Hey guys, I'm Huda, 21, from Singapore and I've never penpal-ed before so I thought it'll be great to jump into it. I don't mind trading my zines or any that I've collected or exchange letters or fun stuffs with new friends. I'm a huge fan of 1990s brat pack films, musicals, cults movies, pop culture, literature. I'd love to meet new friends, write me at hudaazzis@gmail.com

Hi everyone! I'm Kalaeja and I'm 17 in Sacramento. I'm looking for pen pals that would love to send me some of there zines, and we could trade art and music. I would love to start my own zines in the near future, but for now I'm just a reader. I am a big fan of fashion, music, art, lifestyle, poetry, horror, and vintage zines. I would love to connect with people with the same interests as me, and even people with different interests so we can share things with eachother! I am an aspiring fashion designer and lover of art. I make my own artwork that I would love to share with others. I love scrapbooking and collaging also, and I am just now getting into creating zines. I want to experiment before I start one of my own. If you are interested in being my pen pal shoot me an email please! I am looking forward to hearing from someone I can swap ideas with!

Hi there. I'm Sandra. Am 40 yrs old and am looking for penpals around my age group.

Love writing, reading, zine making, painting, movies (different array). Have OCD and am pretty blunt (can you handle that?) looking for  pals who aren't terrified of someone with a mental illness. Love real people and by that I mean people who don't put on a pretense. And can hold down a conversation and are passionate about what they love.

Have 3 zines out at the moment: Razor Sharp Haze Daze, Different Shades of Normal (which recieved a 'crickets' response) and Tarantula Face: Slippery When Dyked. Am someone who loves to trade but not a fan of those who say they are going to trade and don't keep their word.

My email is: sandra_reiki_@hotmail.com

if you wish to get in touch.

Thanks. Have a nice day lol

Hey ya'll!  I'd like some mail!

 

Lets see, I'm 26 in Sacramento, I make a comic zine called Dreams of Donuts, and if you send me mail I'll probably send you zines and mixtapes.

I want a zine penpal where we make only 1 or 2 copies of the zine we write for one another. I have friends who have done this and as they became better friends, the zines turned out better and better! Let me know if you are interested!!!! I am 28/female from Athens, GA. I am really into punk and indie music, zines, art, friends, shows, crafts, feeling free and being happy. <3

hi everybody! i love to write letters to my friends. But they won't reply! I guess they want me to use e-mail...

Comment by Bani Amor on July 24, 2012 at 1:30pm

hey everyone! i was writing letters and making mail art when i got the idea to make a zine out of letters to pen pals. i'm just gonna write some mail, photocopy for the zine and send you the original. send me your address and anything about you if you're interested! 

i haven't made a zine in forever, i've been focusing on getting published and need an excuse to spend time offline and with my typewriter. plus i love sending mail. i'm 24, live in nyc, moving to south america soon, into DIY, traveling, buddhism, feminism, street art, indie films and music, blah blah. i have a website- http://baniamor.wordpress.com/.

get in touch!

Hello everyone. If anyone is interested in exchanging letters with some kid from the States who likes music a lot, please let me know. I love sending and receiving letters, and meeting interesting and cool people through being pen pals. Write me on my page! -simon
