Welcome to The Victorian Letter Writers Guild!

Scattered amongst our fast-paced, stressed-out society, there is a special kind of people hiding in plain sight.

They come from all walks of life and possess varied interests and goals, but all hold one desire in common---a longing for a more relaxed and thoughtful way of life.

The Victorian senses of modesty, decency, and order required them to live in a way many of us desire to emulate today.

There are many benefits of structuring our routines to enjoy life at a slower pace. I appreciate the ability to be more authentic and attentive in my communications with others. One way I accomplish this is by composing handwritten letters, often sent with an accompanying poem or recipe.

If you enjoy handwritten correspondence with like-minded people, The Victorian Letter Writers Guild may be for you!

Here you will find:

  • Creative ideas for designing extra-special correspondence
  • Mail art techniques
  • Historical information regarding letter writing, Victorians, etiquette, and more
  • Quarterly pen friend exchanges
  • Writing-related swaps and giveaways

Be sure to follow us on Instagram to stay caught up on the latest guild happenings and diversions. We're glad you're here!

  2. This is what I’ve been looking for, handwritten letter amongst laddies who share a love for a different time. Many of the pen pal sites I have sought out over the years are all outdated and full of inactive users. Which is why I’m particularly impressed with your Guild! I’ve tried for years to get my friends to send letters with me, learn embroidery, use Victorian vocabulary, and dress up for tea with me. All to no avail, so hopefully this pen pal exchange will help me find other 18 (or around that) year olds that have similar tastes as me. Pardon me for writing a small novel, I’m just wonderfully excited about your Guild!

  3. I was looking for the link to sign up for next year's pen friend match up. Can someone help me?
