Letter-writing is a lovely, but dying, art that should be revived. Shall we?

We want your soul on little bits of paper.

Love letters, hate letters, short letters, long letters, sexy letters, ugly letters, pretty letters, hurt letters, friendly letters, silly letters, irate letters, poetic letters, letters thrown together in five minutes, gritty letters, sent letters, unsent letters, received letters, found letters, happy letters, sad letters, letters found in drawers and attics and in notebooks from 8th grade, letters on post-its, fancy stationery and balled-up scraps of paper. If you wrote it to someone (even if that someone is yourself), or even if someone wrote it to you, heck, even if you just found it on the street, we want it. Go forth and submit.
Hey, guys. :) I just wanted to give you the heads-up about a neato project that UrbanInsomniac is putting together - 'cause she needs your help!

From Lauren: "Send me funny quotes and I will write them up in nice lettering (turnaround time is unknown)

Example: You can't fight city hall, but you can drive by and egg it.

I have a project: writing quick funny quotes in fancy lettering on the back of index cards, waterproofing them and nailing them to telephone poles along my street (urban, busy, lots of pedestrians).

3 nights ago I posted 'A stitch in time would have confused Einstein' and yesterday someone posted back, on the same telephone pole a printed wiki article with bold letters at the top "Actually, he was okay with it.'"


It's like we're writing little letters to people all over her city! I don't know about you, but I love that idea. I'm off to submit one to her myself - a phrase I once embroidered on a wall hanging: "When life gives you lemons, find someone to throw them at." :*)

For more information, see UrbanInsomniac!

peace,

Is this group more-or-less dead? It really seems like it.

Are postcards okay or just letters? I love writing letters and sending postcards and I recently designed some postcards with quotes about letters on (not in my gallery yet). I was wondering if that was the sort of thing I could submit to the group?

Hello ^.,^

I wanted to ask if I may could be a Contributer (dunno how it will be written exactly, sorry) so that I can help the group?

Hey there. The group doesn't really have contributors, actually; any member can submit any letter and it will be approved to the gallery, so long as it is indeed a letter. Your membership is welcomed, though! I always love to see new letters coming in. :)

Withdrawn? Once I look over a letter (to make sure it's a letter) and accept it into the gallery, it stays there. I've never taken one out of the gallery.

If you mean that they expired, that could be a possibility if you submitted them between July 4 and August 6, as I was unexpectedly away for about a month during that time. Feel totally free to submit them again. If they're letters, they'll be accepted no problem. :) Sorry about that!
