Hi guys. I'm an uncloseted (i.e., gay) poet and singer-songwriter from San Diego, California in my late 20s/soon-to-be early 30s. I'm charmed by words, tacos, tattoos, slasher flicks and fight sports. I've written a couple of poetry e-books, nothing too serious. And I'm gonna be introducing my very first (ever) set of zines at the end of the month. I love, love, LOVE to write (I take photos of my personal journal for my Tumblr page) and meet new people. Gay, Straight, Male, Female, everyone's cool. Wanna be my pen pal? Send me an e-mail (whiskeyandfolk@gmail.com) and I can send my snail mail address, or we can be e-pals, whichever. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hi my name is Francesca I'm 20 years old and I live in Utrecht NL (although I lived in Italy most of my life). I study Economics and Law at University.

I'm looking for a pen pal with whom trade zines or letters or both.

I like to talk about: northern California, the radio, punk music, chemistry, beginner's astrophysics, ecology, Paris, everyday feminism, food, economics, poetry, bikes, cats, you tube, clothes, hair products & dye, photocopies, libraries, activism, yoga, meditation, incense flavors, home decoration.

See if you can relate to one or two of those things. Please don't write if your first letter is gonna be a list of your accomplishments in life--- I like chill correspondence with things like, how's your typical day like where you live 

Thank you for reading!

My address for now is (check my page for changes):

FRANCESCA

UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS

I'd just like to re-post my address and whatnot.

Hi, I'm Chris. I'm 20, and a Junior at William Paterson University, where I am majoring in English-Writing. My favorite hobbies are reading and writing; I've completed a short novel and a script for a graphic novel, and a plethora of stories, poems, essays, and scripts for cartoons and comix. I also "edit" a satirical zine called Strangury.Though I read a wide variety of authors (Jorge Luis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, H.C. Anderson, Albert Camus, etc.) I prefer the sci-fi and fantasy genres, particularly P.K. Dick, Stephen King, Lovecraft, Lord Dunsany and more. I used to make an art/lit zine with my friends, but we more-or-less quit when we went to college. I'm obsessed with the concept of snail mail, and I love connecting with other creative people, so having the opportunity to achieve both, I'm rather excited. I'd very much like to correspond, trade, collaborate, etc.

Hit me up at theenigmanj@yahoo.com

or send a letter to:

Thanks for reading, and I hope to hear from you soon.

Hello, My name is Stacey. I'm 24 living in Iowa. I spend most of my time writing letters, decorating and making envelopes, sending postcards, reading, writing, swap-botting, and many other things. I love having pen pals that actually respond in a timely fashion. I don't want any email penpals, I prefer good ole snail mail so shoot me a letter, a zine, a post card, whatever and I'll respond as long as you send your address or I can read the return address. I love long letters but I'll accept anything mail related. Please, make my day, Mail is the best part of it!

Comment by Maria M. on September 7, 2013 at 9:07am

Hey, everyone! I'm Maria, 21, recently moved to Iowa City, IA. I'm a brand new grad student struggling with a book addiction. I also enjoy art (mostly appreciating it), music (classical, post-rock, random other types), watching tv and movies (Doctor Who, I'm a Bryan Fuller fangirl, Pacific Rim... etc) , sleeping, baking, poetry, tea, comics (Sandman, V for Vendetta, Fables, Sandman Mystery Theatre...), colorful things, and things that smell good (even people, but I don't sniff random people that's creepy). I'm collecting ideas and plans for my first zine... but I haven't really put it together yet. I'd be up for a snail mail pen pal or an email one (though I'd probably limit the amount of snail mail people I talk to...) . Correspondence is one favorite form of procrastination. If you want to see some snippets of my life before deciding to talk to me, I've started a blog: here and I have tumblr. (Also I like postcards!). Leave me a comment or send me an email at crescentsandwords [at] gmail [dot] com if you want to chat!
