A great way to encourage mini (and not so mini) mortals to enjoy writing is to introduce them to some of Grimm & Co's most esteemed customers.
Each of the below listed magical beings is currently accepting and replying to post from the mortal realm. 

If you are yet to meet a dragon, write to Jacob Hunter and enquire about his cutlery hoard in his den at Wharncliffe Side.
Unsure about potion making? Write to Guinevere for tips on growing or sourcing your own ingredients. 
Perhaps you enjoy adventures or travel? There is barely a place Cadmus hasn't visited, and he can usually recommend the tastiest local cuisine.
Flicker the fairy, whilst shy, is interested in humans and their ability to fly in aeroplanes! Perhaps you could let her know if you've ever taken a trip in one?
Perhaps you are a lonely unicorn and would like to get in touch with a fellow unicorn in a herd with four of their friends? 
Ham is the giant who lives at the top of the beanstalk at Grimm & Co. He has two adopted children so would be happy to share and hear ideas for games to play; after all, he is a puzzle master!
Five trolls reside hidden in the troll room at Grimm & Co and enjoy getting up to mischief; reading books about animals in the Forgotten Library, wallpapering with envelopes and hiding fresh troll trumps in the Lucky or Unlucky dip!
And if you have ever visited our Apothecary to the Magical in Rotherham, you will likely have met Malcolm, the resident lazy bones himself. This friendly skeleton can share book recommendations and reading literary creations submitted in letters.

Lastly, you can write to Father Christmas to find out if you have made it onto the Nice List and send him your wish list.
