"Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart."
- William Wordsworth
"The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought,
this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps
us regain our equilibrium. " - Norbet Platt
"Ink on paper is as beautiful to me as flowers on the mountains."

The Letter Writers Alliance, a Chicago, Illinois organization that promotes the art of letter writing through social gatherings and other events.
Founded in 2007 by Kathy Zadronzny and Donovan Beeson, with over 3,000 card-carrying members and many more unregistered fans, the L.W.A. mission states:
"In this era of instantaneous communication, a handwritten letter is a rare and wondrous item. The Letter Writers Alliance is dedicated to preserving this art form; neither long lines, nor late deliveries, nor increasing postal rates will keep us from our mission."
To that we say, "Write on, sisters."
