Are you looking for a creative outlet to connect and get outside your isolated space? Idaho Writer in Residence Malia Collins and the Idaho Commission on the Arts invite you to be part of a non-virtual (written from the safety of your favorite chair) writing event designed to build community, encourage creativity, provide diversion and, potentially, to relieve some of the emotional weight we are experiencing during this time!

Join Writers in Residences, a pen pal writing project

Register by Friday, August 7 

Sign up by answering a few simple questions at the link below.

After you register, check your mail for the name and address of another Idaho writer as well as your first writing prompt from Malia Collins. Exchange writing with your new pen pal – via the method of communication you and your pal agree on. The initial prompt will be followed by three others, which will arrive via USPS approximately every two weeks.

No writing experience is necessary; prompts will be appropriate for all ages, and all levels of experience. There is no cost to participate, however, you are responsible for outgoing postage.
