June 18, 2014
Gregory Ciotti, contributor for the Entrepreneur and a person who regularly writes about the benefits of handwriting, highlights the benefits of personal writing in this article. Some key benefits are that writing makes you happier, it improves thinking skills and communication, can be an expressive outlet during difficult times, and leads to better learning. Likely not a coincidence, many successful people like Warren Buffett, Richard Branson, and Bill Gates take time to write expressively. Richard Branson calls his notebook one of his essential possessions!
PartnershipUs believes in the benefits of expressive handwriting. In our Literacy Through Letters program, we teach expressive writing to students through letters and journaling. This helps them put their thoughts and feelings onto paper, while teaching them valuable communication skills that are key to scholastic and future success. We also recognize the therapeutic benefit of writing, especially when students and their families face hardships, that helps process emotions in a positive manner.
