You’ve Got Mail


Author and illustrator Summer Pierre—whose work has been featured here on The Rumpus—wrote a Letter in the Mail about solo road trips for us back in February, and that letter has now been featured on PEN America’s “Illustrated PEN” series.

In case you missed it, you can receive letters in the mail (yes, real paper letters sent by snail mail!) from your favorite writers. And because we love you, if you purchase an annual subscription before June 30, you get a free autographed copy of Laura van den Berg’s Find Me.

You can also order individual past letters, like Summer Pierre’s comic on road trips (because we love you). And remember, programs like LITM, our Book Club and Poetry Book Club, and Letters for Kids help to keep The Rumpus alive. So, you get to support your favorite site and receive awesome letters, books, and opportunities to connect with your favorite writers in one fell swoop!
