One of the things I used to do growing up was writing to a penpal from far, far away. I got to thinking earlier this year that over the summer, I wanted to try to do some penpalling again. So I began researching it. I came across several sites where those that are interested can find others interested in penpalling.
Here’s a list of places you can find penpals.
Penpal World – this is the one I found to be the best and easiest to use.
Global Pen Friends
You can also go to instagram and look for posts with these hashtags:
#penpalswanted #penpalsneeded #penpalling
If you’re kids are looking to write, Students of the World appears to be a great place for children to find a penpal. Start them early!

Keep an eye out for more penpalling posts. I am excited to have a penpal now. Love the feeling of my hand out to fall off from handwriting my letters.

Hey Lysha. Long time lurker/ first time poster. I was just reading this and saw your list of penpal sites. One other site that I found useful was penpalsnow.com. Got a few snail mail friends on there 🙂
