A Week of Letters
Swap Coordinator:dreamlily (contact)
Swap categories: Letters & Writing 
Number of people in swap:77
Type:Type 2: Flat mail
Last day to signup/drop:March 16, 2013
Date items must be sent by:March 29, 2013
Number of swap partners:5

Inspired by Lettermo (A months worth of sending mail to people) I've created a weeks worth of mail.

You will have five partners (one for each day of the working week). You will write to each of these partners ONCE, sending the letters out within the week.

You don't need to write an introductory letter if you don't want. Just write whatever comes to mind. There is no limit on the length of the letter, but please don't just send a postcard or small note.

Remember to include your address in case your partners want to write back!

Do these letters need to be handwritten or can they be typed? I ask because sometimes I have problems with my wrist and if they need to be handwritten I would like to make sure I can give myself enough time to write before I sign up.

aerothoughts 03/12/2013 #

I'm new, is it okay if I sign up? I saw that there were newbie specific swaps and I'm not sure if those are the only ones I can sign up for.

dreamlily 03/12/2013 #

@topekagal66601 yes, they need to be handwritten :)

@aerothoughts - feel free to sign up to this swap, but please do your best.

dreamlily 03/12/2013 #


Hi guys, just a side note, feel free to save up all your letters for the end of the week and post them all on the same day. It doesn't really matter if you can't post a letter each day, as long as they go off.

Also, the letters must be handwritten. No typed up letters please.

meganporter789 03/14/2013 #

Do we say we've sent the letters on the day we send the last letter or the day we send the first letter?

badandknowsit2 03/14/2013 #

hope u do this again i had surgery on right shoulder and cant write only type

dreamlily 03/14/2013 #

@meganporter789 on the last day you have sent everything off, that's the date you click 'sent'.

@badandknowsit02 - I'll run this swap again within my penpals group - the link is in the details of the swap above. Feel free to join :)

kirstyenarno 03/21/2013 #

meganporter789 03/21/2013 #

I have also sent out 3! Sending out the 4th one day!!

dreamlily 03/21/2013 #

Writing my last letter today!

taoiionam 03/23/2013 #

I've just finished writing the third one... I guess I talk too much ^^ But my partners all look so interesting ^^

dreamlily 03/24/2013 #

It's interesting - some of you have sent mega long letters, and some of you short and sweet. I hope everyone appreciates both kinds!!!

Am going to create another one of these swaps, so if you're interested please keep an eye out!


topekagal66601 03/26/2013 #

I sent out 4 of my 5 today. I'm hoping to get to the post office to get the last one out tomorrow.

tampatha 03/27/2013 #

mine are all going out today... :)

milkybunny 03/28/2013 #

Phew! Just mailed all 5 today. :)

kimberlym322 03/29/2013 #

last 2 going out in the mail today

Fever 03/29/2013 #

Right, I posted all my letters today - I don't know though, when they'll go out because of the Easter Weekend - it's a Holiday here in Germany so if I'm unlucky, they won't be sent until Tuesday. Bear with me, if that's the case, but they might still go out tomorrow, maybe! :)

topekagal66601 03/29/2013 #

I've been sick so didn't make it out to mail the last one before now but I got the last one mailed out this morning :)

dreamlily 03/29/2013 #

Greets all! The date for sending out your letters has passed, and I've messaged a handful of you who have not noted your items as 'sent' yet. (This could just be an oversight on your part - you may have already sent your stuff but just have forgotten to press send in the swap)

If you ARE having problems getting your mail out on time, please message me AND your partner/s to let them know it's running a little late.

Thanks again for being part of this swap. Number 2 A Week of Letters is up now - with some clearer guidelines on length requirements, and handwriting.

My other letter swap deadline got moved up a month and with all the Easter prep, this deadline slipped right past me! I have the letters written, I just need to send them out- I'll drop em in the box and they'll go out first thing monday morning when the mail runs again. Sorry about the delay, my punctuality (and my memory) is for crapola lately- :/
