Love Letters from the Internet


Actual handwriting from Editor-in-Chief Laura Roberts

Dear Internet,

Despite your best efforts, handwriting is NOT dead. Sending snail mail letters may be a lesser known form, in comparison with email, but communities are popping up everywhere, aided by the Internet, to create a more personal take on postal mail.

Postcrossing and the Letter Writers Alliance are just 2 of my favorites – but more are springing up every day! Exciting new ventures like Chicken Scratch are putting together regular issues of people’s lovely, messy, scratched out handwriting and celebrating the imperfections that humans create.

I LOVE this aspect of technology.

So however illegible my handwriting may be, I hope you never stop connecting me with fellow pen-friends + handwriting enthusiasts!

XOXO, Laura
