This swap is simple. You will have 5 partners. You will HAND write an introductory letter to each of them and send it snail mail.

Introduction Letter Ideas (feel free to use your own however):

§ Your name, age, and gender

§ Where do you live and what does it look like

§ Describe your family

§ What do you like to do for fun?

§ Do you go to school/work? What do you study/do?

§ Do you have pets?

§ What is your favorite color, food, music, activity, etc.

§ Ask questions about your new friend!

Be creative. You can draw a picture, add a border, decorate the envelope, or anything you would like to share. Please write a substantial amount...not a novel but more than 1 page.

International and open to newbies with well completed profile. No 1 ratings...if special circumstances exist, PM me and explain. I will evaluate on a case-by-case basis.

I will angel this swap if needed but will be careful to weed out potential flakers.

I know the swap said to hand write the letter. I have a really bad handwriting. Is it possible that it could be typed? How long is the letter supposed to be? I am watching for now. Thanks in advance.

These ones need to be hand written. Typing is much faster (and neater) in most cases but the art of a hand written letter is almost extinct. My thought it to revive that and it also makes the letter feel more personal.

You could print if you prefer.

Quick question, Is the potential here to gain up to 10 pen pals? If you send out 5 letters and they reply and you receive 5 letters and reply then are we looking at a total of 10? Watching for now. Thanks Bloodykissesgirl

Yep. That is a possibility!

I can up it to ten partners if people are really wanting new pals...

I think given the timeframe, 5 is fine, especially seeing as how there's the possibility that you could in fact "end up with" ten anyway :o) Great swap!

Once the deadline ends. How soon will we get our swap partners? I'm new to this but really looking forward to this pen pal swap.
