Neither of the sites have been updated for 2016—are we 10-4 that they're both okay…?

Beth

SO EXCITED.

Linda

Disappointed the sites do not reflect 2016!! I've been a participant in this for several years now and don't want to miss it for this year BUT I would want to have the current year on the great looking sticker that I cut & glue on each piece of correspondence.

Vikky

The project doesn't work any more?

I know that Month of Letters is active since I am in contact with the organizer. I cant say the same for InCoWriMo, but there are places putting out packs for InCoWriMo; so I think its probably all about to rev up Feb 1st.

Month of Letters certainly is. Less sure about InCoWriMo.

Thats a great point Linda. Id like stickers too, but a better place to tell them so is on their site. I doubt they look over here. I know they are getting active for February since I have spoken with the organizer.

We're releasing the new participant badge on Sunday. I decided to update it totally, instead of just doing the new date on the old badge. The other aspects of the site should be current though.

I participated in InCoWriMo two years in a row and what I quickly realized was the point is to write letters, NOT establish a correspondence. Out of the 40 plus people I wrote to, two were interested in actually corresponding rather than just sending a letter once. That might be perfect for some people, but it was really disappointing to me.

The last two years, the stationery companies hello! lucky and egg press have done a write_on campaign in April. They send out little free kits with some of their cards and last year Sakura added a gel pen. I don't know if they're planning on doing it again this year. The premise is basically the same as month of letters. But it's hard to do three straight months of letter-writing if you want to participate in them all. Could be a fun challenge though...

Yuri

Can I still write to the people on the list of the InCoWriMo's 2015 "29 people who would Love to receive your letters"? Or better wait until February begins?

Kathy Zadrozny


I dont see why you cant go ahead. After all, itll arrive in February.

It's the 2015 list and this is already 2016 now.
That is why I hesitate using it.

I'm super excited for another year of lettermo! The kit you made is such a cute design, I love it. See you in the mail! >>--->

Kathy Zadrozny


Unfortunately, we dont know them personally. One can hope. Perhaps send them a digital query?
