Five Minute Friday Snail Mail

Do you love getting snail mail? In a world driven by technology and instant messaging possibilities, it’s always fun to get an actual note in the mail, don’t you agree?

Four times a year, Five Minute Friday organizes a cycle of snail mail correspondence, in which you get the opportunity to both send and receive cards among other members of the FMF community.

It’s called #fmfpartysnailmail, and it’s been going on for several years!

Here’s how the FMF snail mail works:

1, During the open registration period, sign up to be part of that particular round of #fmfpartysnailmail. One round typically lasts 5-6 weeks.

2. After the registration period closes, you’ll receive a list of 5 or 6 names and addresses of other #fmfpartysnailmail participants.

3. Send one snail mail card or letter per week for the duration of that round according to the instructions you’ll receive, until you have sent one card to each name on your list.

4. Enjoy receiving one card per week from the members in your group!

Interested? Sign up here to be on the waiting list to get notified the next time a round of snail mail opens up.
