They have used the preterite tense, which i think is incorrect for repeating actions. It should use the imperfect escribía.

Sin contexto suena mucho mejor y más natural usar 'escribía. Yo leo la frase tal cual y me suena muy mal con 'escribí', pero habrá contextos en donde si se vea más natural.... Por decir algo, "yo les escribí una carta aquel verano" o "yo les escribí una carta en verano", .......Pero al ser durante un período de tiempo ('cada verano') me suena regular lo de "escribí", yo tb elegiría "escribía"

Should it not say "each" summer?

In this case, both words transmit the same idea.

It is curious that my previous sentence was "I wrote him..." but this time it is "I wrote to them...".

DL accepted "Les escribí cada verano"  here in any case.

"every summer" implies a habitual action and habitual actions are typically translated to imperfect, escribía
