Welcome to Wiggins’ Words

Brent Wiggins writes poetry, letters, and any personal messages you like, all on his Smith-Corona typewriters, the 1956 Skyriter and the 1975 Galaxie Twelve XII.

He takes your requests or thoughts and makes them inked and fresh off the press.

Brent also attends events, local and far, big and small. The clatter of the typewriter is the perfect invitation for creation and conversation, no matter the occasion.

In this fast-moving, digital-downloading, self-gratifying society, it can be hard to see what is artificial and what is authentic. With the typewriter, you slow down, log off, and tap in with the only notification bell you need at the end of the carriage.

A bond is made: the machine services the man as the man services the machine.

Wiggins’ Words looks to share that relationship, this time with your words.
