Now that I am committed to writing more letters, I really want to find more pen pals. So, I decided to join the Letter Writer’s Alliance. I don’t remember where I first heard about the Alliance, but I remember it sounding like an excellent (and secure) way to find pen pals. After a short period of researching, I decided to get the membership. (I also got my good friend a membership, but I really just want her to write to me!) Once I received my membership in the mail, I signed up to get a pen pal and it only took them a couple of days to match me with someone! This will be my first real pen pal, so I hope everything goes smoothly.
