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.

Brooklyn, NY

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. 

Nat'l Handwriting Day

January 23rd is National Handwriting Day. In 2016, New York City enjoyed a blizzard. So we turned up the heat, made a fresh pot of coffee, and launched an open call to handwriters around the world. We received all kinds of characters: invented alphabets, signature tattoos, backwards cursive, and letters in over two dozen languages. You can see some of the things we received last year below. This year, we're back at it. Starting at the hour you wake up on January 23rd, get your pen to paper and send us whatever takes shape. The wilder, the better. Your favorite quotes, ornate etchings, a sign from the inauguration protest, or whatever else feels liberating. But don't forget to email it to us, tag us on Instagram, or tweet as us, bro. Send the highest quality photo (or a few) to:
