An Autumn Pen Friend Exchange at The Victorian Letter Writers Guild

We had such a wonderful time corresponding during the Summer Pen Friend Exchange and now it's time to kick off the Autumn Exchange! If you enjoy handwritten correspondence with like-minded people, The Victorian Letter Writers Guild may be for you! Check out my Welcome message in the menu bar then sign up now for our Autumn Pen Friend Exchange! 

If you've participated in the past: Please note that you do NOT have to give up your former pen friends! This exchange is for an additional pen friend, so if you're enjoying corresponding with your match from an earlier round, please continue to do so!

Here's what you need to know:
  • The Summer exchange will run from September 1st - November 30th. You will receive your pen friend's information by September 1st. (Please be patient with me as I'm moving to our new home this week! Yay!)  Sign ups close August 29th.
  • This is an international exchange but please expect to write your partner in English. (If you and your partner decide to write in a more familiar language, that is fine.)
  • A minimum of one letter to your partner is required. If you decide to continue the correspondence after that, wonderful!
  • I am not responsible for "flakers", but anyone who does not keep their commitment will not be included in further exchanges. {Please let me know if your previous partner(s) did not contact you during a previous exchange.}
  • Privacy Statement: Your information will only be given to your assigned pen friend. I will not use it for any kind of advertising, marketing, or other commercial purposes, nor will I publish it in any form. There is no fee to join the Guild---it's strictly for fun and fellowship. I will add your email to a list for my own purposes and will only send emails regarding the pen friend exchange or other Guild activities I think you might be interested in, such as giveaways or letter writing challenges. I will not add you to my blog subscription list but there is a link on the sidebar to do so if you wish.

  1. I'm not ready to give up my pen pal, we just got matched and are just getting to know each other. Seeing as I'm pretty much home bound if there are not enough to get a match and there is an extra I would gladly take another one also.

    1. Oh yes, I should don't need to give up your pen friend from an earlier round. This is just to add an additional pen friend, if you'd like. If you'd like an additional match, do be sure to send me your sign up information!

  2. I just came across your blog and the Guild, am I too late to sign up for the Autumn Pen Friend Exchange? This is right up my alley!
