FAQ

HOW DOES IT WORK?
I take my manual vintage typewriter to events, weddings and parties where guests tell me a bit about themselves. I then write them a personalized poem, on the spot, in a few minutes. It's so much fun, and everybody loves it! The host has live entertainment, the guests get a custom party favour, and I get to write poetry!

WHAT TOPICS CAN YOU WRITE ABOUT?
Anything you want. Love, heart ache, pets, authenticity, orange juice, entrepreneurship, motherhood, citizenship, travel, bossiness, all of the feelings, anything and everything!

I HAVE A REALLY BIG EVENT, DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER POETS YOU CAN BRING WITH YOU?
Yes I do, and we're all professional writers with fast fingers, sharp minds, and big hearts. 

WHAT TYPE OF POEMS DO YOU WRITE?
Free verse, with the occasional use of rhythm and rhyme. Often encouraging and heartfelt, sometimes cheeky.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU MAKE A MISTAKE?
Except for the rare XXXing out of a word, I just leave them be. Just like in real life, mistakes happen, and sometimes they make things more interesting.

CAN THE EXPERIENCE BE CUSTOM BRANDED?
Absolutely. Contact me to discuss the options.

DO YOU NEED ANYTHING FOR YOUR SET-UP?
Depending on your needs, I can bring my own table, or you can provide one to match your decor. 

WHAT TYPE OF EVENTS CAN YOU TYPE AT?
Wedding receptions, engagement parties, holiday parties, cocktail hours, anniversary parties, bar and bat mitzvahs, private dinners, corporate events, launches, galas, grand openings, fundraisers, bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, activations, anywhere there are word lovers, so everywhere!

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
I'm in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, but I have a passport, and can be easily swayed to travel.
