I was wondering if we can send letters ? I found an address and I guess we add their name and number on the front but are we allowed to write ? Or can't we send letters due to Covid 

thanks

Hi there. Yes you can write letters, to anyone with an address (unless you are prohibited from contacting someone specific). 

You can write to any inmate with an ad on Write a prisoner, all the ad profile pages should have a physical mailing address for the prison that inmate is incarcerated at. 
You can write or type a letter, but it in an envelope and send it out. Full name and prison ID number and prison address on the front and a full name and return address and you're good to go :) 

A lot of inmates have experienced a lot more time locked in their cells last year and this year, so I think a lot of people would appreciate a letter during the Covid pandemic. 
A few basic letter writing guides are: use blue or black pen/ink, write single sided sheets of white ruled or blank paper and keep it 5 pages or under to start with. No glitter, no glue, no tape, no crayons or coloured markers (until you can ask specific rules at your pen pals prison) and you should be safe. 
 

Happy writing!
