Hi there!

I'm Nichole. I'm 31, I write the zines Pieces and A Visitor in Myself, and I love making people's mailboxes happy. I enjoy swapping letters, stationery, stickers, post cards, zines, 1" buttons, tea, and other crafts.

If you want to swap physical addresses, send an email to: nichole@illvision.net

Hey all!

I'm Spence, a 19 year old English major, a girl (yes, even with the name Spencer, I'm a girl!) I've been reading zines for about 3 years, and this summer I've finally decided to dive in and make my own zine!! :) Anyways, I love letter and postcard writing, I'm a big fan of funny stories, and I love quotes. I'd love to have a letter or postcard pen pal! Let me know :)

Hey! I'm Ellie, 21, living in Richmond VA. I like gardens, my dog Pugg and crafts. I'm looking to trade postcards and stickers, mostly, but am into mix tapes and doodles as well! Send me a message if you'd like to share your city's cool postcard from the corner store.

I hope some of you are writing to Michael Silvera, whose pen pal ad I've posted under my name.  Many of you seem to share many interests & enthusiasms with him.

Have any of you considered it?  If not, why? 

Comment by Necro Neil on April 21, 2013 at 6:01pm

My name is Neil and I write Necronomicon fanzine, which is all about horror films and me. I have written fanzines for over half of my life and I really miss having penpals and zines and mix music sent to me through the post. So I would love to write to someone with an actual pen and get hand cramp. I love cheesy horror films, drawing, painting, sewing, reading graphic novels/comics, urbex, gaming, making experimental music, talking about gender, spooky macabre stuff and Im geekily obsessed with music (post punk, post hardcore, grunge, riot grrl etc). If youre interested send me an email to necroneil@live.com Im in the UK, male, 32 if that matters but I dont mind who you are or where youre from. Just send me your address and say hi!

Hi, I am Zach, and I would love to have some snailmail/email penpals. :)

I like making art and giving art away (lately I've been drawing pen and ink creatures and making collages).

I'm a teacher by trade, a writer. I can write really long-ass letters when inspired.

I am queer, like talking about gender nonconformity, trans-rights, day to day life in my gender. I like music, the arts. I'm very active as a volunteer.

My email is zachary DOT gedelman AT gmail.com

Hello!  I'm Fishspit and I put out the zine Wiseblood.

I would love to have some snail mail pen pals from anywhere and any age.

I'd also be into trading tapes.  I got thousands of records and a tape deck . . . so I can't make c.d.s.   I can listen to c.d.'s in my car though, if you can't make tapes.

I love talking music and just telling stories. I got thousands of old punk records, plus jamacain ska, rock a billy from the old days, and enough psychedelic sounds to keep your acid trip running for eons!  I like Baudelaire, Byron, and bunnyrabbits.  If you're into animal rights, your the pen pal for me.

Don't be shy!   Fishspit, 1304 175th Pl NE, Bellevue, WA, 98008

Comment by Arcane Angles Zine on March 2, 2013 at 12:14pm

Hi, I'm Paul (Mad Monk), Creator of Arcane Angles Zine.  My zine deals with the Occult, the Paranormal, and the Bizarre and that's also what I'm into.  I'm also very into death and black metal, the macabre and weird, H.P. Lovecraft, simple living, anarchism, and urbex.

Looking for pen pals willing to write thru snail mail on above topics and trade zines as well.  No offense, but prefer not to write to convicts.  If interested in snail mail correspondence, please email me at arcaneangleszine@gmail.com to get the ball rolling.

Comment by reports from Luke on February 13, 2013 at 10:17pm

Hello, friends. I'm 24 in the New Jerseyan suburbs of New York City. I'm looking for penpals on snailmail or email. I am a visual creator and I want to make a zine with the help of international artists from the web. If you want to participate, thats a plus. I hope to talk about art, fun, travel, relationships, modernity, philosophy, language and anything else interesting. Let's chat!
