Online Typewriter Poems
Fun, spirit boosting, and free until we return to typing poems at events.
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, Cathy and the poets of Everyday People Typewriter Poems want to help you find the words.
Here’s how it works:
- 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).
- We’ll write you a poem on a vintage typewriter, on the spot, from our home.
- We’ll read the poem to you, and then instead of placing the poem in your hand as we normally do at events, we take a photo of the poem and email it to you.
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, or you just want your spirit boosted, join us, we'd love to type you a poem.
