What a fun idea - MORE letter writing. I was pleased to see typewriters are in the mix as well. I've just joined the Alliance (waiting for a reply from my order). How do I go about getting additional penpals from your group? Will this be explained in my membership packet? Waiting on tenter hooks - Stine

Yep, all the info you need will be available through the members-only section of the website. When you get your letter, the log-in information will be there.

Oh my goodness! I am passionate about not letting the handwritten/typewritten letter perish! I am in Canada and seriously considering joining LWA. I have a manual typewriter that I cherish.
