A Public Typewriter Goes Hybrid - "The World's Smallest Publishing House Is Still Accepting Submissions"

The Literati bookstore in Ann Arbor, Michigan has a public typewriter on the floor. An old fashioned one, with clacking keys and ringing carriage returns. It's there for anyone to type on.

And then, it was retired in the pandemic.

Now the typewriter is back(!)

On the plus side, in the meantime the nice folks at Literati Bookstore created an online version where any and all of us can leave our own missives to the world.

(It's pretty confounding and oddly liberating to NOT be able to delete, or go back. It's all forwards!)

Take the virtual public typewriter for a spin...

Illustrate, Translate, and Write On,

P.S. You can also check out what folks have written/published on the Public Typewriter on Instagram here.
