    Happy New Year!

    A pen friend exchange is a great idea. I have pen friends, but they are all in other countries. I have been thinking about someone in Canada and here is my chance.

    Thank you for organizing the exchange!

      I hope you got someone in Canada! Actually, I was a bit surprised by the number of international correspondents. It was a pleasure to organize, quite a lot of fun actually, and we’re hoping to do it again this summer!

    This would be great. It’s always nice to get mail. And it would be great practice to write again. My writing is so sloppy now!

      It is great practice to get writing again, and hopefully get some ink running through your pens. Here’s to many wonderful letters flying through the post!

    Just signed up. I haven’t had a pen pal since I was in public school and that is too many years ago to even think about right now. Should be fun!

      I hope you enjoy it! It’s something that I hope ends up being both a bit of fun, but also leads to a good friendship 🙂

    This is a great idea. Look forward to this. Used to have a pen pal when I was younger. This is a wonderful creative exercise

    What a great idea!! I had pen pals when I was younger, and still write to two of them! We even met when she came to see me on vacation!!
    So exciting!!

      Yes, it’s been really terrific to see how many people have signed up! And how exciting for you to meet up with one of them – some of my favourite friendships are through correspondence 🙂

    I’m so excited for this! Thank you Liz. I just signed up!
    I’m from a generation where you could either telephone or hand- or type-write a letter/ postcard to a person. 😳 never liked the type writer – too impersonal! As I am typing away on my iPhone! But that’s different, right?

      I’m so glad to hear it! It’s exciting for us to hear just about everyone getting ready for the month or to write to their new pen pals. Wishing you two wonderful friendships over correspondence 🙂

    Thank you for the great pen pal match up. I received a letter today from a lovely lady who asks me kindly to write soon. But she had not enclosed her address. So, I suspect she thinks that I already have her address. Can you help me?

    • wonderpens

      I’m so sorry that there was no return address enclosed! Could you send us an email (info@wonderpens.ca) and we can see if we can help you out? Perhaps this will be an enduring friendship that will overcome a few bumps!

    Hi there! Will you be doing another one of these at some point? I only recently discovered you guys (Ottawa native here!) and missed this!

    • wonderpens

      We will! We are planning on opening up the match for submitting your information in early August, and sending out matches late August or early September. Stay tuned! 🙂
