National Handwriting Day is right around the corner, and there are as many ways to celebrate as there are words to write. January 23 (John Hancock's birthday) is the designated day, and Fahrney's Pens of Washington, DC, is honoring the occasion with a handwriting contest, the winner of which will receive a Parker Ingenuity. All you have to do is send a short sample of your handwriting, expounding on one of three topics: how you came to appreciate fine writing instruments; your thoughts on cursive handwriting being eliminated from school curriculums; or, a personal life-changing event. Entries can be dropped off at Fahrney's or submitted via email or fax by January 31. For more information, visit the Fahrney's web site.
I'm planning to celebrate the day by writing a letter to a loved one. What are you going to do?
