Every two weeks, you’ll receive a letter in the mail. Some of the letters are typed, others handwritten. Some include illustrations, some include comics, all are signed. We then photocopy the letter and send it to you. You can view sample letters here and here.
Recent and upcoming letter writers include Celeste Ng, Nicole Chung, Tayari Jones, Leesa Cross-Smith, R. O. Kwon, Sam Irby, Maggie Smith, Laura Lippman, Lydia Kiesling, and many more! Think of it as the letters you used to get from your friends before this whole Internet/email thing. Letters will include return addresses in case you want to write the author back! Letters in the Mail helps us keep The Rumpus running—so, you can correspond with your favorite writers and support the website in one fell swoop.
