Hallo all
IM mike 80 from penmanship.....I think in todays age with all the social media outlets
mobile phones computer i pads.....the art of letter writing is disappearing...
Personally love to  write to anyone that is interested in promoting HANDWRITING OR PENMANSHIP
Using your Calligraphy  scripts also a good way to practice

Don t know how we make contact or begin as I m new guidance is needed.....Would really like your thoughts on the topic and your ideas or input please
kindest regards Mike
