Below are several different items--ebooks, paid classes, and iOS app downloads--which I think may help you learn basic calligraphy. Take a look and feel free to write back and let me know what you think!
Buziak’s Calligraphy Magic: How to Create Lettering, Knotwork, Coloring and More is a great starting text for the beginning calligrapher.
This app does not work with a STYLUS.
