Welcome to Snail Mail Stories! In a world of email, texting, Facebook, and twitter, sending letters through the post is a dying art. In an effort to combat this, I have created Snail Mail Stories, a collaborative storytelling system done entirely through the mail. The first letter was sent out in February, 2015, and many more have been sent and received!
The premise behind this project is twofold: first, to bring back an insurgence of letter writing, and second, to experiment with collaborative writing. My goal is to watch stories unfold when the authors have no contact about the stories, when each chapter is written based on what is received.
Please enjoy these stories, and take inspiration from them! Who knows, perhaps you’ll write a letter yourself 😉
