This is a swap for those who love to have pen pals from all over the world. After this swap, you might find that you'll want to continue on writing to one another---but it's definitely not mandatory. This swap is for LADIES ONLY. {No offense to men...this just makes it more comfortable for those of us who are married or in a relationship and don't feel comfortable writing to another guy! :) }

You will have 5 partners and will write each of them once. You may write an intro letter, or you can just launch into whatever you have been up to lately. There are no rules about content---other than it be respectful and not vulgar.

Letters MUST be at least two a5 size pages long (or one sheet---full front, full back) and MUST be handwritten. The idea is to write a decent letter that is worth reading and replying to. (TIP: You don't have to wait for your partners to be assigned to start your letters. Write up some intro letters and add personalization once you've got your partners.)

It is not necessary to reply to the letters you receive in this swap. If you would like a reply back, make sure to include your address in case your partner decides to reply.

I can not stress enough the importance of the letters being of good quality and handwritten. I will ban from any future swaps those who don't observe these two parts of the swap. If you are not able to handwrite 5 letters within the time frame of this swap then please do not join. (You are more than welcome to copy this swap for a typed-letter swap, if you'd like.)

This swap is for members who plan to put some time and good effort into writing an interesting letter for their partner. Therefore, a minimum rating of 4.9 is set and I will check profiles to make sure that anyone with less than a 5.0 rating will be a good fit.

Thanks so much for considering this swap---have fun!

There are those of us who have arthritis in our hands and can Not hand write a letter and are still interested in this kind of swap.

The road to the inclusion if the disabled is not by telling them to go and play elsewhere. It's by making our games inclusive.

@Margothecat I went and set up one that will include typed letters.

Hello everyone!! So my mailbox was broken into and I don't know how often they have done it or which days. It's a duplex community so it's one big lock box for the whole place and everyone here's has been stolen I only found out cause I haven't received any of my packages from anywhere and including my amazon orders so I asked the neighborhood they have all missing things so we made a complaint to the post office they have found out the main lock on the back that opens to the whole thing has been altered (why they didn't notice this when putting mail in idk) anyways long story short I will rate everyone a heart for this mess and I will rewrite and resend everyone's just in case (this time i'll go to the post office). Thank you for the understanding my apologies.
