Hi, I'm Cathy Thorne. My super-power is quickly connecting with people, discovering 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 combine three of my favourite things; meeting new people, going to parties, and writing poetry.

My small business grew, and I was asked to write at larger events, so I gathered the best professional writers, artists, performers and big-hearted creators I knew, and put together a band of poets to boost even more spirits!

We'll be returning to in-person events as soon as we can, until then, we're typing poems online! Would you like one?
