Be the Machine

You'll enjoy the two blog posts I am referencing:
Joe Van Cleave's "Word Whittling" (Sorry for the misspelling of your name in my typecast!)
Richard Polt's "These Machines Saved Me"

Typewriters & Notebooks in Middle School

The librarian at the middle school next to me asked if her students could use my typewriters for their NaNoWriMo project this year.  I said yes in a heartbeat and learned so much about the tools students pick for their writing.

3rd Annual Fall Type-In with the Burlington Book Festival

I am holding a Type-In with the Burlington Book Festival on September 17th from noon until 3PM at the Maglianero Cafe in Burlington, Vermont.  Come and explore typewriters and the written word.  I will have part of my collection at the cafe and I encourage typewriter fans to bring their own machines out to share.  There will be a typing contest and games for all ages.

This is the third year that I am partnering with the Burlington Book Festival who is also bringing the Boston Typewriter Orchestra on Saturday, September 16th at 7PM (Tickets Required).  Burlington is a beautiful city by the lake and is a fantastic place to visit on the cusp of fall.  Bring your typewriter and make a trip of it!
