We also use really cool typewriters.

It’s just the right mix of creative and nostalgia.”

Each poem is moment of authentic, individual connection that, in today’s screen-focused age, is all too rare.

HOW IT WORKS

Guests come up to our table and give us any topic they want.

In about 3 minutes we type them an original, full-length poem that’s theirs to keep.

We bring at least two poets to every event. 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)
