HI EVERYONE, I APOLOGISE FOR THIS BUT I HAVE EXTENDED THE SIGN UP DATE TO FRIDAY 24TH TO ALLOW TIME FOR THE LAST FEW LETTERS FROM ROUND 1 TO ARRIVE. PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOUR ROUND 1 LETTER IS OUTSTANDING AND MESSAGE YOUR SWAP PARTNER. SORRY AND THANK YOU! Anna

I thought it would be fun to do a round robin letter along the lines of a travelling postcard but with a bit more text.

How it works:

If this is your first round:

Take one piece of paper (a5 or a4) Write the return address in the top right hand corner. Write an introduction - date, who you are, where you're from, what you're doing today, what you love. Write about a paragraph. Decorate the page if you like but remember people need space to write.

You then put the letter in an envelope and send it to your swap partner. Once everyone has sent the first round I will set up round 2.

If this is your second round:

write a paragraph on the letter you have received before forwarding it on to the next person. Once your page is full it gets posted back to you.

I will be starting with an a5 piece of paper to see how it goes.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Please do not join this swap if you can not commit to completing it. Round robin swaps rely on people partaking responsibly. No recent 3s or 1s. Newbies welcome with a well filled out profile.

If you decide not to continue with the swap please return the page you receive back to the original sender.

My letter is coming from the Czech Republic and hasn't arrived yet.

Yeah, what do we do if we haven't received our first round letter by the time the second round comes around?

the post to USA is being delayed since they now work with post from earlier due to bad weather. I sent to joyceann888 letter at the time it should be sent but i am afraid that they work with the old post now , here is what is stated at our post website:

Information for senders of mail to the United States Based on information from the U.S. Postal Service of 18 March 2015, provided through the Universal Postal Union, we would like to inform you that the U.S. Postal Service started to process mail accumulated due to bad weather. We would like to ask those affected for patience as the delay was due to force majeure.

a5 is approximately 8 inches by 6 inches

Can the additional people include their address also in case they want to become pen pals with the original letter writer?
