    I haven’t written my leettrs yet, but I found this list of guidelines to make sure your leettrs reach their destination. State laws might vary but these are good suggestions.Nervous about your first letter? Don’t be! Prisoners often say how much they enjoy hearing about someone’s day-to-day activities and interests. This is often the easiest and most important thing you can do to support people in prison. Many say they also enjoy receiving news articles (photocopied or printed from the web). The most important thing is to just get the letter in the mail. Once you send that first letter, each one that follows will be easier to write. Send a postcard, artwork, talk about your day, just please remember a few things:All leettrs must have a return address on the envelope.Please also put a return address on the letter itself, as prisoners are almost never given the envelopes.Please do not mention other nicknames you might know them by.Do not discuss their cases or anything related to illegal activities. Keep in mind that all mail is read by authorities.Pictures are allowed, but must be 4 6 size or smaller. No Polaroids.Most facilities will NOT accept stamps or envelopes mailed to prisoners. Please check with the institution.Avoid using white-out, stickers, tape, colored ink or glitter.Written correspondence and drawings may be in pencil, standard ink pen, typewritten, or computer generated. No felt pens, markers, crayon, or colored pencil, etc.All personal artwork must be in black & white, copied pages can be in color.PLAIN cards are allowed. However, you must write something inside of the card, as blank ones will be returned.Most facilities do not allow torn pages from books, magazine or newspaper clippings. Photocopies, however, are acceptedPlease always remember that, even if unsolicited, mail can still result in sanctions against a prisoner.
