BookPenPals has more schools than it does Pen Pals. The pairing for 2019-20 will happen in September. If you are not able to be paired with a "snail mail" Pen Pal, you'll still receive exclusive digital postcard recommandations from our Pen Pals.

If you are already paired up, we'll update your account automatically with the pairing information after you confirm your email.

Please note, for now, we can only accept authors and illustrators with industry-recognised publication credentials, who are UK or Ireland focused. Debut authors/illustrators and traditional small presses are welcome. The "industry-recognised" requirement is because we must ensure quality but cannot review the work of every creator that wishes to join.

If you have any further comments about your sign up to BookPenPals, please email
