We write custom poems. On really cool typewriters.
“I love this band of spontaneous writers — they always lift the mood.”
— Naomi Shihab Nye, Young People’s Poet Laureate
We are based in Austin, but do events from Maine to Mexico, kid-friendly to adult-feisty. Here’s how it works:
A guest walks up & shares a topic:
“I’m having a rough day…”
Then we create an original poem, typed while they watch:
“People’s lives are changed after these poems.”
— Conference Organizer, Austin
Each poem is a personal connection that often results in laughter, high-fives, even hugs and tears.
We also have a lovely book.
“Sometimes, you hand them your heart and they find its expression.”
“You crafted a poem about my son that was beautiful, funny, and heartfelt. I had 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.”
— Poem Recipient, Dallas Museum of Art
