Portland, ME: Help organize a type-in, or just get together?

Hello, my name is Renee Cote. I’m a creative writer and a typewriter enthusiast. I would like to organize a type-in and would love some help. It’d also be great to get a sort-of “raise your hand if you’re interested,” whether to organize or participate, head count.

Portland, ME has at least three great spots for a type-in. One is LFK, a typewriter-themed bar/lounge/restaurant that already has monthly open mike readings and quarterly SCBWI-NE meetings. Number two is the Press Hotel, a print and journalism-themed hotel. The third option is the Portland Public Library. I haven’t tried to organize anything there, but one can hope.

Besides a type-in, I’d love to meet other typewriter enthusiasts and geek out over our beauties. Mine is a 1960 Olympia SM4 in army green. Her name is Demeter.

Good luck with your Type-In, Renee. I'm not sure how many members here are from the Portland area as it's an international forum, but hopefully there are a few. If you're trying to gauge interest it might be a good idea to post notices in all the places you mentioned - and in any other 'artsy' type places in the city.

Hi Uwe, thank you for the ideas and the good luck wishes! There probably aren’t many people here from Portland, but I thought I’d try. I’ll probably also post on other typewriter boards.
