Typewriter Rodeo Magic
Reviewed in the United States on May 23, 2018
Who knew that poetry could be so much fun? Custom poems created on the spot by a talented, quick thinking group of writers who hammer out fresh poems at lightening speed (or close to) on their vintage typewriters. The improv comedy experience of some of the writers helps explains (to me) their ability to think so quickly. This book contains a collection of short back stories describing the people, their requests, and the poems they inspired. Honestly, the most amazing things happen when Typewriter Rodeo performs: strangers share personal thoughts and experiences with this poem posse, and the results are often a touching, personal, genius poem/gift that will be read, shared, and re-read (and often framed) (or maybe even end up in a book!) Many stories had me laughing out loud, others brought tears to my eyes.
It’s a sweet and funny collection of short stories and the human connection – magic – that happens with Typewriter Rodeo.
Ride on, Typewriter Rodeo! Or should I say, write on!
