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?

Hi everyone, I'm Christine. I'm 25 and I live in Scotland. I like reading zines and comics and have aspirations of making my own zine maybe next year (I want to write my boyfriend a comic for his Christmas first - which is daunting, but if I can do that, a zine should be a breeze!). I currently have a blog which can be found here.

I'm a geek for weird/ arthouse/ foreign/ indie/ etc. films and experimental/ arty/ DIY/ punky/ hardcore music (plus some hip-hop). I also like making things, baking, eating, art, sewing, reading, fashion and probably lots more I could mention.

I'm an upbeat kind of girl and love meeting new friends and learning new things. I'm pretty much up for writing to anyone so long as we have something in common and they will write back.

Comment by Bani Amor on October 16, 2011 at 8:37am


my name is Bani Amor, I'd like to think of myself as a travel writer, and a writer of zines. I'm from New York, and after years of traveling, I'm unfortunately still here. I write everything (except for my journal!) on a Remmington Typewriter and would love to send letters to people who will write me back.

I like films, feminism, surrounding myself with other queer people of color, meeting people from other towns then meeting them in person when I'm traveling, kombucha, Sufjan Stevens...I love sending photos, fliers, stories and feelings through the mail. I like the internet less and less. Talk to me if you want to be a penpal!
