Hi people!I'm Veee, 25 from Paris (but moving to Brighton next year, yay!). I love music (from punk to post hardcore, shoegaze, pop, hip-hop, folk, electro ...), I love writing in french and in english, I love cooking,traveling, reading, I love comics and Joss Whedon's work, I spend too much time on twitter, I am a bad photographer, I collect postcards, that kind of things.I am really interested in feminism, and trauma literature, I love to translate, and as you can notice, I don't know how to introduce myself...I love meeting new people, so if you want to, feel free to ge in touch!

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.

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!

Hey all,

I'm Amy, a 22 year old living in Australia. I love punk, tattoos, my morning coffee (am I the only person whom drinks it all and then forgets and tries to drink more), rats, and of course zines.

I'm probably a bit of a horder, I collect everyone from cds, magazines, nicks nacks, just about everything.

I'd love pen pals of any age, race, whatever! Would be nice to open my eyes to other peoples style of life.

message me and we'll swap addresses.

Hi, I'm Kirsty. I'm a self-confessed dorky geek who adores reading, writing, music, zines, cats, cooking, sleeping and other doses of randomness. 

I'm from New Zealand though will send letters and other fun things all over the world and look forward to having a pen pal since it has been a while since I have had one. If anyone does want me to write to them I can be contacted either through here or my email litbitszine@gmail.com

Greetings, I'm a recent college graduate with a love for anything you can throw together with your hands. Printmaking, metalsmithing, baking, cooking, reading and more all fall under my list of joys. I'm also an avid supporter of keeping snail mail alive and well. Every letter I send is typically accompanied by some sort of little knick knack, be it a feather from the sidewalk or a bag of my favorite tea. Anybody want to swap letters with this barefoot Kentucky girl?

Hello, I'm Natalie. I am an extremely open-minded sex positive feminist. I like painting, taking pictures, dancing, and writing. I really dislike reality. I have been longing to fill envelopes with things like words, pressed flowers, and glitter. If you are interested, please contact me! :)
