An Austin original for 10 years.
“I love Typewriter Rodeo — they always lift the mood.”
— Naomi Shihab Nye, U.S. Young People’s Poet Laureate
We’re the ones you hear on the radio.
We are a group of experienced, dedicated, sparkly poets.
We’ve written poems for all types of events.
From Willie Nelson’s music festival to the Smithsonian National Museum for American History …
… the Hilton in Cabo san Lucas to the Sun Valley Idaho Writers’ Conference …
… corporate, museum, black-tie galas, schools, fundraisers …
… Austin, Boston, Seattle, Ohio, Vermont, California, wherever …
Give us a topic, we give you a poem.
And an unforgettable experience.
On the spot, on a typewriter.
“People’s lives are changed after these poems.”
— Conference Organizer, Austin
Here’s a taste of how it works:
We also have a heart-warming book
(published by Andrews McMeel Universal)
(endorsed by Tom Hanks, Billy Collins, Laurie Halse Anderson)
Each poem we do is a unique moment of personal connection that cannot be replicated or repeated.
The result is often laughter, high-fives, even hugs and tears.
We also do school & corporate workshops.
