International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club


The International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club, also known as the IGGPPC, is an active and thriving group of worldwide geeks. Founded in March 2013 by Leslie Stewart and Emily Farquharson-Hall, the club was designed to bring together the nerd community through shared interests and a love of stationery. Each month, we pair hundreds of geek girls and guys with their nerdy soul mates using their ‘Top 5 Geek Loves’ to find the perfect match and so far, we’ve paired 7,000+ very happy pen pals. We’re proud to know that many of our pen pals have found life-long friendships through the IGGPPC, and some have even traveled overseas to meet each other! Our website is used to host many more activities, including Book Clubs, Meet Ups, Swaps & Exchanges, Photography Challenges, and discussion on our Forums! It is also home to our blog, +5 Charisma. The TL;DR version? Our club has brought together geeks of all ages, shapes, and sizes, to help them connect with others from around the globe in traditional and non-traditional ways. We’re proud to be spreading positivity, friendship, and fostering a truly loving community online and offline using the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club. Join us, and help us to keep it geek, worldwide.
