WE'LL COME TO YOU.

Since we aren't on every social media site, let us come to you. Enter your email below and we'll send you our monthly handwritten newsletter. It will be written during the hours of moonrise, and include featured posts, wild tangents, and rowdy stick figures. 

Keep the beautiful pen busy.

Handwritten is a place and space for pen and paper. We showcase things in handwriting, but also on handwriting. And so, you'll see dated letters and distant postcards alongside recent studies and typed stories. 

About Us

Founded in 2015, Handwritten is a place in space for pen and paper. Publishing works in progress and words on process, we are committed to the private, intimate, and unfinished aspects of life and living. Since launching, we've connected with thousands of people around the world and published writing in over a dozen languages. And every few months, we collaborate with individuals and organizations to curate unique exhibits that illuminate the outer edges of handwriting and hand-making. Our last exhibit, "To Whom It Should Concern," was featured in The New York Times for its innovative approach to education equity. It's our severe hope that you'll get a little lost, but tell us what you find. Welcome to a new kind of handwritten home.

Below are our partners in the pen and masthead. Keep the beautiful pen busy.
