Help!

Calling all insurgents!

Can you help me answer this question from my press’s publicist? If you have suggestions for media outlets, please mention them in comments.

“This week I will be sending out samplers with pages from the book to about 75-100 media outlets, concentrating on print and long-lead outlets. If there are any magazines, websites, etc., that you think are popular with the various demographics and audiences for the book, I’d love to hear what they are! Specifically, we are looking at the following audiences:

·         traditional collectors
·         hipsters/young urban-living types
·         Baby Boomers/nostalgia
·         People interested in the writer life
·         Those with a political interest in privacy

Let me know if there are any core groups I am missing here! I welcome and value your input as the expert in your particular field, so I would love to hear from you about the kind of people you have noticed with a strong interest in typewriters.”

    Here in Singapore, a significant group is scrapbookers who use them for Project Life or journaling!

    1. Early childhood educators with an interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, & math).
    2. Back-to-the-land Wendell Berry adherents.
    Good luck!
