Support Typewriter Stories!

As it turns out, sending lots of mail requires lots of postage. And did you know that postage costs money? Me neither. Helloooo. I mowed through an entire booklet of forever stamps in two weeks.

Holy cow. That’s like, twenty stories in two weeks. Rock! (Haven’t heard of the Typewriter Stories yet? Read them here!)

But in order to keep up this totally H-core creation of tiny, funny stories, I need some help. Why? Because holy cow postage is expensive in large quantities. I mean, at 41 cents a pop, it doesn’t seem like much–but add it up over a couple dozen letters and it balloons like my thighs over the holidays.

So, I am asking you, my wonderful people and readers and receivers of typewriter stories: Can you help me?

I’ve determined a couple ways this can be done. First, and easiest, is just to donate using PayPal. Even a single dollar will buy me two-and-a-half stamps. Awesome, right? Cheap? Of course. Here’s the button:


Whoa, so easy it just blows your mind, right?

Optionally, you could buy me some stamps! Now, I’m reluctant to just put my address up on the internet (understandably, I think) so I’ll be getting a P.O. Box that can receive stuff in a week or two.

In the meantime, here is a link to the list of forever stamps on USPS’s website. Just email my Typewriter Stories mailbox at request.a.story(at) if you’re interested in contributing some stamps and I’ll be happy to give you the address.

Thanks in advance, you loverly people!


  1. Kiersi, I think the people you write them for should send you SASE. That seems fair to me. It’s a lot cheaper for them to do that than for you to pay for all of these stories.
