Letter Writing Social


Hey lovelies. Thanks for your comments on my travel journal and any suggestions you left. If you have anymore let me know.

Lately, I've been thinking about holding a letter writing social. Basically a group of people get together and write whatever letters you have in your pile. I got the idea from Letter Writers Alliance. You can share stationery and other writing implements. I see they sometimes have a few typewriters available too. 

My other idea is, letters could be written to people who need a little smile brought to their face. The World Needs more Love Letters is a community of people who write positive letters to strangers. Either by writing letters and leaving them in places for people to pick up or to send a bundle to someone who needs to be uplifted. It's such a great idea. I'm thinking of signing up to receive requests to write a love letter. 

So I was thinking I could combine this with a letter writing social. We could write letters to our own pen pals, friends and family but also write a few for those strangers that need a little happiness. 

I'm thinking of holding one in Brisbane sometime in future. Any Brisbanites that would be interested? What I love about handwritten letters is the time, effort and heart that goes into it. It's amazing how good it feels to see a letter in the postbox after a long day, knowing that this person took time to write about their lives, or to answer questions or to lift your spirits.

Has anyone ever attended a letter writing social? Remember any Brisbane peeps to let me know if you are interested at all.

Have a lovely weekend.

I would come if I could! ;) Since you've been talking about this, I'm definitely tempted to host one myself - I have a couple friends that write letters, and maybe others could be enticed to join if I offer cake :P
