Letters & Journals: The Magazine

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

woman holding a letter on at deskAfter years of dreaming and planning, the premiere issue of Letters & Journals magazine is here! It went through more than a few revisions these past few years, and, while I envisioned a print magazine, that just wasn’t feasible at this time (hopefully, the future will see the print edition of Letters & Journals).

Currently, the plan is to publish two issues per year and charge $2.99 to read and download. The first issue is free to all so that the magazine can be shared with as many people as possible.

Please let us know what you think, what articles, columns, and departments you would enjoy seeing in the magazine, and other ideas that may come to you.

Hello! I love all things stationery, papery, epistolary including planners, office supplies, mail, postcards, doodles, desks and organization, postage stamps and mail art.

    Jackie, just finished reading the first issue. Very much enjoyed it, thank you! 🙂 Made a note of a couple of stationary suppliers to check out too. Just a note regarding the article about typewriters, they do still make them, We Are Memory Keepers bought out a colourful selection of typewriters, called Typecast, I have the pink one!

      Thanks, Tammie! That’s a good point about the new kinds of typewriters they’re making. If I end up doing a revision on the magazine, I will update that section.

    Hi Jackie,

    Drop in for a visit & the Magazine was posted! Loved it I did not see where to sign up for updates and the next issue

    Also, have you asked LEX(Letter Exchange) about a link? They have a blog from the Mailstrom that would be a nice way to let Letter Writers know about the Magazine.

      Thanks for visiting, Hester! I love that idea about reaching out to LEX (I’m a current subscriber). I am updating my website copy to encourage newsletter sign-ups since that will be the best way for me to reach people. Thank you for inquiring about that.

    Lovely first issue! As much as I love writing letters by hand, I would love a typewriter.

    • Jackie on November 7, 2020 at 2:02 pm

      Thank you! Keep on the lookout for a typewriter, or check online to see if you have a local typewriter shop that may have some for purchase.

    I liked it! Well done!!
    I copied the link to A World of Snail Mail for other members to enjoy it, is that okay?

    However, I can not download it so I can read it in a larger format – age and eyesight is an issue I’m afraid.

      Thanks for your message and for sharing the link. That is much appreciated! There are a few different options for enlarging and for downloading. When you’re on the Issuu website where the magazine lives, you can click on the icon in the bottom right hand corner while you’re reading the magazine and that will make it full screen. Or I can email you a copy of the downloaded PDF if you prefer. I will reach out by email and you can let me know. Thank you!

        Thank you, an email would be great!

    Hello! I absolutely love this! I found you through Natural Awakenings via Long Island NY. I cannot consider myself an addict based on the definitions but I have thought to myself “I wish I knew someone that loved the way a nice pen feels on a quality piece of paper. It is so satisfying. I literally bought myself the first pack of “nice” pens ever two weeks ago. I have been journaling all my life and recently started my nine and ten year old boys in their own process. I want them to grow up knowing the magic of pen and paper. They resisted at first but it is part of the routine and they now glady jump in bed to do. I really enjoyed the examples of paper at the end. It is like a special treat to look forward to. I will be inquiring about the letter writing social events. I wonder if you will be doing a parents corner page that can include a nugget for preteen and teenager or perhaps just a couple of references to resources? I thoroughly enjoyed it and Congratulations on your new venture!

      Thanks, Cynthia! I love the idea of a Parent’s Corner. Thank You! I might include that in issue #2. Thanks also for sharing where you heard about L&J. Much appreciated! I will respond to your question about letter writing socials separately.
