When I was learning how to write in grade school, I noticed that all my teachers wrote with near-identical handwriting on the chalkboard. In middle and high school, the handwriting of my teachers became more varied. When I reflected on my grade school years, I realized that we were being taught to write in a specific font.

As adults, we have to power to write as we wish. With these instructional videos and worksheets, you can join me in learning to write in the most popular typefaces, as found in the vernacular of desktop publishing.

This project began as a simple pamphlet (seen below,) but it has since developed into a series of instructional how-to videos hosted on YouTube. In an affront to the culture surrounding YouTube comments and as an effort to encourage hand writing, making remarks on the videos are only possible by writing to me through the mail. I aim to produce a video every week and the project will continue indefinitely.
