The 6th Phoenix Type-In will include:
- A typewriter clinic with Bill Wahl from the Mesa Typewriter Exchange. Bill will be on-hand to give his professional opinion about your typewriter.
- Jake Fischer, the typewriter wunderkind, will be holding a speed typing competition which may include fabulous prizes.
- A special exhibit of The Typewriters of Mad Men. You can see, in person IBM Selectrics and a small collection of typewriters featured on the show.
- A chance to win a typewriter. Just put your First Draft receipt in the box and you can win one of three fantastic, beautiful, mid-century typewriters.
Please come out! You'll have a lot of fun.
On another note, the 6th Phoenix Type-In was featured in a New Times article. You can find that story here:
I hope to see you on Saturday!

A colleague sent a link to this video from the March 11th edition of CNN Student News. Paul Schweitzer from Gramercy has some nice things to say about typewriters. Also, he is selling about 30 machines a week! That's amazing.
The good bit starts at 7 minutes in.
