you turn into a dark alleyway, and feel along the bricks for a door. your hand closes around a cool brass doornob. you turn, and find that you have to crouch to enter. as you walk in, you see a circle of ornate antique chairs. flickering lanterns light the room rather poorly. on shelves are old radios โ€” you spot a lineup of zeniths in need of repairs โ€” film cameras, and typewriters. you have found the meeting place of the society of typewriter enthusiasts.ย 

who are we

we are a gathering of peoples interested in typewriters. electric, manual, portable, anything else at all. we are united by our common love of the written word, of modes of recordkeeping older than you or i.ย 

what do we do?

discuss typewriters, share images, find the typewriter for your needs, and much more. what do you seek to discuss, what typewriters do you aspire to one day own? need advice fixing up your typewriter, or are you looking for a good place to get a new ribbon? do you REALLY want to type in typewriter font?ย 

q&aย 

must i be the proud parent of a typewriter machine in order to join the society?ย no! all you need is an appreciation for the machine, or an urge to parent one yourself, to join. and if you have no particular interest in typewriters or do not want to join the society, you may still swing by our meeting place to ask any questions you have about typewriters.ย 

i'll add to this but i doubt anyone shall be confused.ย

Siblings Not Wanting To Hangout With You

Lately I feel like my brother would rather read then hang out with me. Now it might not seem that big, but, to me it is. We have a very close relationship for siblings and I miss playing with him. I know I'm overreacting but it feels like all he wants to do is read and draw and play Minecraft. -Anonymous ย  Hi there!ย  Iโ€™m sorry youโ€™re feeling this way. I understand what itโ€™s like, and it can really hurt. Everyone changes, hits puberty, and develops at different times. Part of it could be thatโ€ฆ

Supporting An LGBTQ+ Sibling

How can I support my Lgbtq+ sister going through puberty and in social situations? -Anonymous Hello there!ย  This is a very good question, and I hope my advice is helpful to you <3ย  The main thing is: Be there for her. If she has questions, do your best to answer them. If she needs a listening ear, or a big hug, sit there and let her talk, or supply said hug. Just simple things like that can go a long way, even if it doesn't seem like it. And don't judge her, or say her questions are silly, orโ€ฆ

Coming Out To Family

How do I come out to family? -Anonymous Hi there! This is a loaded question that has many different answers, because everyone's family situation is different. Before you come out to a family member, the biggest thing to consider is: Is your family homophopbic? If the answer is 'yes' or 'I don't know', then you should definitely think really hard about how you want to come out, and make sure you have a backup plan in case things don't go so well. If you're coming out in a maybe-iffy environment,โ€ฆ

Excercising When You Don't Want To

I despise PE. I always get picked last in activities, not because people donโ€™t like me but because I have no athletic abilities whatsoever. I canโ€™t run, I canโ€™t hit, I canโ€™t do push-ups... I want to get better, but I donโ€™t want to do these things when I donโ€™t have to (I know itโ€™s important to exercise but I donโ€™t like it, and I donโ€™t like most sports). What should I do? โ€“Anonymousย  ย  Hi! Iโ€™m sorry you dislike PE and feel like you always get picked last, captains choosing teams is really not theโ€ฆ

Ask A Girl: Need advice? Give great advice? We help each other! Ask your questions or answer any of the questions already here. Your post will appear in a day or two, so check back often. We've had many girls ask if their questions can be anonymous, and that is not possible on this website. We want you to know that girls in NMG can trust each other, even with embarrassing questions. And if you want to, you can change your user name to a "not real" name that will then also be used in the magazine if your Ask A Girl question is published.

Letters To Luna: I'm Luna, the spirit of New Moon. Write a letter to me with your opinions and suggestions about the magazine and website. I love to read all your notes! Because I get so many letters, I can't reply online. But a select few letters get published in each issue!
