Rules & Regs

  • All types of letters will be accepted by anyone regardless of age, race, ethnicity, language or sex.
  • No negative commenting on the content of the letters will be allowed on this site.
  • You may, however, reply to the letter with a letter similar to or inspired from that letter.
  • The letters are not here for judgment, they are written for expression.
  • Letters can be submitted anonymously, signed with a pen name, nickname, terms of endearment or whatever you choose. I will do everything in my power to insure anonymity for the writer, but I am not responsible if the writer includes something that could give their identity away.
  • To preserve anonymity for ALL parties, I reserve the right to change names of addressees and of that of the writer if I feel identities could be identified.
  • You are MORE than encouraged to write and submit more than one letter.
  • Once you submit the writing to me, it is in my possession, and I claim the right to edit for grammar, spelling and language if need be. I also claim the right to republish all letters on this site and in future publications.
  • As of now, harsh language is permitted, until I have the official say so from a publisher, but on the Web site: whatever you say, goes.
  • Letters do not have to be a specific word count. They can be one sentence to 10,000 words. Say it until you’ve said it all.
  • I will not, by any means, give out anyone’s e-mail address or any other form of identification provided to me. If I am contacted about a letter, I will contact the letter-writer directly. No personal information will be shared.
  • Not all letters will be posted immediately. Postings will be consistent and some letters will be saved for the publishing of the books.

    What a lovely idea! In fact, I’m jealous; it’s a GREAT idea! If things calm down, I’ll try to come back and write a letter I never sent. . . .

    It is nice to know a person can tell their darkest secrets to everyone, but no one can judge you. Wonderful idea!
