This is my fourth year to blog on National Handwriting Day about the event and finds me sharing two new penmanship videos and a resource page from among the emails in my inbox today. One new video is by Goldspot Pens, and the other by Jet Pens. Furthermore, Write_On has a resource page for suggestions on who to write while at the same time getting to practice your penmanship.

From 2018 – “… you will want to check out the Campaign for Cursive… In addition, over at Stationery Matters, “… these ideas of what to write about today: “Craft a note. Draft a letter. Transcribe your thoughts. Practice your signature.” Lastly, their article concludes with linking over to pencilsandpens.org…”
