Write One Letter & Get Five Letters Back from The Rumpus

When was the last time you wrote a letter? If you write one letter, you will get five letters back in a new program from The Rumpus.

The Rumpus successfully tested the Letters To Each Other program earlier this year, so the literary site has opened up the letter-writing experience to all readers. This GalleyCat editor already mailed his letter. Here are all the details, from The Rumpus founder Stephen Elliott‘s email newsletter:

You send in a letter, single page (double sided OK) and include a regular size #10 self addressed stamped envelope. We’ll make copies of all the letters and send five letters back to you in the stamped envelope you provided. Please include at least $2 to cover the cost of copying, pizza for envelope stuffers, etc. Easy peezy. Send one letter, get five letters back. Send your letter to: Karen Duffin, 3288 21st Street #202, San Francisco, CA 94110. Letters must be postmarked no later than June 15. If you don’t live in the United States please make a donation using Paypal for at least $3. Print out the receipt for your donation and include it with your letter and self addressed envelope. International letter writers don’t need to include a stamp on their return envelope.
