My friend Naomi and I have started a new project that we're calling What's In An Envelope. Basically, we want to see what kinds of interesting things people can fit into envelopes and send us. Letters, photographs, drawings, poems, stories, mix CDs, be creative--anything you can think of! We'll post what we get on the blog.
We'll leave self-addressed stamped envelopes in bookstores, on trains, maybe even just stick them in random mailboxes, with notes explaining the project, but if this sounds at all interesting to you and you don't happen to find an envelope, we'd LOVE you to contribute to this project. You can email me at email@example.com for an address to send your envelope (any size) to.
I'd also be eternally grateful to anyone spreading the world by blogging about the project, tweeting the link, or just telling your friends about it.
Feedback welcome! You can check out the website here.
