30 Letters in 30 Days: Write_On Returns!

It's back! The greatest (in our humble opinion) letter-writing kick-off event in the Pacific Northwest makes its triumphant return to our Portland flagship on Thursday, March 30th. Put on by our good friends at Egg Press, we welcome you to a fun and meaningful evening of community building through letter-writing. 

Write_On is a mission driven campaign to promote joy, creativity, expression, and connection through hand-written correspondence inspired by Egg Press founder Tess Darrow’s challenge to write a letter a day back in 2014. For the third year running, letterpress printers Egg Press & Hello!Lucky have spearheaded the Write_On campaign where snail mail reigns supreme. Since April is National Letter-Writing Month, the challenge at hand is to write 30 letters in 30 days to celebrate the joy of the handwritten word. We have loved hosting the kick-off event for Write_On each year since its inception and are excited to continue the tradition this year! 

Where: Schoolhouse Electric Portland Flagship
When: 6 - 8PM // Thursday, March 30th 2017


{Note: This family-friendly event is free to attend but RSVP's are required because space will be limited.} 

RSVP includes: 

  • A Write_On Letter-Writing Kit (6 letterpress printed cards, 6 envelopes and a Sakura Of America Gelly Roll pen)
