A place for unsent letters


This is a community to post "Dear ___" letters. If you're not sure of what we mean, check out the community for examples. Everyone is free to join but please make sure you read all of the guidelines and community info!


The moderators reserve the right to delete any post or ban any user that does not follow the guidelines below, with or without warning.
  • Keep all posts in the "Dear _____" letter format (or some variation of it).
  • Do not bash other LJ users - this includes writing malicious letters about an LJ user and/or leaving rude/disrespectful comments on an LJ user's post in the community.
  • Do not post advertisements, community promos, surveys, "Add me!" entries, contests, quiz results, refer a link websites, etc.
  • Do NOT disallow comments.
  • No more links in your entries - LJ specific tags are okay.
  • No "Dear members, check this out!" types of posts - this includes ANY variation of that including songs, articles, games, websites, links, etc.
  • Stay away from "Dear members/community" posts in general - this includes asking questions, for advice, etc.
  • No derogatory, racist, sexist, ageist, et.al posts.
  • Place all images, poems, videos, lyrics & excessively long posts behind an LJ cut. As a general rule, if your post takes up more than one screen length, put the rest of it behind an lj-cut.
As a general rule, if it's not an unsent letter, don't post it. There are many many other livejournal communities that can cater to your posts. The community runs on a "neighborhood watch" basis - i.e. if you make a questionable post, members of the community have the right to notify one of the moderators in this post to take a look at it. We are all watching out for each other in order to make the community run as peacefully as possible.


If you have any questions, please first check the LJ FAQ before you do anything! If you can't find your answer there or if it relates specifically to this community, then please comment on this post instead of posting your question in the community.
