Hi. My name is Adrienne, and I'm a typer noob. I'm also a freelance writer and the Managing Editor of Writer's Digest magazine. I'm currently working on an essay about typewriter enthusiasts—how you share your collections, enthusiasm and thoughts, and how being part of the typewriter insurgency has changed your ideas about object permanence and communication.
These are really informal back-and-forth conversations; I won't grill you about the history of the Underwood #5 or ask you which typewriter Cormac McCarthy still uses. (But if you know these things, feel free to share them.)
If you have one or more functional manual typewriters, and attend or organize typewriter-related events (like this months' type-in here in Cincinnati), and would like to answer some questions via email (or, in Cincy metro, in person), then please contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and "Typewriter Interview" in the subject of your email.
I look forward to hearing from you. Happy typing!
