“Long after the event, Typewriter Rodeo was what most people were still talking about.”

We’ve done book festivals and literary events across Texas and the country. And they’re always tons of fun! (The guests think so too.)
Texas Book Festival: For the last 3 years, the Texas Book Festival has invited us to type poems at their weekend literary festival in downtown Austin.
Overview: We had a steady line the whole time, and typed poems on topics ranging from trumpets to awkward first kisses. It was spectacular fun, and we can’t wait to go back next year!
“It was part art, part therapy. What a deal!”

Texas Library Association (TLA): At the TLA annual conference, Texas Teens 4 Libraries (TT4L) invited us to type poems at their table, to help attract passersby.
Overview: We set up in the hotel ballroom, just before the conference began.
Once we started, teens, librarians, and other attendees were lined up for 3 hours, gleefully cooking up words and phrases for their poems.
Texas Teen Book Fest: For the last 3 years, the TX Teen Book Festival has had us type at their huge annual event in Austin.
Overview: Two words: jam-packed and fun! These kids gave some of the best poem suggestions ever — from “unlikely friends” to “the truth behind lies,” from “Cheetos” to “being different,” from “elfin Romeo” to simply, “love.”
