Postcard Plays: An Equinox Project

September 22, 2014

While cleaning house this summer I ran across boxes of old blank cards: postcards, advertisement cards, vacation cards, thank you cards, holiday cards, get well cards, blank cards, funny cards, and sad cards.

These cards are reminders of my past ambitions to stay in touch, ambitions that have become more present as time goes by and people scatter to the four winds.

As I looked at the pile of cards, ready for the recycle bin, I realized that all of these cards have one thing in common: they want to be mailed.


So…if you’d like a card:

Private message me your address either via facebook, twitter, or davewhiteplaywright(at); I will write a short play on a card and mail to it you (at no cost to you!).

There are 180 cards (maybe more) so from Fall Equinox to Spring Equinox I will write one card a day.

You are welcome to send me a writing prompt, but this is not required.

I will most likely document this project online, but would love to share some work in a form replete with smudges and the impressions left by a pen.

Besides, it would be good to be in touch.

    Thank you for the beautiful post card. I’d reply in kind but there was no return address.
    Have a great one,

      Hi Ana, Thanks for letting me know it arrived safe. I ran out of room for including my address on the cards, but I will email you with my address, just in case you’d still like to send one my way. Best, dave
