graduated for my Bachelor of Social Work, which means I now get to work with people in need of help, guidance and care. Since I have been at school ever since I started kinder-garden at 4, I now find myself with quite the amount of spare time on my hands. I am interested in all sorts of things, politics, history, health and mental health issues, reading, bulletjournaling, cooking, CATS (:D), tea etc. etc. etc.
    I’d love to receive some fun letters and postcards for this INCOWRIMO!

  • Bliss Morgan

    USA One of my resolutions this year is to send out a minimum of snail mail per week, so if you are eager to exchange more than just one letter, or okay with getting one months from now instead of merely next week, I’m totally your girl. I’m a writer, editor, and fiber artist with many fandom enthusiasms and a weakness for beautiful journals, cheap fountain pens, and a cup of coffee with a slice of homemade bread.

    I also have an ever growing collection of the most delightfully random art that people have sent me from all over the world (One of my faves right now is a photograph from Switzerland, hung up in the living room) so if you want to include a doodle or a weird painting you found at your thrift store, it will totally find a good home with me! I’m prone to including doodles and bad art of my own; I also have been honing my Circular Gallifreyan, so if you’re a Doctor Who fan, drop me a line.

    If you’re feeling particularly creative, I’m interested in the idea of setting up a series of epistolary fiction with a partner – fiction in the form of letters. I’m an avid roleplayer, and dig a bunch of different genres. If you decide you want to do this, let me know before we start, so that I’m not replying to your fictional letters as actual me. ^_^

    Be well – I look forward to hearing from you!

    Hello, since more than 10 years, I write postcards with Postcrossing, but there is a very small place to write on them, so it’s a real pleasure to write a long letter, to let the pen run on the page (almost) without a limit! I was a librarian and I like still reading but also cross stitching, knitting and writing haikus. Happy writing!

I am participating in InCoWriMo for the first time and I am really excited to see what new acquaintances might come of it.

    1) Music! The classic heavy metal ๐Ÿ™‚ Rarely, though, I’ll listen to something like Rachmaninoff and Bach. I have an electric guitar, but I cannot find the time to play lately.
    2) Science: Physics, Mathematics, and all the nice branches.
    3) Video Games: Fan of classical series like Final Fantasy, Megaman, Mario, Ninja Gaiden, Bomberman and alike. Not very fond of modern 3D games.
    4) Wines and a few spirits: I like wines. Very much. Spirits, nowadays, in cocktails with ice. Lots of ice. This place is really hot. Seriously.
    5) Coffee: Black. No milk. No cream. No sugar. Black coffee. Every morning.
    6) Go (the board game): the best game.
    7) I have a marginal interest in drawing.
    8) Cats! and dogs!
    9) A few shows on Netflix. A big fan of Steven Universe!

    This is my first InCoWriMo and am excited to see if and where I might get letters from! I will certainly quite back to anyone who writes me (of course provided the letter is in good taste). I lean toward being a tree hugger, I love crafts, herbs, work at a veterinary clinic so of course love animals, am family oriented, and a single mom of an autistic teenager. I am in awe of so many things in the world, and talented people. Would love to hear from y’all!

      Diana – I’ll put you on my list for InCoWriMo. I volunteer in the clinic at the local animal shelter, so that and pens will give me two topics for putting nib to paper.

      I must have gotten something wrong with the address. I had the letter, that I sent to you, returned. Please review and see if you can see what I did wrong https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/06084bda1899d21c98a2b5a83e911a78ece8880d00b038bd8a35f6b434535901.jpg

  • John Ellis

    Hello everyone,
    This is my first time signing up for InCoWriMo. I’m a teacher nearing retirement (okay, maybe I have a few years left before that), married, three kids. Fountain pen enthusiast (not a collector). I like to make my own stationery by experimenting with different papers, inks, and rubber stamps. I like receiving interesting stamps, but I leave them on the envelope. I enjoy being outdoors and nature photography, playing Jazz guitar, live theater, visiting museums, traveling with my family, etc.
    I would love to receive letters from around the world (including the US), and will do my best to reply to all the letters I receive, I would hope you would do the same. Feel free to write to me in Spanish, if you know it, as it would give me a chance to practice:

        Thanks!
        I’m looking forward to receiving your letter ๐Ÿ™‚ and I’ll be sure to send you a letter from Arizona in reply.

  • Already getting the envelopes and stamps ready.

    Quick things I love: tea (currently Golden Monkey, Earl Greyer, Golden Yunnan, & Darjeeling Afternoon), illustration and artwork (I love James Jean, and JH Williams III, among otheres), the theater arts, books (currently reading Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison, and I’m eagerly waiting for Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology to arrive soon), Doctor Who…

    I spend my time reading, writing, and drawing, whenever I’m not at work or school (went back to school to work on my drawing craft).

    I will write back to all letters, notes, and postcards I receive. I’ll also include artwork of some kind, in some form, with all of the letters I send.

    In your opinion, what is the limit of the pages in a letter?

    • No limit for some people. I like to get at least two sides of A5 written. Some letters are 3 or 4 pages both sides written of A4. Sometimes, only one side of A5 seems appropriate.

  • Leisa Zoeller

    Hey, guys! This is my first InCoWriMo. I looked at some of the other comments and they all say interesting things about the people there. At school, I’m just another kid. I get good grades, I do the assignments, I walk the halls, but with my spare time, I read everything, I write mostly historical fiction and contemporary fiction, and I am an aspiring sociologist. I would love to find out more about other people who love letter writing and will respond to every letter I get.

    I am 24, female, a student MFA Fiber, artist, and I have 2 cats. My interests are (to name a few): art, reading, crafts (crochet, knitting, sewing, bookmaking, etc.), WoW, fountain pens, vegan cooking, D&D, journals, and very recently houseplants. I’d love to write to anyone about any of these topics (or any other topic) and I will happily write back.

I own a few fountain pens and enjoy introducing others to the magic of filling a convertor with ink and exploring the wide world of color.

    For reasons I will go into in a letter, I am trying to get back into “old school” correspondence. I currently have 2 wonderful pen pals whom I connected with during 2016…one who introduced me to the insanely addictive world of fountain pens. I have a couple of “beginner pens” that I am anxious to do more with than write “the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog” ad nauseum in a notebook. I stumbled on InCoWriMo whilst watching YouTube videos on pens, inks, papers, and improving penmanship (which, btw, mine is legible but “unpretty”–another reason I’d like to do more correspondence).
    Basics about me…I’m a 43 year old single female with no kids. I am a case manager for elderly and disabled individuals. I enjoy reading fiction (YA—which seems WAAAAAY different than what it was when I was a young adult, true crime, general fiction, eastern philosophy), staring at the ocean (really the only surefire way to calm myself), and traveling when I can. Oh, and I ADORE NASCAR! (I will try not to bore you too much with my thoughts on that latter topic).

    Some of you who have already posted may hear from me. I hope to hear from some of you. Cheers. ๐Ÿ™‚

    What a fun idea! For years, I’ve always thought the idea of a penpal would be fun and here’s a great way to get into it! I found out about InCoWriMo through my recent diving into the world of bullet journaling and I am thrilled to get to participate this year. As for a few things about me, I’m an aspiring entrepreneur, working my way through college towards a marketing degree. I love to read, cook, bake, take pictures, and clog! Traveling is THE best time; there’s so much more of the world to explore.(My dream trip is a voyage to Antarctica.) Most of all, I love people’s stories and getting to see the world through their eyes, something I hope I really get to dig into with InCoWriMo! Fountains pens seem to be a big thing around here…I’d love to learn more! Can’t wait to hear from you!

    First InCoWriMo for me. Sparked an interest in fountain pens and improving my penmanship after started making my own pens, etc. I like woodworking, especially turning on a lathe. I carried a fountain pen many years ago and found my old Sheaffer in the original box which started a new hobby. Have bought many Jinhao and other pens. Recently bought TWSBI Eco and Pilot Metro. I am retired with grand and great grand children. I collect stamps and am a ham radio operator. If you write me, I will answer.

    Hello friends! This year is my first time doing InCoWriMo as well as starting a bullet journal (one month in!). I am a student in Washington State. I live on an island in the Puget Sound and commute into Seattle. It is a beautiful place surrounded by the ocean and nature. I live with my family and two rambunctious collies. I love to read and write, and I am training for my first half-marathon in May. I adore traveling and learning new cultures; I am fluent in French and also speak minimal German and Russian, so feel free to write me in whatever language you wish! I would love to hear all about where you live, your family, and the life you have lead so far. Let me know about your accomplishments and ambitions (no matter how big or small!). I will most definitely reply to you as soon as possible; perhaps we can exchange more than one letter during InCoWriMo.
    Looking forward to getting to know you,
    Gabi
    PS- This is somewhat random, but please tell me the story behind your name, if possible! I always like to hear about other people’s names, regardless of whether you chose it yourself or not. I also have an interesting story about mine involving Star Wars which I would be happy to share! GF

    I am a 31 year old primary school teacher with 3 kids (11-mine and 10,13 step children) and 2 dogs. I have recently starting bu.jo and am addicted already. I love reading, geocaching and trying new things. I have just started to teach myself to knit (some tips would be useful)

    Hello Everyone

    I’m happy to give you my address via e-mail if you’d like to write to me. My name is Debby and I’m in my late 40’s. I’m not currently working (long story) but I have done a variety of jobs, such as library, administration and reception. I have one husband and one cat, who is in touch with her ‘inner bitch’!

    I love watching films, whether they are science-fiction, comedy or disaster movies that are so bad they’re good! I tend to watch them at home rather than go out to the cinema. I seem to be mostly reading non-fiction at the moment, anything about sorting out your house, hygge, simple-living. Of course, it’s actually doing what they suggest that works! Still working on getting myself down to the ‘doing’ rather than the reading.

    I bullet journal and write in my journals and would really love to get down to art journaling. I am a big lover of stickers and washi tape. I do have a couple of fountain pens but being a leftie I smudge my writing big time. I haven’t written with them for a long time because in my organising of stuff I put them somewhere safe and/or obvious, along with my airmail paper and envelopes, and haven’t found them since!

    This is my first time doing InCoWriMo and there are so many interesting people to write to that I think 28 days seems too short! So, if you’re interested I can be found at renderhenge_debs at hotmail.com

  • Hello from the Florida Keys! I’ve never participated in InCoWriMo, but it sounds like a lot of fun! When my daughter was ten years old I sold items on ebay and sent letters when I shipped the buyer the item explaining where we lived and that my daughter would love to learn about their location. We received a letter back from just about everyone we mailed a letter to and my daughter loved it so much!

    My son is now at the same age and I think it would be fun for him to receive letters as well, if you feel like sending him a note, sketch, comic cartoon sketch? He’s at the age where he absolutely hates writing sometimes, but this may encourage him to write more even if it’s only a few sentences. I promise to also send you a letter as well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m hoping to connect and share with you some of the many fun and crazy things from my tropical island life. I am also a writer and book designer for an online publisher, DiaryJournalBook, so have a HUGE interest in the world of journaling and bullet journals. I’ve also designed blank comic book journals for kids and artists because I LOVE art ~ drawings, sketches, paintings, comics, etc. and would so enjoy seeing your art, which means, no words required! ๐Ÿ™‚ Perhaps I will write a poem or short story to go with the art you send me? The skies the limit!
    I’m learning a lot and looking forward to sharing the journey with you!

My greatest love is to read, especially dystopian fiction (Hunger Games, Divergent, The Knife of Never Letting Go). I also have a passion for the written word (my fiance has written a book, but it has not been published). I know that I will absolutely love everything I recieve from InCoWriMo mail and can’t wait! Thank you so much!

  • Kat

    Hi all!

    this is my first InCoWriMo. I found out about it through Wonderpens, a great fountain pen store in Toronto that I spend too much money in ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve been wanting to write more and type less, so this is perfect timing.

    I’m a brewer in Toronto, Canada. I used to be a teacher until making a major career switch a few years ago. My life is a little beer-centric (I teach it sometimes and am a beer judge), but I also knit, ride a motorcycle, write some and take too many cell phone photos. I love science fiction, potato chips, typewriters, lazing in a hammock, and exploring. I’m married, and owned by two cats. Will write back! Cheers!

    I’m married to another member and his correspondence has gotten me interested in corresponding too. I lived in Sweden for a college year abroad and wrote many letters and post cards (this was before internet, computers and cell phones). With the advent of computers and email I find I miss the act of letter writing and the thrill of a letter received in the mailbox.

    Grew up in Vermont and now live and work in Southern NH. I work with computers at a local hospital. I am an avid textile enthusiast – I weave, spin and knit and am active in my state Spinning guild. I’m looking forward to retirement (its a ways off but getting closer all the time) when I can devote even more time to my pleasure activities.

    Well… This is my first InCoWriMo. I’m an educator, father, outdoors enthusiast, bicyclist and reader. I own a few fountain pens and enjoy introducing others to the magic of filling a convertor with ink and exploring the wide world of color. If you write to me I will do my best to reply in 2017. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m happy to talk about anything with the exception of politics… Love to hear from you.

    Hello all!

    My name is Jennifer, and I currently live in San Antonio, Texas, USA. I’ve recently discovered bullet journaling, and I’ve fallen in love! Through posts on the instagram tag I discovered InConWriMo, which I think is an amazing idea, so I’ve decided to participate!

    I’m a college student, but I’m taking a semester off to sort out some stuff, so I’m just hanging out with the family right now!

    Some things I love include books, journals, knitting, crochet, watching bad reality tv while knitting or crocheting, drawing, painting, making/watching YouTube videos, hanging out with my dogs (two cocker spaniels), and obsessing over my fandoms (Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Marvel, Supernatural, and a whole bunch more. If you name it, I’ve probably seen an episode or two of it/read some of it).

    Hello Everyone!

    I hope I am not too late to be added to the list, this will be my first InCoWriMo and I am looking forward to using all of my pens as often as I can. I have only been using fountain pens for close to a year now and have stocked up of several different inks, some of which I have yet to try. I am hoping I can put a good dent on my ink bottles and samples this year and InCoWriMo seems like a great excuse to get started.
    I studied computer animation and nowadays mainly focus on 3D modeling and Sculpting. I don’t get to use pen and paper all that often anymore so I am eager to give this a try. I have already seen plenty of addresses on here I will be writing to but I was hoping to at least get one letter so that I can use it as an example. I have been seeing plenty of letters from the past that are all decorated very nicely and I hope I can at least replicate some of that talent. It has been a long while since I sent any mail so I am a bit rusty.

    My address is as follows:

      Would love to write to a fellow artist in animation! Hope you will reply ๐Ÿ™‚

        Awesome! Been scrolling through here looking for artist myself! Will certainly get back to you and will add you to my list as well! Looking forward to your letter and expect one from me soon!

    Hello World,

    InCoWriMo will be great fun for all, won’t it? I like to use a fountain pen, finding that sitting down to write a letter is like meditation. My handwriting is better than it was, but recipients of my correspondence will have some challenge. That’s a good bit of the fun, I suppose. I probably write three letters a week on average.

    I like bicycling, craft beer and jazz. My letters will also include stories about my two dogs and my volunteering at the local animal shelter where I walk dogs and recover dogs and cats in the clinic.

    Heck, that seems like I’ve written a letter, but cheated my using a keyboard. I hope to hear from others participating in InCoWriMo.

    I’ve only just stumbled on InCoWriMo. I used to have penpals all over the world as a tween/teen, but lost contact with most of them. I love snail mail, handwritten letters, and have a slight addiction to washi tapes. I have a few fountain pens I use mainly in my journal-writing, and back in the day, my handwriting was a lot nicer than it is now. I’m married with a nine-year-old son. I’m also a food blogger, and love exchanging recipes. I love to travel, though I don’t get to do it as often as I’d like. I love science-fiction, Brit-coms, The Replacements (the band, not the movie), coffee, all things plaid, and political analysis (though the current political climate is making my stomach churn). I’d love to receive your letters!

    • Megan Myburgh

      Hey Rachel! I received your letter on 9 March! I’m posting my reply within the next day or two!

    Hey everyone!
    I know I’m a little late writing here since InCoWriMo starts in two days, but if anyone still needs someone to write to here’s a bit about me.
    I’m 20 years old and I just started studying history in university. I finished my military service only in November last year so getting used to the civilian life is still very much a work in progress. I consider myself to be open-minded and friendly, although I can be extremely shy sometimes. I love a good adventure, but I also enjoy the comfort of my home way too much sometimes. I’m also the type of person to get easily exited about a lot of things, and now this challenge has me completely pumped up!
    I’m not especially sporty, but I do sail in the summer and snowboard in the winter. I have a long list of interests that just keeps getting longer, but to mention a few: hand lettering, bullet journal, stationery, books and reading (fantasy mostly), nature, travelling, games and movies and TV. I promise I’ll reply to every single letter I get, I hope to find some long term pen pals too! Can’t wait to hear from all of you, happy writing!

    Hi everybody,

    It’s a first for me! With all the social media stuff going on, I somehow feel an urge to get back to “reality”. I remember having loads of pen pals when I was a kid, before internet exploded and I loved recieving those letters and keeping them in my souvenir box. What a great idea to go back to that feeling of joy when opening an envelope and discovering a new piece of somebodys life!
    To tell you a bit about me; I’m a mother of three (we are a stepfamily) and I turned 30 last October. I just started Bulletjournaling and I absolutely love it. My main interests are movies, books, music (especially rock and heavy metal), travelling and meeting new people.
    I was born in Germany, raised in England and Switzerland and now live in France!
    I have a special job to as a funeral counselar.
    That’s about it ๐Ÿ™‚
    I really hope to have a few letters to read soon and I promise to write back
    Lots of fun to all those participating
    love from France
    Lisa

    • Emma Stafford

    • I opened up your BEAUTIFUL letter! I don’t know if there’s a rule about talking about a letter outside the actual letter, but I must say I am thrilled and flattered to have received your letter ๐Ÿ™‚ It really made me smile. But I’ll respond ASAP.

      • Lisa Pattison

        Hi Francis,
        You just made my day ๐Ÿ˜Š I wasn’t sure my letter would arrive! I’m glad it made you smile and I’m eager to get your snail mail response. Wishing you a beautiful day and lots of joy. Lisa

    I’ve never done InCoWriMo before and I’m super excited to be participating this year. Love to receive real mail in my letterbox, instead of just bills and junk mail. I was a big letter writer as a teenager – lots of family living overseas and a huge list of penfriends.
    I’m from Australia, on the west coast. I’m a librarian by day and fiction writer by night (and any other time I can squeeze in ten minutes). I love books and notebooks and journals and pens – I have a bit of a stationery fetish!
    If anyone wants to drop me a line or two, I promise to reply!

    I love to cook. I love to gather my friends together at my home and play board or card games, eat a big dinner then watch movies. I love to learn new recipes and then modify them to my own taste if necessary. Right now, Iโ€™m really into Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and Indian foods. Mexican and Polish cuisines are also among my favorites.

    I journal a lot. I am a very emotional person and I have to get how I feel out on paper or I feel like I will explode. I am also an avid maker of lists.

    Researching true crime is a passion of mine. I have a great need to learn as much as I can about unsolved cases so that maybe, however slim the odds, I can help solve a crime and help a family.

    I love to take photography. I love when I can catch the emotion of that perfect, once in a lifetime moment. Photography is a great form of stress relief and reduces anxiety in me like no medication I’ve ever tried.

    I have an affinity for all things Nordic / Scandinavian. In doing genealogy research, I found that I come from a long line of strong Nordic women and it makes me so proud that my ancestors that fought for what they wanted and believed in, both the men and the women equally.

    I am a medieval re-creationist. I am a member of a group called The Society for Creative Anachronism (The SCA) http://www.SCA.org We learn all the medieval skills that one would have learned while living in the medieval times. If civilization were to collapse, the people of the SCA could easily band together and survive easily.

    I am learning about herbalism so that one day I can have an apothecary and be able to sell healthy, natural, and safe medicinal products to people to heal themselves holistically.

    I love haunted and abandoned buildings. I love to visit them and research them. I especially love the history of asylums and places where groups of people lived and where families thrived. There is so much energy in those places.

    Intelligence. I am rather intelligent and like to have the people I associate with be intelligent as well. I don’t mean that you have to be the smartest person in the world, I give everyone a chance. But I can not handle people who are stupid. There is a HUGE difference between ignorance and sheer stupidity. I can tolerate some ignorance, (SOME) but stupidity is absolutely not tolerable.

    Honesty is a must. I am absolutely honest and I expect those around me to be the same. If I have pepper in my teeth, tell me. If my outfit is hideous, tell me. If I become rude or overbearing, Tell me. I would do the same for you.

    Tell me the view from your window. Tell me a secret. What is your favorite quote, lyric, book excerpt, etcetera? What is the strangest / most dangerous / most fun thing you’ve ever done? Tell me about your first kiss. What is / was your favorite children’s book? If you could choose them, what would your last words be? Whose underwear would you not mind wearing? What song would you like to listen to right now?

    I think you get it.

    Write to me if you want a letter with a good amount of personality, sarcasm, humor, and heart.

    You can write in any language, but if you write in anything other than English, please include an English translation.

    Well, That’s me…

    Au Revoir!

    Hello~

    I still remember a time where social media was looking up a list of names of strangers to write to and “texting” was exchanging carefully folded written notes at the end of a class day.

    I am here because I love writing and receiving letters, all things vintage, beautiful stationary, and more ways to spread love and positivity. I believe in random acts of kindness and love hearing stories from strangers.

    I enjoy traveling, philosophy, poetry, oddities, and all things curious ๐Ÿ™‚

    Looking forward to many magical encounters.

    Hello!
    This will be my second year participating in InCoWriMo and I am so glad February 1st is just around the corner!
    I have always loved to write and receive letters but with the popularity of the more instant forms of communication such as email and text messaging – which have their place – I really miss the excitement of receiving a letter in the mail.
    Briefly: Married; mother of three amazing adult children, Winston, the wonder dog, and Kato the tuxedo cat. Life-long learner with a love for the written word; it is not unusual for a well crafted poem or sentence to move me to tears. I live right next to the ocean and am inspired daily by the beauty that surrounds me. I enjoy all manner of creative endeavor, with writing, painting, knitting, and card-making topping the list. I’m also a bit of a planner/organizer nut.
    I look forward to hearing from anyone who cares to write. I will reply.

    Third year on InCoWriMo.
    Last year managed 20 letters before breaking my writing arm…which meant I was replying to letters well into the month of June.

    Avid Postcrosser and Penpaller.
    Recent History grad. Like many I went back to school part time.

    Though originally from Sheffield in the North of England but have lived in other countries (Canada, Republic of Ireland and South Africa) too. But for the last 4 years been settled here in Northern Ireland. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel to many more, within Africa, Europe and the Middle East. I’ve also visited the East Coast of the USA but long to travel further West and reach California and Alaska eventually.

    One day I would love to do a reverse round the world trip – ie West to East.

    Letters and postcards always appreciated-even outside InCoWriMo though it may take me a while to reply.

    • Anthony Grimm

      sorry to hear about the wing last year. Hope things are mended now.

      • Ben Freeman

        Everything’s healed well now. Though my arm and wrist in cast for nearly 3 months there was a stack of around 70 letters to either complete and send or to reply to….at least my arm didn’t need physiotherapy-it got it from writing all those letters ๐Ÿค“

    I have worked in the print industry for over 20 years doing digital pre-press and spend day after day in front of a computer sending and receiving emails and only actually buy stamps at Christmas when I send out my cards. As a young girl I would get a package of writing paper for Christmas so that I could write my thank you letters but have not had any for years as most my correspondence is now done digitally. With International Writing month it is an opportunity to start writing letter once more and I am looking forward to it!

    Hi everyone, this is my first year participating in InCoWriMo and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m an Artist in Chicago and have always loved sending out hand made postcards to friends, family, and people to who make an impact on my life. I love that I stumbled upon InCoWriMo just in time to participate but, I have to be honest and say I’m a bit nervous being a newbie. If anyone would like to write me I’d love to hear from all. I’m a new wife and mother of a beautiful 2 yr old girl, Peyton. I love all things art related, I’ve got a bit of a pen fetish and am lost without my bullet journal/happy planner. I work at Michaels Arts and Crafts as a Custom Framing Manager and LOVE my job. I can’t wait to send out my first postcard and would love to hear from any and all who wish to and promise to reply to all that do. Happy InCoWriMo!

    Hello to all of you!
    There were times when I had many penpals and there was a letter in my mailbox almost every day. Of course I was spending quite some time writing letters every day as well. Then few things happened that were more important than letter writing. Except for bills and occasional greeting cards thereโ€™s not much else in my mailbox these days. Writing letters as well as receiving them is something I really miss โ€“ and Iโ€™m really glad to see that there are still so many people who like to sit down and write a letter, lick a stamp and mail it – not by clicking โ€œSendโ€, but actually walking to a mailbox or even going to a post office. That gives me hope I may find few new no-typing penpals again! Iโ€™m 47, one daughter and one boyfriend/partner, one dog and one fish tank… I love everything crafty, especially polymer clay and jewelry making, scrapbooking, mixed media, art journals, painting. Beside that I love learning new thigns, reading, Gimp, Angry birds, baking, exchanging recipes, watching good movies and series… Iโ€™d like to learn about you, about your loved ones, about everything thatโ€™s going on in your life, about your likes, dislikes, and become your friend / or just exchange one or more mailarts.
    I’m looking forward to participating in InCoWriMo, I have my pens and papers ready! ๐Ÿ™‚

    suggestions…

    * movies

    * books, books and books
    * nature writing

    * tattoos

    * pin-up girls

    * tv series

    * travel

    * (fountain) pens, journal and notebooks

    * stationary

    * postcards

    * vynils
    * and a lot of other things.

    Hello,
    I just happened upon InCoWriMo and thought it was a fantastic idea! I’m 18 years old and in my final year of highschool. I live in Toronto, Canada and am hoping to move to France in a few years time. I love to travel and am planning to travel more this year. I am interested in a future career in fashion and writing. I love animals and have a dog. Here is a list of a few of the things I LOVE; Cats, a hot cup of tea, Wes Anderson films, British murder mystery shows, Comedys, France!!, creating art, bullet journaling, fashion magazines, fashion and landscape Photography, the 60s, Fashion, Writing, music (ie. david bowie, the kinks, the doors, the last shadow puppets etc.). I am slightly worried about sharing my address online, so if you would be so kind as to exchange your address with me via email ( cjwstar1@hotmail.com ) and we can start exchanging letters! Looking for possible long-term penpals, but am ok with short-term aswell. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    No time, or money, to travel, so this seems like a wonderful way to meet people from around the world. And a great way to keep my penmanship from getting worse! I teach botany, dye fibers with natural materials, knit a lot, and read–mostly natural history and science–and do a bit of weaving and sewing. I am interested in almost everything, especially arts and science. Send me a letter–I will answer.

    Hi,
    I just found out about this brilliant campaign and I hope it’s not too late. I’m a male computer science student from Germany and I have never in my life received a handwritten letter (or send anything hand written larger than a postcard)! So if you still have some space in your planning calendar I would love to get some mail. I’m a huge fountain pen nerd and somewhat interested in calligraphy (maybe because my own handwriting is sadly lacking), so like-minded people are especially invited.

    Hope to receive my first letter soon!

    I’m a writer who works in banking, a political scientist finding renewed conviction, proud human to an enthusiastic Belgian Malinois mix, and an adventurer of otherwise mundane excursions including but not limited to trying new things, New Restaurant Sunday, and, “ooh, I wonder where that road goes…”

    I’m teaching myself how to knit from a book with somewhat mixed results; I collect unglazed white bisque pieces (I have a gnome who guards my bookshelf from the nefarious hedgehog king on the nightstand across the room), and I have a thing for foxes, polar bears, and elephants; and this fall I’m going back to school to study civil engineering and urban planning because I have this daydream about high speed rail and smart roads revolutionizing travel in the 21st century.

    I get that all of this makes me sound a little bit insane (and possibly like like interests stopped developing at about the age of fifteen), but it’s really very entertaining to watch.

    You can find me across social media at username flyingleaps, or just drop me a line. Can’t wait to hear from you!

    I’m a writer and dreamer who has insane ideas about being a book blogger (even though my attention keeps wandering lately) and a jeweler. I’m into bullet journaling lately, so stickers and washi tape rule my life.

    I’m a nerd, not of the highest caliber, but I’m just starting to wander into Dungeons & Dragons and I run an organization in my neck of the woods for all like-minded individuals. I love games and talking about the latest movies and games out there. It’s fun to figure out how to plan events (I used to want to be an event planner but I think this has cured me of that desire).

    I can’t wait to hear from people, talking about whatever! Please don’t be shy, I love hopefully making new friends from all over!

I write pages of journalling everyday, love my bullet journal maybe a bit too much, and have just gotten into collecting fountain pens. I’m an avid reader and have a degree in literature and have a particular love for scifi and fantasy. I am a Dungeon Master for my local D&D group. In general: All kinds of nerdy.

    Letter writers of the world! I have a favor to ask on behalf of a friend.

    My long-time penpal Marie has been ill for a very long time, going on 4 years. She has not been able to get out of bed for several months. She isn’t able to use her computer, but does read the letters that she receives. To have her receive letters from around the world would be amazing, as she’s becoming very lonely. Won’t you please send her a cheerful hello? I think she would love to hear about things you’re up to, poems and stories you’ve read and have liked, and other little bits of life. Mention that Colette shared her address with you, otherwise she may wonder how so many people know how to reach her.

    I have never done InCoWriMo! This is exciting for me! I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere USA so this is a great way for me to meet new people! I have a few penpals/postcard buddies but getting to know like minded people is absolutely wonderful!

    I’m a nerd at heart (love Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, Walking Dead, Firefly, etc etc), I love journaling and have more fountain pens/inks than I am willing to admit! I’m also an avid reader and one of my goals for 2017 is to read 52 books! I’m 11 books in to the challenge already.

    I will reply to every letter I get! I also use a lovely wax seal that is sometimes sacrificed to the postal Gods, but it is the thought that counts, right?

    Hey, everyone!

    I’m a second year student of Swedish filology in Warsaw. I just got into bullet journaling this year and one of the blogs I follow featured a InCoWriMo post so here I am. I’ve always loved to write, I’ve been keeping journals since I was 10 and I think InCoWriMo is an amazing way of spreading the handwritten word again.

    I’m a lover of vintage clothing and accesories, everything Harry Potter (Hufflepuffs unite!) or Doctor Who, dogs and old-timey crafts like embroidery or rug weaving. I’m just enjoying the simple life, ya know? :>

    • Kymbrlye โ€œCreme Bruleeโ€ Feldma

    Well, I should probably give you some clues as to who I am. I left higher education to pursue a career as a street dance teacher. I’m a fountain pen, ink, stationery and art addict and recently got back into letter writing to close friends. I’m interested in all things performing, musical, sci-fi, reading, gaming and much more. If you send me a letter, postcard, poem, or anything written, I only ask one question of you: “What is your favourite memory?”

  • Paula Priebe

    Hi everyone. How did I not know InCoWriMo was a thing before this year?! Well, better late than never.

    In the spirit of the International part of the idea, I’m hoping to write to a few new people over the month (probably taken from this list), and hope to get a few surprise letters myself. With that in mind, if you’re still looking for new people to write to, I’m Paula. Late 20s, live in Wisconsin, USA. I am an urban planner by trade. I enjoy travelling, but haven’t done as much as I’d like (spent time outside the US in South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Turkey, the UK, and Ireland). My hobbies include crafting (crocheting, jewelry-making, stamp carving, card-making, etc.), jigsaw puzzles, board games, and visiting new parks. I do CrossFit, but not well. And I love snail-mail!

    Just found out about InCoWriMo last month and I’m ready to go. I’ll be using this list for the most part simply because I think it will be great fun. I hope to get a few surprises myself.

    As for me, I live in a little wooded cocoon with a llama and two cats. I love to read, crochet, play cribbage, hike, enjoy the quiet company of friends, and watch birds.

    Hi There,
    This is my first InCoWriMo and I am a little nervous. My daughter is doing it with me also. I can’t write pretty or draw–not an artistic bone in my body. I am left handed and just bought my first fountain pen. I am married with 3 kids.
    I love genealogy, technology, reading, crocheting, cooking (Thats my job!!), animals (cats,dogs, horses, birds, snakes).
    I want to travel but that is not an option right now.

    I would love to here from somebody. I will write back.

    Hello dear friends-to-be!

    I’d love to recieve some lettersfrom all over the world. I have already started to write some letters to some of the other commentors as well, hoping I will gain some pen pals.

    I’m currently a student, majoring in archaeology. Besides my love for history, I’m also very fond of every- and anything nature related. I love growing plants and taking walks and hikes trough the forest, I love going to the beaches and listen to the waves crashing into the shore. I love watching animals, living in the wild and in big (meaning spacious) zoos.
    I also really love space, books, journaling, fiction and science-fiction, some comics, MCU, fantasy and mythical creatures, folklore and many many things else.
    I’m currently teaching myself how to brush letter, so you can expect some crooked attempts of that from me as well.

    Now, I’m not very comfortable at putting my address out into the internet, but please, please sent me a short email to ‘sleepyhat[at]gmx.de’ and I’ll mail it to you. You don’t have to write anything, just put incowrimo in there. Thank you, and I’m looking forward to our new friendship!
    Oh, by the way, I live in Germany.

    • Kymbrlye โ€œCreme Bruleeโ€ Feldma

      Oh my goodness, we HAVE to talk… I’m going to email you right now… ๐Ÿ˜€

      Please, do sent me a mail.
      Only 4 people have done so so far, and I’m a bit sad about it. I love to recieve letters from actual people! Also, seeing that only so few people have asked for my address so far, you’re definitely getting a reply from me!

    • Mara

      Hi Katharina! Sent you an email.
      I’m adding you to my list. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I did LetterMo last year, but I like InCoWriMo better! I’m a writing tutor/editor at a local university. I am a huge bookworm. My favorite genres are urban fantasy, paranormal romance, sci-fi, “regular” fantasy, and I’ve been branching out into non-fiction lately. I’m a cat person, have 5 tattoos, and a couple of piercings. I’m a lifelong vegetarian. I’m a crafting junkie, and have way too many craft supplies in general. I knit, crochet, sew, and do paper crafts. I love to travel, but I’m too poor to go the places I really want to visit. I love learning new things and having new experiences–I try to find at least 5 each year.

    InCoWriMo came just in the right time for me! I’ve been longing for someone to write for quite sometime now, but couldn’t find a penpal’s network anywhere!

    Hi everyone!
    This is my first InCoWriMo, and though I already have several pen pals, I am SO EXCITED. I am 32 years old, and work as a freelance manuscript consultant/starving freelance writer. I love writing in all forms, everything from letters and daily journalling/bullet journalling, to poetry and novels (NaNoWriMo is my life’s passion). I read a lot; have a degree in literature; like sci-fi and fantasy the best, in both books and movies, but will devour almost anything; have recently gotten into the fountain pen-hobby; am a Dungeon Master for my local D&D group; and am mostly fueled by coffee.
    I will respond to any and all letters I get, and I’m going to sit down right now and get started!

    • Jitka Beyond Serious

      Hello Eirin,

      writing in all forms is my passion too. I guess we might have some subjects to discuss – so you can expect a letter from Czech poet & copywriter ๐Ÿ™‚ Cheers, Jitka.

    First time Incowrimo-er!

    Recently got back into the letter writing game, mostly because I’m terrible at email, and I like tactile experiences.

    I’m a lover of food, food stories, food history & culture. Tell me what you like to eat! I have a interest in chinatown and chinese diaspora (and their food histories!).

    I live with my boyfriend and our grumpy cat. I’m a jack of all trades, master of none. I like crosswords, trivia, bad tattoos, knitting, interesting postage stamps, fountain pens, corn based snacks, intersectional womanism, pretending to understand wine, podcasts, skill sharing, and produce box art.

    This would be my first time joining InCoWriMo and I’m excited already!

    Since it’s already February 1 here, I’ve send one to one of my best friends. To be honest, there are still 6 empty slots on my list. If you’re interested to receive one from random stranger, kindly please drop your address.

    I also would like to receive one from you amazing people! ๐Ÿ˜€ My address is:

    A little about me: love football/soccer and basketballs (and photography), obsessed with red and purple, stationary (planners, washi tapes, and the writing tools themselves), dreaming of releasing my own novels, travelling all around the world. I love to learn new language and culture; and knowing new people!

    I can’t promise much but I’m trying to reply all the letters I receive. Until then, have fun writing!

    Hello ,
    I’m really excited to partecipate in InCoWriMo! I enjoyed something similar when I was yang ( about 13) and I still write every month a letter with two of my penfriends…I live in a Roman city called Treviso that is very close to Venice. I can’t wait to receive your letters.

  • Oh my time ran away I kept meaning to get over here and signed up. *facepalm*

    My name is Cj, I’ve been doing some sort of snail mail, penpaling, random acts of letters, write it forward for as long as I can remember. I adore it. Nothing like a letter or post card or “just because” arriving in one’s mailbox. It is a gorgeous way of getting to know someone, to connecting, to lifting the spirit of another, to bring a smile. I have all my letters saved tied up in a bow.

    I’m a obsessed planner, stationery, knitting, mixed media crafty/maker – A ‘jill of all trades master of none” *laughing*
    Kindness matters, music rules, laughter is like breathing, books & movies a favorite escapism. I also became a emptynester plus recently disabled almost simulatenously!! The emptynester part was harder! 5! Count email 5 living out their journeys :). Yup, that makes me 52, So Cal gal born and raised, transplanted to the suburbanish country of NY. I’ve had the best of both sides of the US. If you live internationally and have come here to shop, bus from NYC to a massive upscale outdoor premium shopping center -you’ve been in my neck of the woods.

    If interested in writing, I know I’m literally at the very last minute – HOLLA! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Would adore corresponding with you, maybe make a friend, lift some spirits, find new penpals. Mostly connect and keep alive a vintage tradition; correspondence – putting pen to paper to talk.

    Hope this finds you well.

    Hey there you lovely people! It’s my first time joining the fun, and I’m all excited about sending letters (and eventually receiving a few myself, ahah!)
    I’m a huge writing/reading addict, and a bullet journalist as well, but I suck at drawing so if you see doodles that don’t quite look right, they’re probably from me. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    As for a “few things about me”, here we go: I’m a photograph, I’m a huge cat lover, I looove anything colorful, but also cars, trucks, music, movies (die-hard Lord of the Rings, Cloud Atlas & Star Wars fan here), tv shows, mountains, nature in general, zen stuff, glitters, red pandas, asian related stuff, the russian language, and saying the word ‘stuff’. As for my favorite color, it’s green! (any kind of green, really.)
    (I have a ton more things to say, but I actually don’t know what’s relevant and what’s not. So, take your pick!)

    One last thing I have to say, is that I am genderfluid, therefore I don’t really consider myself boy or girl. That being said, you may write to me as a ‘she’ or a ‘he’, but I’d rather be talked to as a neutral gendered person? If that’s okay. ๐Ÿ™‚ (and feel free to tell me too if you have a preferred gender/pronoun!)

    Here we go, don’t be afraid of leaving me your addresses! I’m looking forward to all that mailing stuff! I’ll always reply! ;D

    • Lea Wood

      I would love to write to you! I hope you can write me back if you’re not too busy. Also do you use a title like Mx in the place of Mr or Mrs? I like the title the receivers of my letters, if not that’s cool I’ll just use the name you’ve provided.

      • MacDyE

        I’ll write back to everybody, even if I have to do it after InCoWriMo, so don’t worry ๐Ÿ˜‰ I don’t really have a title since there is no neutral title in french, but the Mx one is perfect! Feel free to use it! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Just like most here, I’m a sucker for snailmail, stationery, pens (ESPECIALLY FOUNTAIN PENS), planners, etc! I’ve been a member of Postcrossing for a few years now, but this is my first Correspondence Month. I’m looking forward to the challenge, and hopefully, snailmail!
    Happy Penning!!

    Hi all I just found out about this and am incredibly excited to write some letters to everyone! I’m an old soul and feel that the art of handwriting is slowly dying and it’s such a shame! I still have letters from my grandparents when they were young that I cherish because it’s such a lost art in today’s crazy world!!! I love all things crafty and creativ! I think it’s so important to be able to make things to give to people! I look forward to meeting new people and becoming penpals!

  • Ria Cabral

    Hi All,

    Iโ€™m Ria . I am a genealogist, a photo enthusiast, I take pictures of cemeteries and document the headstones. Naturally any postcards showing cemeteries and headstones are of interest.

    My love of Genealogy follows me everyday and I am always working on my family tree.
    have you discovered the exhilarating and slightly addictive nature of ancestor hunting?
    Write and tell me please about your findings on your ancestors and family history.
    The mystery never ends, because there is no end to the amount of time you can potentially go back in history with your family research. Yet, the more you can discover, the more complete picture of your family you can put together. Itโ€™s insanely rewarding, and the more you do it, the more you will want to do it. Thatโ€™s a given.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Happy Mail days.

    love Ria

    I sent my first letter off today… exciting! My name and address are already out there on the internet, so no harm in putting it out there again… I love to receive hand written letters, but my friends do not like to send them, and rarely respond at all, let alone on paper. I will send as many letters as I possibly can and respond to every one I receive. Thanks in advance!
    Oh, btw – I enjoy reading, journalling, photography, drawling mandalas and learning zentangling.

    Hello everyone! I heard about InCoWriMo from a friend and it is right up my street. My boyfriend rolls his eyes as I stop at every postcard stand at home or on holiday and how lovely to have more willing victims of my ramblings!

    I currently live in Vancouver BC, but am originally from England. I made the trip across the pond in September and love it here so much. I adore travel, reading and crafts. I can be a nosy so and so and love to know where is your favourite place in the world? What is your best childhood memory? Guilty pleasure?

    I am so looking forwards to buying more stationary with this challenge an excellent excuse! Who knows, maybe a lasting pen pal friendship can be born ๐Ÿ™‚ Feel free to ask any questions about England (no I don’t know the Queen ;p ) or what it feels like to emigrate with just a suitcase in one hand, and my boyfriend’s hand in the other!

    Can’t wait to hear from you!

    Hey Everyone!

    Iโ€™ve been obsessed with letter writing, calligraphy, and beautiful handwriting for as long as I can remember, but no one seems to write letters anymore, or they respond with text/email. So excited to have found this!! I promise to write back as quickly as possible!

    Iโ€™m an accountant in a law firm, an avid bookworm (but donโ€™t ask me to name my favorite!), lover of all things outdoorsy, choir member, dabbling capsule wardrobe-ist, constantly trying to diy the oddest things, and endlessly curious about anything, everything, and everyone.

    • Did you have a correspondence with her?

      • Karen WyzWmn Brown

        when she was alive – she passed many years ago but the lesson stays

        • Do you still have the letters?

          • Karen WyzWmn Brown

            somewhere – I just moved so I’m not sure where they are at the moment – my favorite is the last letter she wrote after she had a stroke – she was paralyzed on the left side so when she wrote the letter she only wrote on the left side of the page – my aunt was her nurse and she said it was quite common for stoke patients to not see the side of the page that her stroke affected.

  • Just a note to share I’ve printed off the below list as of now — to make sure I have the most recent listing and will be making my way through it. I’m striving to write a LOT of letters with #InCoWriMo. Doing all this while continuing to write daily blog post encouraging old-style correspondence letter writing!
    I’ll be sure to circle back for posts added afterwards to print off in the future next few days.

    • You’ve been busy then!

      I’m procrastinating – looking at letter openers – came across a Zelda one, as I look for my boring opener to open today’s post! I do have one letter almost finished but will miss tonight’s collection.

I used to do pen paling but when all my moving around i lost everyone’s address. I am a junior in college, majoring in film making. I love Star Wars, cats, coffee and food. That’s really all there is to me. I can’t promise i’ll reply to international letters but if i get one i will try to. But I promise that every other letter I will reply to.

    Hello all!

    I’m a relatively new fountain pen user and just starting to learn brush script. I’ve always had a love for stationary though so I think it was only a matter of time. I like to dabble in all sorts of crafts. Drawing, watercolors, knitting, crocheting, making jewelry, sewing, soap making just to name a few. I love working with my hands and learning. I love to cook and try new recipes. I like to workout: lift, run, yoga, go ultralight camping, hiking and just recently gotten into pole dancing as a workout. (It’s really hard!) I love to travel and just recently went to Scotland, London and Paris.

    I’m 32 years old, newly engaged, and live in Green Bay WI. I have one 9lb fluffy white pup. I would love to hear from people all over the world! Tell me about what life is like where you live. What are popular traditions, what’s in style or trending? Or just about your day, what you like, I’m open to anything! I would really love to write to someone from Japan. It’s next on my list of places to travel. Although I told my fiancรฉe we could go to Iceland next.

    Looking forward to writing and receiving your letters!
    Cheers!

  • Hello there everyone! My name in Jeff and I’m from Pennsylvania in the USA. I have never participated in inCoWriMo before as this is the first year I’ve heard of it, but I think it is a great idea and I’m excited to send and hopefully get some letters.
    I am 31 years old and currently in school for a Associate in network administration. I love technology and computers but I also love history and vintage items, particularly fountain pens. I love using fountain pens and I also restore and repair them. I like talking about pretty much anything, except politics really.

    Hope to here from someone and hopefully even make a new penpal or a few even.

    Delighted to be joining for the first time. Anything that gets me using my fountain pen and being able to correspond with interesting people is wonderful. I run my own business (making greyhound coats) – other than that I have wide interests, including music, reading (anything between Agatha Christie and The Economist), and quilting. I’m a pretty typical Myers Briggs INTJ if that helps. I’m looking forward to this month of adventure very much.

  • And so the first day of February is over for me. Posted two letters, wrote two for posting on day 2 (both going to the same state in Australia – about 50 miles apart) – still yet to choose postage.

    Goodnight all you snailmailers out there. Be good!

    • Sera

      I’m on written one, posted one at the moment. Have another trip to the Post Office scheduled for my lunch break today. Then straight to Paperchase because obviously I don’t have enough paper…!

      • Waterstones might have Rhodia and Clairefontaine. Garden centres might have writing sets but the paper feels more like thin card. I always make sure I have plenty of paper- more than two a4-shoebox fulls! But then, I still might not have enough, what if I can only make it to the post box (or to the door to hand the postie my outgoing)….

        • Sera

          Aargh text and tone! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I actually have plenty of paper. Not quite more than I will use in a lifetime but I probably had enough to see me through this project without buying more. I still bought more though.

          What is it with envelopes though? Why do sets always have so many?

          • I know… All those envelopes left over… Still semi-useful. The ones in the sets The Works did seemed a millimetre too small for the paper (tight fit). I might just put some of the gaudier paper/envelopes for recycling (or use them for to-do-lists), and make room for nicer designs.

    This is my first year doing this so I’m pretty excited. I’ve already got a few people to send letters to but not enough to fill the whole month. None of my friends quite get why writing letters is fun to me. Yeah you can pick up a phone or send a text but its the fact that you took the time to sit down, collect your thoughts and put ink on a paper that makes it special and meaningful. I’ll do my best to respond to any and all letters, notes, bar napkins, scraps, post-it notes, or whatever else you decide to write or draw on. I like to draw a lot in my letters so don’t be shocked to get a few words and a big doodle. Better yet let me know what cartoons/anime/comics you’re into and I can try to work something into my response! OR EVEN BETTER I’ve got UV ink so if you want a super secret James Bond spy letter I can even do that but you’ll need a black light for that. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Do you mind writing someone who has no artistic talent whatsoever? I love to get other people’s scribbles, but I’m mostly a stick figure kind of girl.

      • Kevin Roman

        Sure! Everyone has artistic talent though. Like penmanship, it just takes time and practice. You draw me something and I’ll draw you something ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Anthony Grimm

      letter on the way

    • Lea Wood

      I’ll write to you!

    • Doodles are awesome! I agree, no one around me seems to think writing by hand is either practical or artistic. I would that UV ink, just need the proper light

  • Jackie K

    Hooray! Glad I found out about this just in the nick of time! Got a letter and a package sent out today and picked up keys to my new PO Box along with some awesome Wonder Woman stamps ๐Ÿ™‚ I also bought a new Lamy Al-Star and ink because it seemed like today I at least had a good excuse.
    I have plenty of hobbies and interests such as fountain pens, knitting, crochet, quilting, rubber stamping, sewing clothes, glassblowing, wood turning, gardening, and being a terrible ukulele player. If you wanna write about any of these things or share something new with me please do!

      Glassblowing, cool! I’ve been to Blenko Glass in WVa to watch them, and the college near where I lived in Kentucky used to be very well-known for glassblowing.

        I follow Blenko on fB!

          Now I’m going to have to go do that!

      This is opening up a whole new world to me. I have always loved stationary and snail mail. But now I need to I’m learning about and need to go shopping for fountain pens and special stamps not just what the post office give me. Love it.

    Hi I’m an animation student from the UK. I love writing, reading, drawing and anything to do with the arts really! I figure since I’m still moving accommodation every year it would be pretty safe to put my current address out just for a little challenge like this. I really love receiving mail and would be honoured to receive anything correspondence during this month. I’ll be trying to use different paper and a different pen for every letter and also include a little short story with every note I send! If you’d like to send me something my address is:

    Hello !
    I’m an art student from France and this is the first time I join IncoWriMo ! When I was younger, I had a penpal from England, and writing to her was so exciting !! I rarely send handwritten letters since I have no one to write to… So here is my chance right ?
    In short, I am a young woman who loves drawing, writing, acting, crafting, reading… I love learning new skills and hearing the stories people have to tell !! If you write to me, don’t hesitate to tell me all the funny, sad, incredible, fascinating things that have happening to you ! I promise I will answer all of the letters I’ll receive โ™ฅ (and I’ll do my best with my english !!) Merci ~

I look forward to retirement in the near future. I love to write letters and really miss this loss art. I was so excited to find this opportunity to both write letters (especially with my favorite fountain pens and inks) and meet interesting individuals around the world. If you choose to write to me I will do my best to answer every one.

    Hi everyone,

    I just came across this post and think it’s a wonderful way to meet new people and am excited to be a part of it! To tell you a little about myself, my name is Bert and I live in Chicago, IL with my wonderful husband (we’ve been married for a little over a year now) and our little Pug Sophie. I’m 40 years old and in graduate school getting my masters in mental health counseling. After fifteen years of working in corporate marketing I decided I wanted to make a change and actually do something professionally that meant something to me and would be be meaningful and so back to graduate school I went at thirty-nine. I’ve loved it and will be finishing up my program this June and re-entering the work force in my new field.

    For fun, I enjoy travel (we are looking at going to Iceland this year), reading and movies (sci-fi, fantasy and horror), theater, architecture, graphic design, board and video games, cooking (getting better) and of course fountain pens, pencils and stationary.

    I look forward to hearing from all of you and thanks!

    Bert

    • @bertfox:disqus Go Cubs Go! Thank you for introducing yourself. I will write to you.

    • Charlotte

      Hi Bert. It’s nice to meet you. I look forward to writing you.

  • How’s it going so far? Managing OK? Don’t let it overwhelm you – letterwriting is supposed to be enjoyable, on the most part.

    • Day 1: hand wrote and mailed 5 letters [3 U.S.; 2 International];
      Day 2 (today): hand wrote and mailed 5 letters [3 U.S.; 2 International].

    • Anthony Grimm

      Five letters in

    • Ben Freeman

      2 days in 5 letters written
      4 sent.
      1 prepped for posting today.
      2 half written

      Feeling good and on top of it all….despite working 8 till 7 all week.

    • Eirin Dahl

      3 written, all getting sent today. Will write today’s letter after journalling.

    • Kreuzn

      Three letters written, two of which I’ll post tomorrow along with the fourth. Super excited to be participating.
      It was lovely to sit down, and write a letter. I cannot recall the last time I wrote a letter. I think it may have been a few years ago, when my Nana was still alive.
      I’m hopeful I’ll receive a letter or two back ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Sera

      Four written and posted. 1 UK, 2 USA, 1 Canada. I’ve got a quiet weekend ahead so hopefully getting the next few done will be relatively easy.

      Although it is the start of the Six Nations this weekend…

    • ^^ I sorta… Prestarted with several, so I didn’t overwhelm myself. Now, I’ve got well over 28 people to write too and I can’t seem to stay away from this page. ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Dayna

      I know it’s only day 3 but I am surprised that I’ve been able to manage my one-a-day-sitting-at-my-desk-with-no-technology-on-letter-writing goal and still do all of the other stuff that I normally do. I wasn’t even sure I could do two days in a row. It’s also been a very nice way to wind down after grueling days at work.

    • Going pretty good! Weekdays are harder to manage but I think the weekend will make up for it.

    • Jitka Beyond Serious

      — it’s such a pleasant experience that one can hardly feel overwhelmed in a bad way. Overwhelmed in a good way? That may be ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Deb Smith

    Hi. I don’t know if it’s to late to join the party. I’ve written 3 letter so far, but have been nervous about putting my own self out there. One of my goals this year is to be more confident in myself. I’m a freelance Graphic Artist/Designer and work from home. It’s easy to do work for others when they can say yay or nay about something I do, but it’s not so easy for me to put my own ideas and pieces of work out to the world. Going to overcome that fear and send artwork to anyone who wants to correspond with me.

        Hi Camille, just saw your reply. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will for sure write to you. My printer is not working correctly and everything is printing horribly. I’m really bummed. I’m buying a new printer with return funds so hopefully that’ll happen next week. THEN, I’m back in business with printing my art. You can go look at some of my art work online at https://studiofour4.com/. The webpage is a work in progress like most websites, I guess, but there are some of my illustrations and graphics up. Excited to hear from you.

    Good morning, good afternoon and good evening!
    So thrilled to see InCoWriMo is back! I love writing personal letters and receiving them as well. Handwritten notes are becoming a lost art so it’s great when so many people want to keep it alive and well.

    As a fountain pen enthusiast, all my handwritten notes are written in fountain pens. My favorite ink is Parker Quink and I have plenty of bottles and colors.

    I love cooking and baking bread. I love to read and while my Kindle is full, there is nothing like a good mystery in hardback. I also love to listen to music from the trumpet.

    Hope to hear from you.

    This is my second InCoWriMo and I’m excited to participate again. Reader, thinker and witty letter writer. Life is too short not to laugh and amuse ourselves. Professionally, I am a high school English teacher who fights the good fight against the demons of standardized testing. I’m a dog-dad to Charlie, a 3 year-old dachshund who loves ball, treats and his squeaky pig, Mabel McPig. I am a stamp hoarder! Really. I have too many, but somehow manage to use them almost as much as I buy them. The stamps “seal the deal” when receiving a letter. Can you see me rambling? Anyway, I probably won’t check this posting again, but do drop me your best interesting letter. Are we a correspondence match? I’ll wait and see! USA, Canada and UK or other English-speaking locations are best for me.

    Hello from Sunny Sydney Australia!

    I love snailmail, I even run a small private instagram snailmail group, so you know, I’m good for a reply ๐Ÿ˜‰ I have more stationery that I need, love maps, am obsessed with short-cuts, rarely do dip pen calligraphy, have a collection of vintage postcards, have two delightful young children, teach geography and the social sciences, love Vikings, Game of Thrones (have read all the books) and Scandinavian Crime Dramas, have a very messy desk and would love to hear about your organisation/ Konami/ Minimalist tips, own my Grandmother’s collection of scandalous love letters, enjoy nature, collect Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Books and just won a Bullet Journaling set and have not started (so would love some tips on that).

    The kicker is that you’ll need to DM me on Twitter or Instagram @murderingtime or email me at murderingtime@dingorock.com to get my details. I will reply, so let me know your address or if you’d like a postcard or letter (for EU/North Americans I have Echidna stamps) Oh, I haven’t filled out my InCoWriMo list yet- so let me know your deets if you do write to me.

    Woo Hoo!

      My name is Dana and hello from Auburn Hills, MI – a suburb of Detroit, Michigan here in the United States. I’m new to InCoWriMo and would like to exchange letters as we have the similar interests. I LOVE Game of Thrones and have started Bullet Journaling (I don’t know what I’d do without it!) I’m practicing my calligraphy and will be getting my nibs in the mail any day now.

      I’m putting my list together and will get started. I have nice stationary, but will have to dig it out. Until then, letters will be sent out on regular letter writing memo. Please reply with your address and I’ll be sure to add you to my list. I hope this finds you well.

      Best,

    Hello everybody!

    My sister just told me about this campaign and I’m so excited about it!
    So, I’m 18 yo student from finland and having my final exams next month. I have a myriad of interests: cooking, drawing, doing things that require making little details, travelling, photographing, camping, all kinds of outdoor activities, music, dancing and making videos just to name few of them. Now I’m on “reading holiday” so this month I don’t have school at all. What would be a better use of my time than writing letters ๐Ÿ˜€

    I found out about InCoWriMo late on the 1st so I missed a day but I want to participate. I don’t have a fancy fountain pen or even fancy paper but that is not what is important Its the letter writing. I have always wanted a pen pal but did not know how to find one. I hope participating in InCoWriMo I find one.
    I am a 58 y/o disabled female who does not work. I have a wiener dog named Frankie. I love to do crafts and I am trying to teach myself how to draw. My main craft is quilling but also make stamped cards and I play in an art journal with paint, stamps, and stencils. I also like to write just for fun. I have not even tried to publish anything. I also love to read. I am thankful for my Kindle because my tiny apartment will not hold any more books. I am a Christian and love God with all my heart.

    Today (2/4) is also National (USA) Thank a Letter Carrier Day. Let us not forget their important role in InCoWriMo.

    I would love to receive letters and would gladly reciprocate. I’m trying to (eventually) get a letter to and from every state in the US and continent. It’s a process…
