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

Looking for more people to write to. I'm not sure what information to include. I've made a few mini zines that I'd love to swap. I also love music, questions and long ranty letters. So yeah, I guess the only way to get to know me is to just write me! (or let me write you!)

my email is remikeahi@gmail.com

you can also read my blog to get to know me better.

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!
