WHAT IS THE SECRET SOCIETY OF LETTER WRITERS?

The Secret Society of Letter Writers is a free club for children ages 3-14. The Secret Society exists to promote letter-writing through writing prompts set by Master Boddington, its creator, and by matching children with pen pals around the world. The Secret Society of Letter Writers is free for all children.

HOW MAY I SIGN UP FOR THE SECRET SOCIETY?

You may sign up here on our website. Once we have received and processed your request, you will be mailed your invitation and guardian permission form. Please do not submit your child to join the society multiple times! If you are unsure if your request has processed, please email sslw@mrboddington.com

WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR MEMBERSHIP? IS THERE AN AGE MINIMUM/MAXIMUM?

Though there is no “official” age minimum to join, we recommend waiting to sign your child up until they are able to write by themselves. Children over 14 years of age may not join the club.

I SIGNED UP FOR THE SECRET SOCIETY BUT DIDN’T RECEIVE ANYTHING IN THE MAIL. WHY IS THIS?

The waiting time between mailings is typically 1-2 months. If, after two months, you have not received your invitation, please contact headquarters.

FIDDLESTICKS, I LOST MY MEMBERSHIP CARD, WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Fear not, Master Boddington keeps a record of each member and their membership number. Simply send us an email at sslw@mrboddington.com and we will respond with your number.

OH DEAR, I’VE LOST MY ASSIGNMENT FROM MASTER BODDINGTON. WHAT SHALL I DO?

Master Boddington updates our website here with each month’s assignment. Simply respond to the challenge and post it to us here at headquarters!

I SIGNED UP FOR A PEN PAL, BUT HAVEN’T RECEIVED ONE YET. WHY IS THIS?

The waiting time to receive a pen pal is typically 2-3 months. If, after three months, you have not received a pen pal please contact headquarters.

I HAVE A PEN PAL, BUT THEY HAVEN’T RESPONDED TO MY LETTERS. WHAT CAN I DO?

Oh dear, we are terribly sorry to hear your pen pal has yet to respond! Please contact headquarters at sslw@mrboddington.com if you are having issues with your pen pal.

I’M NOT INTERESTED IN A PEN PAL, MAY I STILL BE PART OF THE SECRET SOCIETY?

Absolutely! You may still participate in the Secret Society even if you’re not interested in a pen pal.

I’M A TEACHER/SCOUT LEADER/FENCING COACH. MAY I SIGN ALL OF MY PUPILS UP FOR THE SECRET SOCIETY?
