To all:

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 and 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!
