Some awesome news - Letter Writers Alliance is participating in Atlas Obscura Day. What's Atlas Obscura Day, you ask? And what's Atlas Obscura? Well, Atlas Obscura is a "compendium of the world's wonders, curiosities and esoterica" and Atlas Obscura Day is when we all try to get out and explore them.
We will be hosting a social at the Read/Write Library from 2PM-5PM on April 28th. This social will be a bit different than usual. For starters, we're going to ask you to R.S.V.P. on the official Atlas Obscura Day site. A ticket will be $5; some of which will go to support Atlas Obscura and some of which will get you an Atlas Obscura Day L.W.A. membership which comes with a badge, limited edition membership card, and special artistamp. You can read more info on the event at the LWA blog and on the Letter Social page on the Atlas Obscura site.
We have two socials happening next month, one where we will be giving away a typewriter! This will take place in Champaign-Urbana's Mini-Maker Fair. For those of you who can't make it either, here is some info to sooth your soul. Many of our LWA members are located outside of Chicago. In fact, our members are so spread out Donovan & I have been working hard on the Community aspect of the Letter Writers Alliance. We know that members want to know who they share their badge with, so we have been creating a "Our Community" section in the member site.
Now, I already shared this infographic about the people who make-up the LWA community on the Letter Writers Alliance blog, but I thought you all would also be interested in this information. I'm also quite proud of my first ever infographic and I hope you like it too!
P.S. - For those of you who live in Illinois we're going to be giving away a typewriter in mid-April, so stay tuned!
