If we don't have an instagram account, can we email the LWA about an item we see and want?

Donovan Beeson

Well mostly be paying attention to Instagram, but if something doesnt sell there and we see your email, then yes?
This is new for us. Sorry for the waffly answer.


Some of us don’t use social media, so we miss out on things. Will you have a new studio?

Donovan Beeson

We get that and are sorry for the disappointment. It is very likely some items will end up in a listing on the website. In a way, we're being more inclusive with the online offering, otherwise, only people willing to come to Chicago would be able to participate in the sale.

Donovan Beeson

Unless we find a really sweet deal somewhere, the studio is probably returning to one of our houses.


If you are really selling something large/heavy like a typewriter, is there a possibility to pick up the item if the buyer lives in the Chicago area, rather than paying to have it shipped only a few miles? Thanks for offering the sale--I'm really excited!

Donovan Beeson

100%! But I think you figured that out already!

LWA Mission

    In this era of instantaneous communication, a postal letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance was dedicated to preserving this art form through fostering community and communication through the mail. Membership was active from Summer 2007 to Summer 2020. Write more letters!

The Management

  • D+K2
    The L.W.A. was established in 2007 by Kathy Zadrozny & Donovan Beeson. These two ladies managed every aspect of the Alliance, from design, to packing orders, to maintaining the website. The L.W.A. is a labor of love and we are happy you have joined us in sharing a love for letters.
