    What a helpful article! I’ve never written so much as a postcard to anyone and this makes it seem much less daunting 🙂
    I’m not sure if this is the right place to ask but I signed up for this round of pen pal matchups and didn’t receive any emails… I saw on Instagram the enormous amount of people that signed up so it’s totally understandable! Can anything be done or should I wait until the next round? Thanks! I would love to put your advice to use.

      Edit: Never mind, I’m an idiot for not checking my spam folder! I’m glad I didn’t miss out on this opportunity and I can’t wait to start writing my letter using these tips! 🙂
      I wish I could go to your Letter Writing Club but unfortunately I have class 6-9 on Thursdays 🙁 I’d love to meet others writing letters for the first time!

        So glad to hear you received the email safely!

        That is a shame, but hopefully one day our Letter Writing Club will coincide with a time you’re free. It’s a great time to just come and relax – you can write on your own with a cup of coffee, or you can chat with the folks around you. One day! 🙂

    One suggestion: Start with something along the lines of, “I was given your name and address in the Wonder Pens pen pal exchange.”

      That’s a great idea, to let people know how they received your address, whether it’s from our pen pal match, someone else’s, or a publicly available address. Thanks so much for sharing the tip!

    Very helpful tips!
    I’m sorry but I signed up for the pen pal match and I didn’t receive any email with my match! I’ve also checked my spam folder and there’s nothing in there… Anything else I can do?

    Hi! Helpful tips, thanks.
    I didn’t receive any email with my penpal match and I’ve already checked my spam folder and there is nothing in there either.
    Is it still possible to participate?
