Poetry as entertainment?
Yup, believe it.

We write poems on the spot, on whatever topics people give us.

HOW IT WORKS

It takes two to rodeo! 

We always bring at least two poets. Why?

Guests like the interactive experience a lot more than if it’s a solo typist.

Plus, the sound of multiple typewriters clacking away?  That’s just fun.

“At the Ransom Center party, Jodi crafted a poem about my son that was beautiful, funny, and heartfelt. I looked at her with tears in my eyes after reading it and all I could say was ‘Thank you. It’s perfect.’

The poem is now framed and hanging in his room.”  (Jen Rios Burns, event guest)
