#SaySomethingSpecial on World Calligraphy Day 15th August

If, like me, you revel in a new notebook and some super special pens then you’ll want to hear about World Calligraphy Day which is on the 15th August this year. I have teamed up with Manuscript to be part of the #SaySomethingSpecial Campaign.

The #SaySomethingSpecial campaign is coordinated with Birmingham Children’s Hospital. You write a short letter, poem or note of ‘something special.’ and it contributes to part of a small exhibition, then sent to the children’s hospital along with lovely stationery for the children to enjoy. Such a lovely lift up for those in hospital during the summer.

So what would you say on your letter?


I was sent some lovely calligraphy pens by Manuscript to have fun with for this post but all words are my own!

Further to this Manuscript have also organised Handwriting drop-in sessions:
