The Write Back Soon Club

There is a wonderful post over at Anne Thompson Designs on The Write Back Soon Club. She goes into detail about how she found herself creating a fantastic gift for her two children and their two cousins last Christmas. Not only did it include personalizing the creation of their letter writing kits but also enrolling them in their own Write Back Soon Club!

Absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE her Welcome Letter she created and included with each of their letter writing kits.  It includes:

“… Letters are special for many reasons. Anyone can write a letter, even kids. You don’t have to have your parents’ permission, or ask to borrow their phone or use a computer. You can sit down, and write to someone you’re thinking of without very much – if any – help.  Letters are a way to connect with someone. You get to share what you’re thinking and ask about them.” …

In her blog post, she shares “I found a couple of books about correspondence and gave one to each set of siblings to share. (here’s one, and another.)”

The books about correspondence she is referencing are: Write Back Soon! Adventures in Letter Writing by Karen Benke, from 2015; and also from 2015 – Snail Mail: Rediscovering the Art and Craft of Handmade Correspondence, by Michelle Mackintosh.

Anchors Aweigh,
