BBC News

Today the League of Extraordinary Penpals is featured in a wonderful article on the BBC News website!

Signed, sealed, delivered - Rediscovering the allure of a pen pal in the digital age:
The allure of an old-fashioned pen pal

I had the pleasure of doing a phone interview with Kate Dailey earlier this week, who discovered the club thanks to LEP member and fellow writer Marianne Kirby.

Some other LEPeeps are also featured, and some photos of our letters & envelopes have been published, so you don't want to miss this!

And to anyone who's seeing this after reading the article from BBC News: hello and welcome to the wonderful world of snail mail and letters and stamps and washi tape! If you have any questions about anything at all (and yes, we can also discuss books and the meaning of life if you want), please get in touch with me!

I'm so happy when traditional mail gets attention from the media. Yes, letter writers still exist - and we're having a lot of fun!

  1. Julie, this is wonderful. Well done, everybody! (I am delighted to say I immediately recognised the envelope-maker of Sofie's lovely mail.) :)
