Insights on paper, to keep.

No surprise that Typewriter Rodeo began at an Austin, Texas craft fair in 2013 – four writers creating immediate poetry on portable (and not-so-portable) old typewriters.

This new book collects photos of some poems (which are handed over to their requestors) and the stories behind their creation, from “It’s Valentine’s Weekend…” by Kari Anne for a loved, lost, then refound couple in Austin to “Jeannie” by Sean in honor of a roller-skating, table-waiting cafe owner in Maine.

Yes, the quartet will lug their manual typewriters to your event, far or near, to bring instant poetry on whatever subject they are asked!

What would you request at the Typewriter Rodeo?
