    Advice On Starting A Pen-Pal Group?

    I think snail-mail would suit the Steampunk community - the chance to use fountain or dip pens, wax seals, gold leaf, etc. My experience with reddit.com/r/FountainPenPals was a lack of connection -- I had fun with it, but rarely did the correspondence continue beyond the first letter from each match. Any advice for starting a new pen-pal matching service? I'm thinking: limit of 2 pen-pals at a time 'till you've participated in a previous round of matching & nobody complained you flaked on mailing themoffer InCharacter (writing as your steampunk persona) or OutOfCharacter (writing as yourself) options:Prompt for IC: "The Great Alliance is signed, your government calls on you to write these foreigners & get to know our new allies to strengthen the bonds among our nations"Prompt for OOC: you see your pen pal's answers from sign-up process questions, like "what's your favorite part of steampunk?" or "how do you participate in steampunk?"Figured I'd use Google Forms to get everyone's address, email, one-off/continuing-correspondence preference, IC/OOC preference, & answers to any prompt questions -- leave that open for ~10 days, then email everyone their match(es). I'll post the announcement on a few steampunk & pen pal forums like BrassGoggles, reddit's r/steampunk and r/penpals, the local steampunk Facebook, etc. If it goes well, run a new round of match-ups every month or two. ...thoughts?
  3. I've just become a member of The Letter Writers Alliance, thought it would be great to be part of this since I did allot of greeting cards and I like to write, specially with my fountain pens. Any of you part of this alliance? If so, what is your experience?

  5. Hello everyone! This is my first post on the site. I am so happy to have discovered Fountain Pen Network; I've spent the last several hours looking through the various forums! Sorry if this topic has been covered before, but I wasn't able to find anything with the search results. I'm an avid pen-pal letter writer, and I've been wanting to improve my penmanship. I was thinking of looking at 'Business' style ala Mills. I was intrigued by the Spencerian style, but I'm wondering if that would take up too much space while writing a lengthy letter. What styles do you tend to write with for personal correspondence? Thanks in advance!

    Incowrimo 2016

    Just wondering if anyone is participating in incowrimo 2016, which will begin soon? I haven't seen any update on incowrimo.org I'll be happy to send my address via message for participants (or if you're looking for a pen pal).
