Welcome to my shop! Creating bespoke poetry is one of my favourite things to do. It brings together two of my favourite things – writing and helping people find the perfect present.
What kind of poems do you write?
I write in a range of styles, and you can see some of my published work on my poetry page. Don’t worry if none of these styles float your boat though – I can adapt my work to suit your needs, so if whether you’re looking for something lighthearted or heartfelt (or both) I can create the perfect balance of form and content to enhance what you want to say. I generally write in free verse, but can use a more formal style if you prefer.
How do you know what I want my bespoke poem to say?
I’m pretty good at asking questions, so we’ll start with the basics such as “who’s it for?” as well as talking about the occasion. After that I’ll ask you a bit more about the person who the poem is for, as well as anything specific you’d like me to include.
Sounds good – how much will a bespoke poem cost?
You can choose from one of these three packages
Package One –
Bespoke poem with woodblock printing £35.00 + p&p
An individually crafted poem, printed on FSC sourced parchment paper and decorated with woodblock stamping
Bespoke poem with digital delivery – £30.00
This is great if you’re in a hurry – I’ll create your poem, then email it either to you or the recipient.
Bespoke poem with bespoke illustration
This is the Rolls Royce of the collection – I’ll create your poem as well as commissioning illustration from a local artist.
The price will vary for this package and I’ll discuss your options in detail before we go ahead.
It costs nothing to enquire – just send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org
How long does it take?
Packages one and two will take 2-3 weeks. If you need something last minute just get in touch and I’ll see what I can do.
Package three will take a little longer depending on artist availability. Please allow at least 4 weeks.
