InCoWriMo 2021 Recap

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

In 2021 I received 21 letters from InCoWriMo writers. I started receiving them in January and they continued into early March. In some past years, I have not received a single letter, so this is quite impressive! Although in most years, I have received a couple.

I attribute receiving more this year because of our ability to leave information in the comments along with our addresses (or email). In years past, it was hundreds of names and addresses, but no information about that person. I also got an early start by leaving my information in early January so as more people signed up and read through the list of people, more people could see who the early birds were.

My InCoWriMo mail came from the following places:

  1. Texas
  2. Ohio
  3. Minnesota (2)
  4. Spain
  5. Canada (2)
  6. Arizona
  7. Michigan
  8. Massachusetts (2)
  9. Washington
  10. California (2)
  11. Florida (2)
  12. New York
  13. Illinois (2)
  14. Utah
  15. SC (Address Unknown)

The image below is the unknown sender. Her name is covered with the striped Washi tape I put on when I scanned the envelope. I also covered the PO Box number with Washi. But you can see that the city, state, and zip are covered by the postmark which shows that the sender mailed from South Carolina. If this is you, please send me your full address so I can reply properly.

I sometimes include an address label somewhere on the letter inside in case the envelope gets ripped or marked.

InCoWriMo for me is a way to connect with a variety of people around the world with a shared interest. While most of the correspondences won’t continue indefinitely, it is a fun change of pace to send and receive mail from people we don’t know.

    Hi Jackie! I see my letter in there! I took a very similar photo of all of my letters from InCoWriMo at the end of March, and I’m still receiving some! Letter-writing is truly the gift that keeps on giving! 🙂

      Hi Meaghan. Nice to see you here! Yes, it’s been fun! Glad you’re continuing to receive mail!

    Is incowrimo only for March? I just heard about it and would live to write letters to some, but its April. Would it be unacceptable to write to the addresses in the list now that its passed March?

      Hi Cheryl! InCoWriMo takes place every February, but it is not unusual for people to continue writing after that, especially if the addresses are still being published. In the past they have removed the posted addresses but I think that varies depending on how they’re set up each year. I say “Go for it!”.
