    Sign ups for the next three months are starting now. It will be for the months of May, June, and July.

    For each month, participants will be given a topic-something to discuss in your pen pal letter, as well as a twist. The twist is something little that you send to your pen pal as a special treat. Twists ideas in the past have been-sending your pal something based upon a certain holiday, sending your pen pal something edible from your state, .....

    Participants are required to check in weekly. This is to ensure that your pen pal, and I know that you are still around. And, you are to check your pm box, as well as to scan the thread so just in case there are questions, or posts for you, you can answer them, and are aware of what is going on in the exchange. Let me know if you will be away during the exchange period, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    Sign ups will be till Monday March 25th. I will put the names, and info. together, and send it out to all participants in April. We usually like to start writing/sending out letters/twists the month before. So for our first month of May, you will be able to start sending towards the ending of April-the SECOND SATURDAY of May. Each months letter/twist will have the due date of the second SATURDAY of each month to be sent by.

    To join in, please pm me the below info.

    I think it depends on the destination, and also on the weight. But if you put a light weight item together with the letter, there is not much of a difference then if you were sending something small in size within the U.S.
