The Magic of Post: Why Snail Mail Is Still the Best Way to Share Poetry
At Poems by Post, we believe in the magic of mail. The excitement of receiving a handwritten letter, the anticipation of flipping through pages of a book or magazine, the thrill of opening a package - all of these are simple pleasures that we sometimes take for granted. Yet, in today's world of instant gratification and digital communication, the art of snail mail seems to be fading away.
That's why we're on a mission to bring back the joy of sending and receiving mail. Our poetry subscription service celebrates the beauty of post and the connections it creates between people.
There's something special about the physical act of sending and receiving a letter. It's a tangible representation of the time and effort that someone has put into reaching out to you. In a world where we're bombarded with emails, texts, and notifications, receiving a letter in the mail is a welcome break from the noise.
At Poems by Post, we take this concept one step further by commissioning original poetry and artwork from grassroots artists. Each month, our subscribers receive a unique and beautiful package containing a hand-typed poem on a vintage typewriter, along with an original piece of artwork and a personalized note from the artist. It's a small way to support these talented individuals while also promoting the art of snail mail.
But it's not just about supporting artists - it's also about connecting people. Sending a letter allows us to slow down and reflect on our thoughts and feelings in a way that digital communication doesn't always allow. It's a chance to show someone you care, to share a moment, and to create a lasting memory.
So why not take a moment to appreciate the beauty of post? Whether it's sending a letter to a friend, subscribing to a snail mail service, or simply taking a walk to your local post office, there are so many ways to celebrate the magic of mail. At Poems by Post, we're honored to be a part of this tradition, and we hope to inspire others to rediscover the joy of snail mail.
