Writers and Their Typewriters

Ever wonder what it would be like to write on the same model typewriter Hemingway used? Long before Microsoft Word became the tool of choice for writers, the typewriter was a unique middle ground between the intimacy of handwriting and the speed and efficiency of the computer. Novelist Will Self said, “I think the computer user does their thinking on the screen, but the typewriter user is compelled to do much more thinking in the head.”

Typewriter Tom returns to CMOA on January 28 with a unique collection of the exact typewriter models used by many famous authors. From Mark Twain’s Remington #6 to Cormac McCarthy’s $254,000 Olivetti Lettera 32, this is your chance to try them out. Start your next 300-page novel! Channel your inner Hemingway! Use two spaces!

Free with museum admission.
