Connect to your friends through handwritten notes, cards, letters, and postcards—an interactive workbook that encourages creative interactions between friends through the written word, complete with cross-outs, smudges, and parenthetical asides.

Put down that smartphone and pick up a pen! Texting and e-mail have taken over our correspondence, but Karen Benke is ready to change that. Through prompts that invite penning short postcard-size notes, ideas for sending cards "just because," and inspired letter-writing exercises, Pass That Note! offers limitless possibilities for connecting with your friends in more personal, unique, and creative ways.
