As you know, for many years I've directed the World Handwriting Contest (for which PEN WORLD INTERNATIONAL magazine provided and shipped prizes, and also briefly announced the Contest in the magazine once or twice a year).
PEN WORLD CEO Glen Bowen has now informed me that PEN WORLD has canceled support for the World Handwriting Contest because of a change in PEN WORLD's corporate direction. Without this support (a means to provide and ship prizes), the Contest cannot continue.
To keep the Contest going, I need to find — FAST! — one or more handwriting-devoted persons or organizations to provide and ship out prizes. I assume all other burdens and duties (publicity, organization, convening and supervising the judges, etc.).
If you don't want the world of pen- and handwriting-lovers standing by while the World Handwriting Contest closes forever, please contact me ASAP via e-mail at handwritingrepair@xxxxxxxxx (or telephone 518-482-6763).
