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.

Take The First Steps Into The Dark Dawn • Royster

In 2009, I couldn't read my own longhand notes.  I read a bit about handwriting, then adopted an italic script from Write Now! by Getty & Dubay.  Much more legible, and if I put my mind and hand to it a little more than I do here, I get compliments!  Best of all, I got a letter from Mrs. Getty where she includes some calligraphic scribbles.
