1978 Olympia SG3

Serial #7-4158664

I bought this machine purely for fun. And I wanted a 6-pitch typewriter, again, purely for fun. It fills the desk and I hardly have room to keep it but I have already taken it to a college bar and I am sure there will be other ridiculous adventures to come.
This machine was used by ABC broadcasting for typing teleprompter sheets and was found in Stillwater, Minnesota.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
