Every two weeks, you’ll receive a letter, in the mail. In the first three months letters went out from Stephen Elliott, Margaret Cho, Marie Calloway, Dean Haspeil, Lorelei Lee, Matthew Specktor, Rick Moody, Aimee Bender, Padma Viswanathan, Sari Botton, and Matthew Zapruder. Some of the letters were typed, others handwritten. Some included illustrations, one was a comic, all were signed. We then photocopy the letter and send it to you. You can view sample letters here and here.
Upcoming letter writers will include Leigh Stein, Douglas Kearney, Camille Dungy, Colin Winnette, Brandon Hicks, Wendy C. Ortiz, Anna North, and many more! Think of it as the letters you used to get from your creative friends, before this whole Internet/email thing. Letters will include return addresses (at the author’s discretion) 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.
