“Need unique entertainment?
Typewriter Rodeo delivers.”
(Four Seasons Hotel)
Typewriter Rodeo creates custom, on-the-spot poems for event guests, using vintage typewriters.
Read about a recent gig — The Nantucket Book Festival!
And — The Smithsonian!
HOW IT WORKS: Guests come up to our table, give us any topic they want, and in about 3 minutes we type them an original poem that’s theirs to keep.
People love it — many later get their poems framed. It’s a personal, sometimes emotional experience that typically ends in laughter, high-fives, even tears and hugs.
“That’s incredible! I just got chills!”
(WJLA-TV anchor Autria Godfrey)

It takes two to rodeo — we always bring at least two poets to every event. It’s more fun with multiple typewriters clacking away, plus it lets guests get more poems.
“True artistry at work.”
How do people typically respond? To an original poem written just for them? Well, a picture’s worth…
“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)
