Today (January, 23rd) is National Handwriting Day, an annual celebration which was started three years ago in 2013 by Moleskine. To celebrate this occasion, you’re encouraged to temporarily put down your smartphones and computer keyboards, and use your favorite pen and notebook to write a note. Then use your phone to take a picture of your handwritten notes and post them on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook tagging them with #HandwritingDay and #Moleskine. These images will automatically be added to a live gallery that you will be able to view in real time. Actors Bruce Willis and Debra Messing, and T-Mobile CEO John Legere, are just a few notable people who will be participating by posting their own handwritten tweets.

Handwriting and Moleskine fans can also join the fun at Moleskine retail stores in New York, San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, and Sarasota where a special Handwriting Day station will be provided for customers to handwrite a message in a Moleskine notebook, upload to their social media, and receive a FREE notebook as part of the event. Other special deals and promotions will also be available. Check with your local Moleskine store for more info.

  2. I find it sad, how many ppl under the age of 40 do not know how to write in script/cursive. Some can’t even read it. I see so many of my peers writing in block while taking notes. I find that so slow and frustrating. Script is so smooth, fast and flowing. Although even after all these years if I’m forced to quickly write in block I’ll notice some graphiti sneak it’s way in.
