We’re partnering with
Handwriting the Constitution
for National Handwriting Day,
January 23, 2020.
Every year, on John Hancock’s birthday, the United States celebrates the amazing cultural phenomenon of handwriting. Handwriting communicates — it expresses ideas, emotions, thoughts, instructions. Handwriting organizes — by making lists, plans, goals. Handwriting teaches — it helps us to learn and to think. And it connects us to thousands of years of cultural history.
There are many ways to celebrate Handwriting Day, and they all involve exercising that basic literary skill that you probably don’t remember learning for the first time. You can write a letter, postcard, or just a note to a friend or family member — a thank you, a get-well-soon, a love letter or a business letter. You can learn a new handwriting style, or brush up the one you use. You can write out your favorite poem, quotation, or a founding document.
At Handwriting Success, we are celebrating Handwriting Day 2020 by joining the ongoing events of Handwriting the Constitution. Find out more about this non-profit organization created by Morgan O’Hara, and organize your own event www.hanwritingtheconstitution.com.
See below the events that are being sponsored by us at Handwriting Success in collaboration with Handwriting the Constitution. They are free and open to the public. Spend quality time getting to know this foundational document of self-governance by copying it out by hand, either on your own or in a group, in public or in private.
You can find out more about how to participate, or create your own local event at www.handwritingtheconstitution.com. If you organize an event for National Handwriting Day, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll post it below. (Be certain you provide all necessary information, including a contact e-mail address.)
