Subject:The art of writing -- penmanship From:"Michael L. Wyland" <michael -at- sumptionandwyland -dot- com> To:techwr-l -at- lists -dot- techwr-l -dot- com Date:Fri, 15 Dec 2006 10:57:56 -0600
I'm an experienced technical writer, after a fashion -- grant
applications, strategic plans, policies & procedures, etc. -- but I'm
new to this list, having been referred by a colleague. If I'm
off-topic, I'll apologize now.
However, I thought some of you might know of books, manuals, etc., to
teach an adult how to improve his/her penmanship. An article in an
in-flight magazine I read a few years ago mentioned at least one such
book, but I've searched amazon.com and bn.com without success.
I'm not looking for calligraphy; just a book on proper writing style
to complement the keyboard-based writing I already do. Thanks!
