We believe that keeping in touch is kind of important. And that’s why we’re moving our comments section here to it’s very own page.

Years past have proved that a good comment section provides timely general information in addition to letting other people know you’re here. Believe it or not for more than a year, incowrimo pretty much functioned from a comment section alone.

Keep in mind it’s our firm belief that if you have something to say to someone  ..send them a letter.

Few things in life are as satisfying as opening your post box to find someone has sent you a letter sharing their ideas and thoughts. And just as nice is the opportunity to write them back.

    This is my first year participating and I’m looking forward to corresponding with others from close to home and around the globe. About me: I’m 36, married, have no kids, and have one adorable dog. I love to hike, read (narrative nonfiction, short stories, fiction), and do puzzles (word, sudoku, jigsaw).

    Hi! This is my first time doing this and I’m really excited ! I love writing letters. I’m retired but never seem to have enough time to do all the things I love like reading, writing, traveling, needlework, photography, and more. I still do some editing work because I love encouraging writers. Favorite things include reading (I’m in several book clubs), tea (favorite is Indian Breakfast tea but it’s hard to get), music, food, tai chi (still a novice). Looking forward to corresponding with people from all over the world.

    Hello Friends!
    I’m so thrilled to be jumping on the incowrimo train with you! Another first-timer here, my husband and I have our giant stash of domestic and international stamps ready to go. I’m very much into journaling (bullet journaling too!), baking, writing, needlefelting, and reading. Always looking for a good book, a great cup of coffee, and a chance to learn something new. I’m super excited about writing letters to some new friends- I feel like we’re a pretty self-selected group of people who refuse to let the handwritten word die. We have to keep the postal services worldwide in business!

    I’m a personal development junkie, and I learn more about how we can take better care of ourselves every day. Turns out letter writing is a great place to slow life down for a little while! Here’s to new friendships, and handwritten letters!

    Such a brilliant idea! It was only yesterday, going round my local shops to stock up on paper & envelopes for what promises to be an exciting month, that I realised that modern retailers assume no-one writes any more! Plenty of envelopes, to be sure, but no paper, nothing to put into those all-enveloping harbingers of news, of friendship, light & love – good job I have some stashed away!
    To join in with the folk who are sharing about themselves on here, I’m a medical secretary who moonlights as a poet & preacher, living in a thin place along the Welsh/English border where invaders have come & gone, but where folk live in harmony with the land & each other – google Kilpeck Church to see the carvings that still speak through the mist to help shape our stories…

    Happy incowrimo! My name is Hannah and I love seeing different varieties of writing and stationary. I collect coins and greatly enjoy exchanging coins with other that might also collect. I also have a vast love for antique glass and tea cups. I would love to connect with anyone and talk about hobbies, recipes, pets, and fascination! Write me and I will write you back!

    Bummer, I put my name and address into the Address Exchange in the email I received. I don’t show up in your address book. I didn’t know there was another place to sign up. I’ve written everyday so far and will continue to do so. I enjoy writing letters and the thrill of seeing a real letter instead of a bill in my mailbox. It makes walking out to the mailbox in below zero weather worth it. Thanks everyone.

    This year is my first time participating, but I’m a life-long penpaller. I’ll turn 40 soon, single woman, no children, besides letters i love reading, music (rock and metal), languages (I can correspond in English, French, Spanish, Catalan, Finnish and Swedish -the last 2 if you don’t mind mistakes, though I write well enough), traveling, photography, crafts, makeup, krav maga, ice hockey, nordic walking, shopping, tattoos, learning new things… I’ll be happy to make some new friends via this event, if anyone wants to write. :) My address should be in the address book (Giselle, from Barcelona, Spain)

    Wow, 8 letters in 8 days. Successful thus far. But none received. If you wish to write to a working musician, I am under Kevin F in Royal Palm Beach,FL.

    This will be my first year participating in incowrimo, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’m Dani Gray, in Seattle WA. I love the pacific north west for its gray skies and rainy days. Most times you will find me, with pen in hand, on the beach. I loooove art (I paint with various media), music, letters, and write poetry and prose. I have a dark sense of humor, and will hand make each envelope I send out!

  10. Hi, Jo Pilsworth here and this is my first year of participating in InCoWriMo. I may have gone a bit crazy so far, as I think I have averaged a couple of letters a day. I discovered writing was quite fun again., not to mention relaxing.

    Take a look


  12. Lisa Mason says:

    I was added to the address book on the very last day and I fear that many participants may have already chosen the people that I plan to write to.


  13. Robert Shaun Schmidt says:

    Hi everyone my name is Shaun and this is my first time participating in Incowrimo. I love to read but have always had bad handwriting and would print or most often type rather than write things. I have recently started writing with fountain pens and have discovered a real joy in writhing that I never seemed to have before. I have a happy little collection going of pens and I am finding any reason to use them. I have many hobbies and one of these has been a love of history and a fascination with the way things were done in the past. I am currently learning a lot about 17th century cooking and lifestyles. I hope to hear from some of you and reach out to others. Remember to live long, smile often, love deeply, and laugh at everything you can.


  14. AC says:

    I was pleasantly surprised to find my address on the shortlist as well and I figured I’d better post a sort of bio to go with it. I’ll reply to all letters I receive, so if anyone is interested in getting mail from a huge island, home of orang utans and proboscis monkeys with huge noses, mine is the only address with SARAWAK in it. I’m on the opposite side of the planet from most participants so I might be still ‘incowrimo-ing’ long after the month is up :) Write on anything you like but if you need ideas, I’d love to hear about:
    @->– why you joined InCoWriMo
    @->– a typical day in your life
    @->– your top 5 (or 10?) quirks
    @->– your favourite music (it might get added to my letter-writing soundtrack on Spotify)
    @->– book recommendations (I tend to like non-fiction, fantasy/horror/sci-fi/crime short stories rather than full-length novels, and quirky books)
    @->– unusual hobbies you have
    @->– recipes for people who don’t cook but want to start
    @->– how to make stubborn plants bloom ;)
    And by the way, if you are enthusiastic about random die-cut ephemera for mail art, small patterned envelopes, Chinese red packets (they can be used for mail art too), tea bags or tiny sticky notes let me know. I have surplus of these items so you’ll probably find a little something enclosed with my letter!


  15. We can assure you that quite a few participants don’t choose until the official list comes out, or during the month of February itself. Given the mathematics of how this project works, the best way to ensure mail in your letterbox is by writing a letter every day.


  16. Sharon Ripperger says:

    Just a quick question….last year was my first time participating and I requested that my address remain on the list after February. Do I need to do anything to ensure that continues in subsequent years?


  17. No, not really. If you’d like it taken off you can refill the updates and corrections information letting us know.


  18. Jane K Wendell says:

    Just got a lovely postcard from JANE TURNER….the corner with your complete address is missing. I want to write back, but I didn’t find you in the database. Please, if you see this, email me at Thank you!


  19. Sharon Ripperger says:

    Thanks, that’s what I thought, just wanted to make sure I stayed on! :)


  20. Nancy says:

    I was so thrilled about receiving my first letter yesterday!!! (Feb 16). THANK you Sean! I am only one day off schedule in sending, and I went to the post office yesterday to see what was available in the way of stamps. Back to writing. :-)
