Calling anyone who loves writing and keeping in touch. This group is dedicated to those interested in letter writing, snail mail, and mail art. Our goal is to keep putting pen to paper, typing, and keeping the written word alive. This includes all forms of correspondence. We host regular letter writing socials and special events throughout Tampa Bay. We look forward to meeting everyone and bringing the joys of letter writing to as many folks as possible. Everybody brings something to share and we have a monthly theme. How cool is that?
Come learn the answers to these questions and more:
- How can I find a pen pal?
- How can I find a letter writing club in my area?
- What is a passport?
- What is an artistamp?
- What are other letter writing resources?
The Tampa Bay Letter Writers are a group of everyday people who are not afraid to go rogue and unplug from the digital realm. Once a month we embrace our love of the written word and gather together to pen missives.
- Gatherings are the last Saturday of the month at The Paper Seahorse
- Bring your favorite pens and paper
- Bring your own postage
- Phones down, pens up! We want you to truly unplug. So please keep screens to a minimum and use this time to put your pens to paper.
- Pick one of many writing nooks provided and write your letters, Thank You notes, holiday cards, etc.
- Stationery trading is encouraged (hoarders will be mocked)
- Libations will flow
- Magic will be made
