Kindle fire maybe, but your best off with an android based tablet like a nexus as there is a wide range of compatible printers
you're better off with a cheap laptop, keyboards on tablets are horrible for large amounts of typing.
I don't think you can automatically do any kind of writing on a Kindle without downloading relevant software first. I have one and sometimes struggle to open email attachments etc as it says the format is not supported. Plus typing for long periods of time wouldn't be great on any kind of tablet.

Is there an app to download for typing? Cheers
There are a few options which show up in the APP store. One is to buy for £3.00 and a couple of free ones - one of them has decent reviews. I don't have any knowledge of how good they are to work with. You would need to check whether the model of printer you have is compatible with the Kindle.
