The Book Drunkard Literary Festival

Ever wanted to learn how to type on a typewriter? Now’s your chance!

Toronto Typewriter will get you started learning typewriter basics. Then author Kerry Clare will take over, leading the short story workshop. Got a story you’re burning to share? Type it up on one of the typewriters and submit it to a jury to win a prize! The contest is optional, so if you just want to try banging it out on a typewriter, old-school, this event is open to anyone and everyone 14 years of age and older! Space is limited to the number of typewriters available so sign up soon before it sells out! Workshop runs from 2 – 4 pm.
