InCoWriMo 2020

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my Privacy and Disclosure Notice for more information.

According to the founder, this is the last year they are hosting InCoWriMo, otherwise known as International Correspondence Writing Month which is February. Basically the challenge is to embrace letter writing by writing and sending a card, letter, or postcard every day for the month of February. You can create a list of people to send to or follow the recommendations of someone else’s challenge, such as the one featured on the Goulet Pen Company’s recent post, How To Participate in InCoWriMo 2020.

Here’s a link to the updated 2020 InCoWriMo (Thanks, Mia!).

Here’s a link to my last year’s post sharing information and information and links to previous posts about InCoWriMo on this blog. There’s a bit more information for those not familiar with this annual tradition.

The 2020 InCoWriMo Facebook page says:

Join us over the course of 29 days as we share in the adventure of crafting handwritten letters to spread encouragement, reconnect with loved ones, and build good writing habits!

If you’re looking for who is sharing information on their InCoWriMo journey, use the hashtag #InCoWriMo on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc to see what others are up to for InCoWriMo 2020.

The Day 1 prompt on Facebook for InCoWriMo says to start a letter with “Once upon a time”. Done. Now who to write to tomorrow? Who are you writing to? If you’d like a postcard, email me your address and I will send you one. Sometimes I receive many responses and sometimes just a few, so I will say here that I will cap this at 25 mailings and the requests must be received by Feb 29, 2020. Find me at Jackie (at) LettersandJournals (dot) com.

Here’s the link to take you to the 2020 Address Page where you can find people to write to, and/or list your own address.

    I must confess that I’m a bit confused between “InCoWriMo” and “LetterMo”… I don’t do any of those; but usually I finish every month and I’ve send more or less a postcard/letter a day 😀

    I wouldn’t mind you sending a postcard. I’m going to mail you my address!

      Hi Eva, I agree about the confusion on LetterMo and InCoWriMo. I think it’s just a matter of two different people each starting their own thing and seeing what happened. I received your email and will get a postcard off to you this week. Thank you!

        And it arrived today 😀

    InCoWriMo.org is still up and running. It has done since 2013 apart from 2016 and it was that year the alternative site was set up. Admittedly InCoWriMo’s founder was late to set up the address exchange page, and I wasn’t sure it would be in time.

      Thanks for the update, Mia. I’m glad to hear that it did get set up. When I visited the site, I did not find my way to the address section, so I must be missing something. I appreciate you’re sharing your information. Thank you!

    Thanks for sharing that link! That is the first I am seeing it. I never saw any reference to it on the previous site. I will update my blogs to link to this. Thank you for taking the time to post it here!
