I know this may seem hard to believe, but back in the day, people used to write letters. Like with their hands. And a pen and paper. Not a computer. Weird, right? Well, it’s all true and some people even still enjoy doing it. Writing, I mean. So much so that they want to find other people to write to and keep the age old institution of pen pal-ery! And make it geeky pen pal-ery!

Two geeky ladies, Farquharson & Darling Stewie, have started the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club for this purpose. The club will match geek girls together and spread geekiness and fandom throughout the globe with the exchange of letters. From the IGGPPC website:

Any lady over 13 can join up so add your name, location (please include city and country so we aren’t pairing you up with someone two towns over!), email and your top five geek loves (these can be anything from film, TV, comics, books, anime etc) and we will pair you up so you can start writing and hopefully make some sweet new friends!

You can sign up until April 1st and then the fun will begin. The club encourages girls to exchange geektastic letters, as well as the occasion small ware. It’s the Year of the Fan Girl, so stock up on that personalized Batman stationery and get ready for some Star Wars stickers!
