This write in with typewriters will be conducted by John King (host of The Drunken Odyssey: A Podcast About the Writing Life) and Nick Georgoudiou (host of the To a Certain Degree radio show and podcast).

Writers who wish to join this write-in are invited to go old school with numerous antique typewriters that will be on hand for this event, and bebop jazz will be playing to help drown out all those typewriters. Paper will be provided; you will need to provide your own inspiration.

This event is free and open to the public.
