Hi Holly,

welcome to WAP. How about just browsing the ads? Search an inmate and then go to "advanced search", take whichever of the criteria you like (there is, for example, one that shows you the "needs mail" list of prisoners getting little or no mail) and find yourself someone?

Ppl on the "needs mail" list might probably be the happiest to hear their name on mail call...

Happy writing,

Hello, my name is Noel.
I am a 36 year old charismatic latino male who knows how to keep a good conversation going. 
I like trying new things in life and being open minded. I do not judge because nobody is perfect and I understand that
life sometimes changes us. I definitley respect anyone who has been through tough times and still caries on living their
life to the fullest. You only have one life right so why not make it a great one. I am very passionate about Art as I am
an artist myself. I like drawing anything and everything that pops into my head like portraits of loved ones, characters,
and beautiful places; you name it I can probably draw it. I am also a big animal lover. Anything from your fluffy dogs and
cats to exotic reptiles, snakes, scorpions and everything in between. I'm very much in awe of my surroundings like nature.
I enjoy the beuty of everything and everyone around me.   
I'm not looking for anyone or anything specific, but hopefully I find someone who will be a positive influence in my life
as I intend to be one in yours. We've all made mistakes and I intend to grow from and move past them to start a new 
chapter in my life. If you'd like to get to know me and become friends send a letter my way. Hope to hear from you soon.
Sincerely, Noel.

You can create a profile (ad) for your brother by going to 'list an inmate' at the top of this page, or click here:

An ad costs 50 dollar and will be up for one year, it will get your brother some pen pals

Good luck!

Hi I’m writing this for my brother who is currently serving a sentence at coyote ridge correctional in Washington state. He’s getting lonely and looking for a penpal . If you could please check out the profile I made for him and his address to write him a letter is there :) he’s youngish (almost 27) but has always preferred conversing with ppl more experienced and drama free. 

If you have any other questions before writing, I will be checking the email I made for him frequently : codylan92 [at] gmail [dot] com

Thanks for yur time Holly!

There still seems to be a lot of confusion on how to use this service, so just to explain :

If you are looking for pen pals FOR an inmate, you do not use the forums.  Using a gmail address makes your post look like possible spam, how will people know that’s legitimate?  Also, the website charges a few because they use that money to run their site which recruits a lot of volunteers for things like books behind bars, and they do a lot of community work such as provide scholarships to the children of inmates and scholarships for victims (as well as their families) of crimes.  Please use the website, not the forum, to post an ad.

If you are a person visiting the site and would like to write to an inmate, you go to “search profiles” and you can look for a person to write to - you may either contact them through WAP email service after you have created an account, include your address in your message, and they can write a letter to you, or you can send them a letter at the address they have listed.  Some of them use JPay, which is a messaging service you can get “stamps” for, just like you’d get for snail mail letters, but this sends your messages electronically.  You will need to know the state and inmates number to use Jpay.  There are several other designated email systems used - gmail is not one of them.  Please be wary of people asking you to gmail them on forums, as that could easily be spam/hackers phishing for your account info.
