Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need any prior experience with cursive or handwriting to take this course?

The ability to write by hand is the only prerequisite. Young children will probably need the help of an adult to make it through the course.

How long will it take to complete the course?

The course could be completed in a week or months, depending on your skill level and commitment. Feel free to go at your own pace.

What kind of cursive writing will I be learning?

The course teaches a standard American cursive script, rooted in the tradition of American penmanship. The forms are similar to “Business Penmanship” or “Palmer Method”. The arm-writing approach of Palmer Method is not covered in this course, however, this course is a great start if you want to learn Palmer Method. You can learn more about The Palmer Method at ThePalmerMethod.com.

Can left-handed writers take this course?

Everything about writing cursive is the same for left-handers as it is for right-handers, except for how you position your hand and body relative to the writing. In the lesson on paper position, I speak directly to the left-handers and provide a method for writing that will allow you to execute the cursive forms without smudging your writing.

Why learn cursive writing?

Cursive is a very practical style of writing that holds significance in American culture. Cursive handwriting is seen as more mature, professional, and beautiful than print or manuscript writing. Technically, cursive is a flowing script that many find conducive to taking notes or getting thoughts down on the page.

Your Instructor

A picture of David, the course instructor

Consistent Cursive was created by David DiGiovanni, aka Perfect Biscuits on YouTube, Instagram, and Reddit (shout out to /r/Handwriting). David has spent countless hours studying American penmanship since 2016, focusing on practical scripts like cursive. He has posted over 100 videos on YouTube teaching cursive.

David also studies and teaches the traditional method of writing called, “muscular movement” (aka Palmer Method), where the arm is used to write cursive script. Consistent Cursive does not teach muscular movement, but is a great first step towards learning it. You can learn more about muscular movement at ThePalmerMethod.com.
