GEEK GIRL PEN PALS

Geek Girl Pen Pals

Where geeks and snail mail collide

Founded in March 2013, the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club (aka IGGPPC) was designed to bring together the geek community through shared interests in all things geeky, a love of stationery, and an interest in making friends.

The IGGPPC is a mixture of a love of snail mail and letter writing, geekery and fangirling, some curlie-wurlies, a dollop of mischievous curiosity, and a splash of tomfoolery.

OwlCrate March 2018: Across The Galaxy **Spoilers**

Let's talk about March's OwlCrate: Across the Galaxy. I would like to preface this post with the fact that I cried while opening this box. I know I have said it in the past but this was my favorite OwlCrate by far! Two things you should know about me. I love the color purple and I am obsessed with galaxy print things. This box made all of my purple/galaxy print dreams come true.

A chat with Jamila Rowser, writer of Wash Day comic now on Kickstarter

This week we are excited to share Wash Day, an upcoming slice-of-life comic from writer Jamila Rowser, one of the co-founders of Geek Girl Brunch, Straight Outta Gotham, and more. The Kickstarter for this comic was fully funded in less than 48 hours (WOW!) but you have until May 4th to back it and get some really cool perks! This week we had a chance to chat with Jamila about the comic, what she's working on now, and of course her current geek loves. 

Geeks love: Ukulele

The ukulele (uke) is a small fretted instrument that, we’ll admit it, kinda looks like a small guitar. Modern ukes were developed from the Portuguese machada (or machete), which was brought over to Hawaii in the 1800s by settlers. Introduced to North America through the Panama-Pacific Expo in 1915, the uke became a popular addition to jazz bands in the 1920s, and has fans all over the world, particularly in Japan.
