International Correspondence Writing Month, or InCoWriMo for short, is a
month dedicated to exploring the joys of written correspondence.
Some may say that snail mail is over– a throwback to a prior era,
unnecessary in a world full of tweets, texts, and email. While we’re not against

replace the handwritten word. And while receiving a letter is a
beautiful thing, writing one is arguably equally as fun. So this February,

Join writers of the world by picking up your fountain pens and ink and scribing letters to friends near and far.
