What is the Snail Mail Game Show?
The Snail Mail Game Show is an interactive project based in challenges and creativity.
Every round, participants receive a prompt with a creative challenge to complete and send back.
Any mediums are allowed, the only rule is the submission must be sent via snail mail.
Anyone with a mailbox
Hi! I'm Mary, and your host for the Snail Mail Game Show!
I run Uncustomary, a business dedicated to self love and creativity. I want to remind you to celebrate who you are and embrace your inner weird. I live in Baltimore, Maryland. I have a cat named Bug, a boyfriend named Joe, and a sincere passion for balloons, handwritten letters, and all things sparkly.
If you're in the US, you can sign up now and it will cost $4.30.
If you're international, you can sign up, but at your own risk. The deadlines still apply to you and it costs a little bit more due to postage ($8.50). If you aren't able to get me your submission by your Round's deadline, I won't be able to refund your entry fee.
Q: Why isn't this free?
A: Your entry fee does two things: 1) It makes you more likely to be serious about participating 2) It covers costs on my end like postage, shipping materials, toner, your extra gifts, and the time it takes for me to create the challenges, package the envelopes, and mail them.
You will receive an envelope with instructions, a prompt, small surprise, and a pre-addressed envelope to send back to me.
Your challenge will be different each round, and you can use any medium you like! As long as you can mail it back to me, it's fair game!
Your work will be showcased on my blog and linked to a URL of your choice for exposure to thousands of creative people!
You have the chance to win a prize! I select a winner from each round who gets an extra snail mail surprise... that could be you!
Examples: Round 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, & 15
