I love to travel, and I love to talk about places I've been as well as hear about places others have been. (I can talk for hours about Cambodia)

For each monthly themed swap, you'll have 3 partners and send each of them a postcard with a note about a place you've been that follows the monthly theme. Use the questions that follow as a guideline for your note. THIS IS A WRITING SWAP!

September's Theme is: PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT

In honor of Labor Day, write about a place of employment. This can be a current job or from the past. Where do/did you work? What does/did your desk or workspace look like? Has anything memorable happened at the work site? (Write as much as you can fit on the back of the postcard about this place.)

Write the Swap Name (Places I've Been - Sep2010), Swap Theme (PLACE OF EMPLOYMENT) and Your Name VERY CLEARLY on the postcard.

The postcards can be handmade or store-bought. It's usually best to check your partners' preferences 1st!

If you have a postcard of the "place you've been", that's fantastic, but it does NOT have to be. ONLY the message must be written about the place.

This swap is international, and is open to all, You will only be banned if you have really bad recent ratings, if you have any no-sends in this series of swaps, if you have failed to meet the swap requirements in this series of swaps, or are just plain questionable.

Happy travels!

As always, if you have any other ideas for monthly travel themes, please share them. I will gladly use your ideas on upcoming swaps!

DISCLAIMER: This swap is intended to be a writing experience. If you fail to adequately write about this month's theme, your partner may rate you a 3 for not meeting the swap requirements. Please read the theme questions carefully.

Sorry i'm real new do you only sign up for this month?

@getoffthatspacehopper Yes, you only sign up for each month as you're interested. I offer them every month with different writing prompts.

I'm french, and my english writting wil be quite "strange", but I'd like to participate to this travel. I moved a lot in France for my work and it would be great to participate to that swap. Do you think it's possible ? I have participated to many french swaps, but this is the 1st time on swap-bot end the 1st one in english... Thanks.
