LWA Virtual Mail Social all day today: Sunday, February 8!

Today's the day! Today's the day! All day today - Sunday, February 8, whatever the 24 hours of Sunday are for you, wherever you are - the Letter Writers Alliance is having a Virtual Mail Social.

In celebration, I'll be writing mail much of the day today!

You can play along by using the hashtag #LWAsocial on Twitter and Instagram. The main event is a Live video social and chat at 4pm EST / 3pm Central time. This is their second such event - the first was in December, and I was utterly tickled by how delightful it was: great, great fun. I really enjoy the camaraderie of seeing all the tweets and photos from other letter lovers writing mail at the same time, and it inspires me to write, too. So I'm participating already, and encourage anyone else who is interested to join the fun.

Love this #postcard from the National Postal Museum #npm

Also built into the video social will be a chat window, and the instagram feed for #LWAsocial. I had been toying with the idea of joining instagram for a while now, and this was the final push I needed. So yesterday I joined up, and now you can find me on instagram as missivemaven. There's sure to be much mail and many cats in my instagram feed. And I'll be posting lots of photos of my #LWAsocial mail there.

Happy #LWAsocial day! Join the fun! Write more letters! And maybe I'll see you at the LWA Virtual Social at 4pm EST today.

  1. I was impressed with how quick you were to find links and post them during the social! My feed failed right before the end, so I didn't get a chance to thank everyone.

    1. Well, I wasn't actually writing any mail at the time - just watching the video and the chat! Glad the links were helpful. It was great fun!

  2. Any idea how many letters the hosts wrote during the session?

    1. They talked about that sometime after Mary left - the whole video should be archived online, so for the accuracy-obsessed, there is that to consult. I recall that Kathy wrote zero (she was addressing postcards) and Donovan wrote maybe 4 or so.

  3. I just got this postcard a while back from a Postcrosser. :) I wanted to thank you for linking to my blog. I've seen that a lot of people have come over from your blog. Thanks a lot!
