I just wanted to let you know that I received your gorgeous demand poem written for my daughter, Jenna, today, and it brought tears to my eyes to read your incredible work!

I am utterly amazed at how you are able to garner such an intimate understanding about someone through a brief interview. I can’t wait to present this unique, meaningful gift to my daughter.

Demand Poetry, Step-by-Step

  • You tell me what you want: a customized poem for yourself? For your daughter? For a friend on their birthday or wedding? Whatever the occasion, I can write for you.
  • You choose a size: 5×7 or 8×10. Both perfect for framing.
  • I ask some questions, but not too many.
  • I write the poem. Every poem is composed on my Olivetti Lettera, greased up and reconditioned by Mr. Typewriter, himself.
  • I create a “final” version, on beautiful paper.
  • I ship the poem to you unfolded, in a sturdy C4 sized envelope.


Why is Demand Poetry is a perfect gift?

It is real time spent together, one-one-one, unravelling a part of your beautiful story.

It is full of your real experiences, real detail from both of you, but in a completely original way.

It is a brief and potent and personal.

Demand Poetry is love.
