It's that time of year again. Get your pens and inks out and primed for February 1st, which kicks off the month of InCoWriMo (short for International Correspondence Writing Month).
The objective is to write one letter every day in the month of February. 28 days, 28 handwritten letters. A fine excuse for using up some colorful ink!
Some of us may be a little short on people to write letters to. I mean, 28 is a lot of people, right? That's OK because we're here to facilitate a letter exchange between folks that follow InkJournal and the Flex Nib Friday newsletter.
To start off, you can view a short list of 28 people who you can write to on the InCoWriMo website, but if you would like to correspond with other pen enthusiasts, ink lovers and stationery nerds, you've come to the "write" place (see what I did there?).
If you are interested in sharing your e-mail address with other like-minded InCoWriMo's around the world, fill out the form below. During the last week of January, we will e-mail a shared Google doc that will contain first names and e-mail addresses only to those who signed up. Then, it is your choice to e-mail the folks on that list to obtain their physical address.
If you'd like to write to us, you can do so at this address: InkJournal, PO Box 394, Keansburg, NJ 07734. It may take us a while longer than February, but we'll write you back!
