We are relaunching the IABC Pen Pal program!

Do you recall the last time you put pen to paper? Take a break from Zoom calls, social media, emails and all other digital communication means to enjoy some creative rest by writing letters and postcards to your new IABC pen pal.

Writing by hand has several psychological and health benefits and is a great tool for relationship building and self-care.

“For all the cognitive benefits of writing, there is something deeply meditative and artistic that has driven art forms involving handwriting across cultures.” Dr. Claudia Aguirre, neuroscientist and writer for Headspace, explains in her article.

Ready to be matched with a pen pal and build new connections?! Registration is free and exclusive to IABC members worldwide, so the only cost of the program will be postage. Pals will be matched on a rolling basis.
