The Magic Margin and Lux Central Host the Third Phoenix Type-In

Time to dust off your keys and replace your ribbons -- the third Phoenix Type-In is just around the corner.

The meet-and-greet/show-and-tell is a chance for local typewriter geeks and enthusiasts to drool over each other's machines and show off their latest tips and tricks.

Fair warning: This event is bound to flood your instagram feed.

The Type-In is hosted by The Magic Margin, an educational experiment run by Ryan Adney and his English students at Alhambra High School in Phoenix.

Adney introduced typewriters into his class last year when he noticed his students taking interest in the 1952 Royal HH typewriter he had borrowed from the high school's library and kept in his classroom.

A year later, he and the students now run a blog titled "Magic Margin: The Classroom Typewriter Project," in which they profile each machine that's been donated and collected, discuss their latest projects, and manually type entries before scanning them in and posting them online.

The Phoenix Type-In will be at Lux Central, at 4400 N. Central Ave. from 1 to 3 p.m..

In attendance will be machines from the classroom, recently refurbished machines (including ours) from the Mesa Typewriter Exchange, and more from members of the Typosphere.
