The Inked Quill Guild: SOGS Chapter 

The Inked Quill Guild is a club all about inks and pens. All things fountain pens, dip pens, calligraphy, inks, etc. belong here. This clubs hosts ink swaps, coordinates pen pals, workshops, and group orders (from places like Wonder Pens, Goulet Pens, or Cult Pens, to save on shipping costs), and hosts a discord channel on the SOGS server for ongoing inky dialogue. As we are new, we are open to feedback from our members on what they would like to see. We plan to evolve and develop based on past events.
