There are limitless reasons why writing is important.
No matter your age, writing matters in all walks of life. The fundamental skill of putting pen to paper is one that lasts a life time and is truly enjoyable.
Whether you’re handwriting for work, writing letters to somebody that you love or creating stories, handwriting is a fun pastime.
Although schools in Finland and parts of United States of America are phasing out handwriting, we believe that handwriting is a vital part of the National Curriculum, aiding the learning process whilst helping with creativity too.
So whether you write for cathartic reasons or just write for fun, remember, keep writing!
