We write poems for people, on-the-spot.
First, someone gives us a topic:
“I’m starting a new job…”
“I’m having a rough day…”
“I love cheese!”
Then we turn it into an original poem, typed out while they watch:
“People’s lives are changed after these poems.”
— Organizer, Professional Convention Management Association Conference
“You get me … you really get me!”
— Poem Recipient, Odessa Arts Festival
Each poem is moment of authentic, individual connection that often results in laughter, high-fives, even hugs and tears.
“You give them the words, they spit out a poem. 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, Harry Ransom Center
