A Month of Letters

Hugo Award-winning author and professional puppeteer Mary Robinette Kowal started a delightful challenge, during a month-long hiatus from the Internet in 2010, to correspond with her via letter. That has grown to become A Month of Letters, which runs for the whole of February. During the next month, I and the other 6,000 people who’ve signed up to participate will be writing letters, post cards, and doing other creative things and dropping them into the mail.

I love to write longhand — the feel of the paper beneath my fingers, the consideration that goes into inscribing each character — and this gives me a wonderful reason to do so. That’s where you come in. I’m looking for more people to write to — the more the merrier. If you would like to receive a genuine, hand-written letter from yours truly, send me your address. Email me, message me on Twitter or Facebook, or use my contact form.

This is an opportunity to rekindle friendships and make new ones, without the limitations of Twitter or the haste of email. Let’s write!

If you’re too shy to write a letter to Adam, but you want to write a letter to someone who really needs one? Maybe you could write a Letter to Noah. — Mac
