Author Pen Pals Author/Illustrator Sign Up Form 2024

Please take a moment to read the following before completing the form: 

Thank you for your interest in becoming an author or illustrator pen pal for the 2024 school year and being as passionate as we are about inspiring children and encouraging the love of literature. We're so excited to take our new initiative into its second year and that you'll hopefully be a part of it.

Author Pen Pals is about fun for all!

As you will see from the website, you are required to send just FOUR postcards or letters to your pen pals in 2024. There is NO OBLIGATION for you to send anything else.

However, if you want to write to your class or classes more often, have Zoom calls or competitions, or send copies of your books or other material, that is your choice and, of course, at your expense.

We ask schools to reply to you a minimum of twice. As with anyone, life happens, demands increase, and staff change, so this commitment may not be met. But even if you don’t receive a response from your school, it’s likely that your correspondence has been received and read by the kids, inspiring them to pick up a book. Making this kind of impact on someone's life is exactly what this program is all about.

We understand that life sometimes gets in the way for you, too. So, if your circumstances change at any time throughout 2024 and you need us to make alternative arrangements for your pen pals, please email Kate and Dee at

And finally, please have a thorough read of our website first so you know what you can expect and what's expected of you. Once you've completed and submitted the form, we will be in touch early 2024 to let you know what happens next and how to choose the school or schools you wish to pair with. 

Thanks again!
