Bespoke Poetry

Would you love to wow the guests at a wedding toast? Celebrate a milestone event? Find a birthday gift for someone who has everything? Or even give a prophetic poem to yourself?

I have a Master of Fine Arts and a Fulbright Fellowship in poetry. I write plenty of thoughtful free verse, but I can also spin a clever rhyme! Want a poem that is heartfelt or funny—or a mix of both? Can do.

Pricing is simple: $5 per line, 20-line minimum.

Email me your desired length and send payment via the $ link above. I’ll send you a simple questionnaire. Once I have those details, I’ll craft a custom poem for you, send you a proof to approve, make any tweaks, and then send you the finished poem as a Word document. You can mail it, print it, frame it…whatever you like!

Here’ a sample poem in free verse. Fred & Cheryl had been married 38 years, and I wrote them a 38-lined anniversary poem. (Note that line lengths often vary, and since poetry has been called “the best words in the best order,” a shorter line is actually more valuable than a longer one!)
