Sometimes words are hard to find - for our feelings, or for gratitude to a friend who loves us as we are. Maybe you’ve been at a loss for words but want to give someone you care for a little surprise, a little courage. Maybe you need to commemorate an experience, or maybe you need to give yourself a love note to commend your own strength. We, the poets of Everyday People Typewriter Poems want to help you find the words.
Here’s how it works:
1. We set up a Zoom call where you tell us a bit about what you want to say and to whom (whether that’s, your neighbour, your partner, a cashier, or you).
2. We’ll write you a short poem on a vintage typewriter, in real-time on the spot, from our home.
3. We’ll read it to you and send you a digital copy (which is yours to keep and share).
We’re offering this service, free of charge, to inject a little joy, creativity and understanding into our world at this time.
If you’ve got an important date or person you want to celebrate with a personal poem, schedule your 15 minute session! Link in bio.
