Hey guys! So, I posted in the cabinet to gauge interest, and it seems like quite a few of y'all would be down for some snail mail fun! Because of that, I thought I'd make a topic to set things up and kind of explain what's going on in further detail.
What is this?
Pen pals are pretty much exactly that! They are two people who send each other letters in the mail, getting to know each other in an analog way! In recent years, pen palling has become something of an art form, where people use drawings, collage, and paper craft to make beautiful envelopes and letters. However, at its core, pen pals are just two people who write letters to each other, and it's up to you how simple or complex you want that experience to be!
How do you participate?
So, the main thing is to post in this thread saying you want to participate! Then either you can PM someone else in the thread or wait for someone to PM you, and exchange contact info.
In addition to posting that you're interested, I would also suggest telling a little bit about yourself? Things like:
- What are your hobbies?
- What music do you enjoy?
- What are your favorite TV shows and movies?
- Do you have other interests?
- What is a fun fact about you?
- What is your favorite thing about the MAGIQ-verse?
What are some examples of things to send?
Here are some examples of things you can send (in addition to a letter of course! )
- Washi tape samples
- Travelers notebook inserts
- Tea packets
- Pressed flowers
- Friendship bracelets
What are some examples of other people's pen pal adventures?
Here are a list of people who blog about their pen pal adventures:

So, with that out of the way, post below if you wanna be pen pals with a Mountie!
