let’s connect

Connecting through writing

Hi, we're Penpal! We're on a mission to get people of all ages feeling more connected to their friends, family, community and to themselves through the lost art of letter writing.

The paradox of our times is that while we're more socially networked online, we're reporting feeling more isolated and disconnected than ever before. We all know the feeling!

Taking the time to pick up a pen and write to someone you're thinking about gives a huge boost to the emotional and mental wellness of both the writer and the recipient in a way that a like button, text or email just can't beat.

So please join us as we dream up fun epistolary events designed to foster more meaningful connections through writing! xoxo Kiwa
