HOW IT WORKS
People give us a topic: “I’m starting this new job…” “Ohmygod I love cheese!”
In about 3 minutes, we turn it into a full-length poem, right in front of them.
And we do it on really cool typewriters.
Your skill and speed are unparalleled.”
“You give them the words, they spit out a poem.
Sometimes, you hand them your heart and they find its expression.”
For 4 years, we’ve typed across the country for 100s of groups

Well, a picture’s worth…
“At the Ransom Center museum, 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)
