The Rumpus Will Mail You a Letter

As literary journals around the world search for new ways to support themselves, The Rumpus has found an unexpected new strategy–readers can subscribe to receive a weekly letter (via postal service) from the literary website.

Check it out: “The Rumpus is finally starting a print subscription. We’d like to say this was the plan all along, but we’ve actually never had a plan. It’s called Letters In The Mail. Almost every week you’ll receive a letter, in the mail. Letter writers will include Stephen Elliott, Janet Fitch, Nick Flynn, Margaret Cho, Cheryl Strayed, Wendy MacNaughton, and Emily Gould. Think of it as the letters you used to get from your creative friends, before this whole internet/email thing.”
