You've come to a friendly place, and we welcome you to our biro-lovers' community. What is BiroCrossing, you ask? It's a global biro club that crosses time and space. It's a writing group that knows no geographical boundaries. Do you like free biros? How about free biro clubs?. Well, the biros our members leave in the wild are free...but it's the act of freeing biros that points to the heart of BiroCrossing. Biro trading has never been more exciting, more serendipitous, than with BiroCrossing. Our goal, simply, is to make the whole world a stationary shop. BiroCrossing is a biro exchange of infinite proportion, the first and only of its kind.

Here at you'll find tens of thousands of biro reviews, biro ratings, and biro recommendations, because each time a biro changes hands our members can leave journal entries telling the world of their experiences.

But let's get right down to it. You know the feeling you get after writing with a biro that speaks to you, that touches your life, a feeling that you want to share it with someone else? gives you a simple way to share biros with the world, and follow their paths forever more!

The "3 Rs" of BiroCrossing...

  • (W)rite with a good biro (you already know how to do that)
  • Register it here (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BiroCrossing ID number), and label the biro
  • Release it for someone else to write with (give it to a friend, leave it on a park bench, donate it to charity, "forget" it in a coffee shop, etc.), and get notified by email each time someone comes here and records journal entries for that biro. And if you make Release Notes on the biro, others can Go Hunting for it and try to find it!

Sounds easy, right? Well it is. It's also a fascinating exercise in fate, karma, or whatever you want to call the chain of events that can occur between two or more lives and one piece of literature. Oh, and we should mention, it's absolutely free and absolutely private, too.

So go grab a biro or two from your desk now (they're not doing anyone any good there, are they?), register them here, jot down our URL and the BCID we'll give you on the label, and then give them away or leave them where someone will find them.

If you like what you've heard about BiroCrossing so far, and want to share some of your biros with the world and track where they go forever, please take a quick minute and Join BiroCrossing NOW - it's FREE and ALWAYS WILL BE!


Are you a member of a writing group? BiroCrossing is a great new activity for writing groups of all types and sizes. Be sure to let your group know about BiroCrossing during your next meeting - or if you want to let them know about it right now, use our quick and easy Tell-A-Friend feature!


Stationary suppliers: listen up! We know you may be concerned about all this biro-sharing talk, and what it might do to your sales. You may be surprised to know that we have many, many stationary suppliers that are big BiroCrossing fans. They've seen the paradoxical value in encouraging the sharing of biros. In fact, if one were to compare the number of people who buy biros based on seeing biro reviews here as the biros change hands, to the number of people who actually find free biros, we can assure you there are far more buyers than finders. This site is not about saving people money. Many of our members, in fact, have started purchasing two copies of every biro they pick out, so they can keep one and release the other into the wild! Here's a good forum discussion re: suppliers, biro sales, and birocrossing that should alleviate any concerns about lost sales.
