Hey everyone!

Frank asked me to post an invitation here for anyone interested in being a PostSecret virtual intern. You can work from home and make your own hours…or more like minutes. It should be a lot of fun.

The first task is to help with the creation of the PostSecret Digital Companion for the new hardcover book. You will be helping us review secrets to include, create content (your stories) and connect secrets. This assignment doesn’t pay but you will be given credit on the acknowledgement page.

If you'd like to get involved you can e-mail me at to get started!

If you are local, or not, the PostSecret picnic is coming up July 12th. Here is a link for more information:

If you haven’t already, please pre-order the new PostSecret book here:

PostSecret has been a part of my life for many years, ever since I read my first postcard in middle school. I don’t remember what the secret was, but Frank’s address stood out to me. I realized that I was from the same town, and my twelve-year old self was astounded because I had mistakenly decided that nothing interesting ever happened in my town.

I looked up PostSecret, and discovered a community where strangers were brought together through their most liberating, painful, haunting, and intimate secrets.

Now, years later, as a PostSecret intern, I am excited to be directly working with such a beautiful and influential community. As interns, Katie and I brick 4x6 postcards together to add to the constantly growing pyramid of secrets. We have also been photographing objects that people mail in. These will hopefully be in the new PostSecret digital app.

Here is a small sample of some of the objects and secrets that people mail in to PS.

To me, what makes each postcard and secret so charming is the way that people choose to physically display it. Holding each postcards and object in my hands, even for one second, is absolutely incredible.
