What is Magic Link Handwriting?
Neat handwriting determines success in exams and develops self-confidence
The way in which a person writes affects every aspect of life, regardless of age. Neat handwriting can determine success in examinations, develops self-confidence, improves thinking skills, creates a positive first impression on job application – the list is endless. But there is a solution!
The Magic Link handwriting programme consists of 30 steps which can be followed on a video. It teaches joined-up, cursive handwriting in a simple and logical way, using a step-by-step approach. There are minimum curls and loops with absolutely no “lead-in” flicks, which often confuse and slow down speed. “Lead-in” flicks are also known as “entry strokes” or “initial flicks” and these hinder the neat and simple Magic Link letter formation.
There are many people, both young and old, who need to be re-taught the mechanics of writing. Targeted intervention using the Magic Link handwriting programme produces fantastic results for most students.
The Magic Link handwriting programme can be used for one person, in groups or in a classroom. These group lessons are an excellent, tried and tested way of motivating to work together to gain maximum confidence in handwriting.
Follow the 30 -step video programme and see the difference! Handwriting soon becomes significantly tidier and clearer. Spelling, punctuation and number formation also improve. It enables a person to write neatly and quickly with confidence and pride.
What is a ‘Magic Link’?

The links are easy to teach and keeps handwriting legible and tidy. The use of the ‘Magic Link’ means that the letters are evenly spaced.
