The Write On Challenge starts on April 1st! If you would like more info about the challenge, click the link, and it will take you to the FAQ page for the challenge.
Please note! This is not a newbie swap, and you need to have been a member of SB for at least 6 months to join this swap! Please read ALL of the swap description.
Please address the envelope clearly following USPS standards! You can find their instructions here: USPS Delivery Address Please be sure to use your name/address in the return address area on the envelope.
This swap will be part of a series for those who wish to participate in the challenge, and wish to have people to send letters to. You do not have to participate in the challenge to do the swap. For this swap you will have up to 10 partners, International, to write and mail a letter to. If you are doing the challenge, you might want to write one letter per day and mail it. The idea of the challenge is to write a letter every day of the month of April. If you are not doing the challenge, just want to write letters, just be sure you write ONE letter to EACH partner and mail by the send by date.
If you have joined other rounds, you may get letters from one round to people you will be writing in in future rounds. You can use the swap to answer the previous letter, you don't have to write a whole new intro letter. :)
The requirement for the swap is to write ONE letter to EACH partner and MAIL before the DEADLINE. This swap is INTERNATIONAL, so please be sure you are able to send and receive mail, and that you will be able to mail up to 10 letters Internationally. (I will post some USA only swaps as well.)
This swap is part of a SERIES, so please be sure you include the full title of the swap and your swap bot ID in your letter so your partner can rate you!
This is not a ratings booster swap, and it is not a newbie swap. You need to have been a member on Swap Bot for at least 6 months, with no late sends, no un-resolved 1's or 3's on your account. Your profile needs to be well filled out - details about your likes/dislikes, interests, etc because your partner will need to look at your profile to write you a letter! If your profile isn't well filled out, you will be removed from the swap. If your rating is below 4.98, please send me a PM and explain your ratings.
For this swap, you will write EACH partner ONE letter. The letter should be at least 2 pages, about A5 size (about 5x8 inches). 1 page = 1 side of a sheet, so front and back would be 2 pages. OK? (You can use one full size 8.5x11/A4 size sheet of paper on just one size and it will be acceptable too.) Letter can be typed or handwritten, and paper can be stationery or plain paper. The swap is about the letter, not the decoration.
All swappers should sign into Swap Bot at least 3 days before swap is assigned, or you will be removed from the swap. I need to see that you are current and signing into SB!
What do you write? Look at your partner's profile! Take a look at their likes, favorites, which groups they are members of and comment on their profile. Do you have anything in common? Have you seen any movies you think they would like? Can you suggest a craft channel you think they might like? You should include at least one paragraph specifically to your partner based on their profile. You need to READ their profile. The rest of your letter can be about yourself, where you live, what your interests are, things like that. Your partner should be able to tell that you looked at their profile so the letter can feel personal and not like a form letter. OK?
Now, this is not necessarily a pen pal swap - your partner has no responsibility to reply to your letter, nor do you have to reply to the letters you receive. But, you may find someone you would like to continue to write to, and please let your partner know if you are interested in that.
If you have ANY questions, PLEASE PM me I will respond as soon as I can.
