letter swap 2008

23 June 2008

I think we have enough people to make it work! If you’re still keen to play, please email your full name and postal address to machenmachen (at) gmail (dot) com by 30 June 2008. Include your blog URL if you have one, and I’ll create a blogroll of everyone who’s playing. If you know other people who might be interested in participating, do encourage them to sign up.

  • Each participant will be sent three names and addresses and will write a letter, by hand, to each one.
  • Each participant will then receive three letters, and must reply to them
  • By the end of the swap, everyone should have written six letters and received 6 letters.

Key Dates:

30 June 2008: Sign ups close

4 July 2008: Swap partners’ names and addresses emailed out

25 July 2008: Post your first three letters

31 August 2008: Reply to three letters received


All letters must be hand written on proper stationery

If sending letters overseas, use airmail, not surface mail.

  1. Hi I would love to sign up for this swap. We are so caught up with technology that we forget how precious handwritten material is. I can’t wait to do this swap.
