What’s hot again in the writing world? Typewriters!!!
Despite the shut down or revamping of all of the original typewriter manufacturers, there is a whole new generation of typewriter fans emerging.
CBS 11 reports some of those embracing the really old-school technology include street poets, public “type-ins” at bars, and even celebrities!
Albuquerque NM typewriter repairman John Lewis says he hasn’t seen so much business in years!

Speaking of typewriters, a new documentary on the subject, featuring Tom Hanks and pop star John Mayer will be out later in the summer.
