Published by Andrews McMeel, it’s a collection of poems —
and the stories and people behind them.

Some sample pages:

“Filled with the delicious danger of creativity in front of strangers,
your heart is hungry for this art.”

— Laurie Halse Anderson, National Book Award finalist & author of Speak

It’s in all major bookstores — and online here from
Amazon, your local indie
or Austin’s awesome BookPeople!

Typewriter Rodeo is an exciting project that implicates perfect strangers in the business of poetry by spontaneously writing a poem about them. It’s not that the composers think revision is for pantywaists, they just have to get on to the next person in line!

And here in your hands is a lively, collage-form gathering of poems, photos, and back stories, which puts the work of these mad, ambush-style typists on colorful display.”

— Billy Collins, two-term U.S. Poet Laureate


Yours in poetry,
