Where to direct your One Direction fan mail
There's one question that commenters keep asking on our How to Meet and Greet One Direction article: how do I write to One Direction? Well we're sure you know how to put pen to paper, but maybe some of the finer details of contacting the boys have alluded you. So here's you're guide to writing to one direction.

What to Write:

You've probably got plenty of things you'd love to say to One Direction, but make sure it's not all incoherent ramblings. Try to stay away from things like "OMG Niall!!!!!! I want to have your babies!!!!!!". When it comes to exclamation marks (and hypothetical babies), discretion is the key.

Messages of encouragement or support are great, but you might also have a story to tell. Maybe a One Direction song helped you get through a tough time, or maybe they've inspired you to follow your musical dream. These are the stories that people love to hear.

What to Include:

You might want to send something extra along with your mail; so here's a look at what to send, and what not to send.

While it may seem like a great idea to send a present to the boys, try to remember not to go overboard. After all, this is One Direction, they're capable of buying themselves plenty of things and they don't want their fans spending their money on gifts. If you do want to send something along make it something small, cheap, and with a bit of humour involved.

If you fancy yourself as a bit of an artist, then fan art is the perfect thing to attach to your letter. If you reckon you've got some great drawings of One Direction, why not send them along too. If you don't want to say goodbye to them forever, scan a copy of the picture before you send it off.

Finally, one last thing you might want to include is a self addressed and stamped envelope. Maximise your chance of getting a reply, by popping one of these in there.

Things to definitely not include are: Anything alive, anything that ticks, white powders, body parts, and anything you'd be too embarrassed to show your parents.

Where to Write to:

If you're sending a letter through the post then, sorry to say, we're not handing out the personal addresses of Harry, Liam, Louis, Niall, and Zayn. Instead you can send all your fan mail to One Direction's management company. The address to send mail to is:

One Direction
C/O Modest Management
The Matrix Complex
91 Peterborough Rd

Unfortunately there's no quick and easy email option, but if there was, can you imagine the emails they'd have to sort through? If you are a fan of online communication, then you can also try getting in contact via Facebook or Twitter.

The One Direction Facebook Page probably isn't the best place to get in touch. So many fans post on their daily, that it's unlikely the messages are actually getting seen. It's a good place to stay up to date with updates, and if you reply to a post your chances of getting a reply are a little higher, but all in all you have a better chance of chatting to other fans than the boys themselves.

Twitter is another story, while the official One Direction Twitter page is filled with mostly updates, the boys all have their own Twitter pages.

Make sure you're following Liam, Zayn, Niall, Harry, and Louis on their own Twitter accounts. Remember you're limited to 140 characters, so don't go sending them an essay in 100 separate tweets. Keep it short and snappy if you want to say hi. There's no way they can respond to every "I love you" message, but say something interesting and you might be lucky enough to get a retweet, reply, or even a follow.

Will You Get a Reply?

There's no guarantee that you will get a reply, after all, can you imagine how much fan mail they get every day? But plenty of people have gotten replies. Make your letter worth reading, and maybe you'll be more likely to get one sent back.

Even if there is a reply on it's way to you in the mail, these things can take time. Our suggestion? Forget about it. That way if one does turnup in your mailbox it will be an extra special surprise.

Just ask the person that delivers your mail. Or just go to your local post office and ask them about how many you will need to send it to the UK and they should be able to tell you how many you will need. Hope this reply/info will help
