When should I expect to receive the diary after I sign up?
The Traveling Diary is being mailed from woman to woman across the globe via snail mail. So, it does take some time to reach you, but the magic is in the wait. We do not give estimates due to the many factors beyond our control with snail mail. And that is part of the adventure of this community.
Will I be notified before the diary arrives?
Yes. When your name comes up in the queue, you will be asked to confirm your mailing address before the diary is mailed so we ensure the address is correct. You may also change your address at that time if you’d like as well.
Yes. The Traveling Diary is free to join and receive the diary. However, it is funded by the community (you). So when you join the Patreon community, contribute or purchase our merchandise, it all helps sustain it and expand its reach to more women on the planet.
Do I have to write my story?
Most participants share handwritten stories in the diary when it arrives. Some have used art to tell their stories. We welcome other methods such as audio or video as well. If you wish to share via audio or video, just let us know ahead of time and we will gladly accommodate you.
What if I only want to read the stories?
If you only want to read the stories you can do so by joining the Patreon community. The Traveling Diary is funded through monthly membership experiences that start as low as five bucks a month.
