My name is Cathy Thorne, I'm the woman at the typewriter*. My super-power is quickly connecting with people, uncovering their essence and creating a heartfelt poem on the spot. What helps me capture insights with humour, in the moment? I have experience in improvisational theatre, creative writing, creating cartoons, and visual arts, including a diploma in art.

* I founded Everyday People Typewriter Poems so that I could do three of my favourite things for a living; meet new people, go to parties, and write. My small business got big fast, and I was asked to write at big events, so I called on every professional writer/artist/performer/big-hearted creative I knew or knew about, and built a team of poets to take with me, and now I get to go to bigger parties!
