Allies in the letter-writing crusade

Sometimes the people who write by hand can feel like they're the last ones left on earth who believe that pen and paper are the best way to communicate.  Not true! There are a lot of writers and readers out there thinking on this topic--and publishing, blogging, speaking, giving workshops, and, naturally, writing letters. 

I've been heartened by the tenacity of my fellow snail-mail support group.  Here are a few:
  • Cindy Zimmerman, mail advocate,
  • Jodi Smith, etiquette consultant,
  • Mary Robinette Kowal, puppeteer and author, 
  • Vimala Rogers, handwriting advocate,
  • Inga Dubay and Barbara Getty, handwriting educators,

You can check out their websites to keep track of what they are doing.  You won't need to bemoan that "nobody writes by hand any more" and "penmanship is a dying art" if you simply pick up your pen join the ranks of writers who send their words by mail.  Join us!
