TheWrittenArtist visited the London Stationery Show at the Business Design Centre in Islington, April 2017.

Tying out pens, yet more pens, and talking to all sorts of people who sell and make pens.

Clients sometimes ask me about pens - in coaching, I tend to use everyday working pens that I can rely on. If you have had a coaching session with TheWrittenArtist you will know that I tend to bring a variety of pens to try out.

Finding the right pens that suit your hand can instantly improve handwriting, and the pleasure of writing.

When I used a fountain pen, years ago, they were still splodgy and splashy. I don't really mind inky fingers, except they can smudge the paper. Fountains pens, even at entry level, have considerably moved on and I think I'm about to become a personal convert.

I was especially impressed with Studio Pens http://www.studiopens.co.uk/, who allowed me to make and keep a lovely wee fountain pen similar to this:

Clients ask and I respond. I will be starting a new page on this site of my pen discoveries and recommendations, perhaps even a shop. It's very personal how a pen feels in the hand and to write with. It's a quest. Perhaps you are already a collector of these beautiful and practical artefacts. They express words, they communicate meanings. The pen is mightier than the computer.
