What began as a simple project roughly a decade ago has changed and remade itself over the intervening years. And 2022 will be a change as well.
Over the past several years, the effort spent trying to encourage people to reach out and write to one another became subsumed under a tidal wave of administration and complexity. This I believe was the farthest thing from its original intent. Good cheer, fun, sharing, and joy. All steadied with a critical dose of passion for the handwritten word, and the instrument that creates it. There is nothing like it on earth. Nothing. Nothing can replace it.
February 2022 is a month to change that.
It still consists in inviting everyone to participate in a project where you write a piece of correspondence and mail it. Once a day, every day, for the month of February.
That’s the simple idea behind the international, correspondence, writing, month.
Every year is a little different. Like this year. There is no address list.
While everything else remains the same, we’ve decided to make it a little more of a challenge.
Instead of a list of addresses. The rules of incowrimo-2022 ask that you:
— write and mail at least one piece of correspondence daily for the month of February.
— the correspondence should be to someone you know or always wanted to write to.
Back to basics.
