Pen Pals

Pen pals are back in style in a new and creative way, thanks to a gal named Janette Lane and the growing sensation of her Pocket Letter Pals network.

Pen pals connect by signing up on the free network, where they can also create a profile, join groups, receive news, and message other members.
