i'll be moving to nyc, by next year. meanwhile, i figure i can write to people, like form a tight pen-pal relationships, with those who already live there? good idea, no? i hope whatever. i like writing, shit-cartooning, generally just making things, music, and drinking. (beer, milkshakes, chocolate milk, 40oz.s etc.)

Hey guys!

I am interested in some snail mail correspondence! I am in graduate school (philosophy, with a focus of food), have a food blog (www.wingedsnail99.blogspot.com). I want to start making some food related zines and have dreams about a food/cook zine distro in the future!

Basically, my life is food!

I'm a 26 (Soon to be 27) year old in Peterborough, UK. I love to make zines and doodles, as well as attend fairs and meets, go to the pub and listen to live bands. I also love travelling, taking photos, scrapbooking, flirting... and writing. I've got some new gorgeous letter kits screaming out to be used for penpalling! I don't mind where you live, anywhere in the world. If you want to be my panpal I'll post you little pieces of art or mini zines and do my best to make my handwriting legible. Message me if you're interested!

This year I "resolved" to start writing pen-pals again, since I enjoyed it very much for the years I actually did so.  I'm looking for pals in the USA only right now, due to postage prices.

I'm a 30 year old woman who is never going to "grow up."  I like animals, I like arts and crafts, I like horror, zombies make me happy.  I love to write, and have a horrible internet addiction.

nonersays@gmail.com is my e-mail.  Send me your addy if you want me to go first, or ask for mine if you want to write the first letter.

Hi there! Letters are super cool. I would be happy to be pen pals with anyone and everyone. I like nature, chai tea, rain, jam bands, square-dancing in high heels, yoga, and permaculture. Get in touch!

My name is Joey, and I'm looking to do a letter themed zine...

The issue is, I have nobody to write letters to!

Send me an email with your address and I'll get writing!
Preferably in the US though... I don't have much to spend on postage

Hello. I'm Sarah. I'm new to WMZ and I'm currently putting together my first zine. I'm 23 and live in the Midlands, UK. I'm looking for a pen friend or 2 to write letters and send fun things. I love stationary and stickers, Zines, Cult Literature, Crafts, Deer and Owls, Films, Music (many genres - shoegaze, indie, avant garde, grunge, folk, riot grrrl etc.) Vintage markets, Baking, Cats & tons of other crap. PM me :)

If besides letters you want to be creative in the process, there is the IUOMA (International Union of mail-Artists) where you can find thousands of connections too:

Hi, I'm Rachel, 27, living in London, although originally from Newcastle upon Tyne. I like to draw letters to people, about whatever I am feeling at the time. Get in touch if you would like a drawn letter?
