Is there a musician, athlete, or writer you admire? These steps will help you to write them a fan letter.
You will need
- A computer with internet access
- A pen
- An envelope
- A self-addressed stamped envelope (optional)
Step 1 Find an address Search the internet for a postal or e-mail address for the person’s management company, agent, publisher, fan club, or record label. Some celebrities have their own web site.
If you’re sending a physical letter, handwrite it and use nice stationery.
Step 2 Begin your letter Start your letter by honestly identifying yourself so the person gets a sense of who you are.
Step 3 Keep it simple Compliment the person on their work or a specific thing they did. Keep it short and respectful.
Step 4 Conclude End the letter with a question or a request for a return letter. Include your address if you want a response.
If you want an autographed picture, include a self-addressed stamped envelope, preferably 8 inches by 10 inches.
Step 5 Mail your letter Write the address on the envelope, add a stamp, and send it off.
Step 6 Be patient Wait patiently – depending on how busy the person is, it can take three to four months for a response.
