Herein the reader will find my musings and reflections on the practice of writing gift poems for the public, and for private individuals.

Taking my Smith Corona typewriter, my signs, and my table to public markets, dinner parties, art openings, and oceanside cafés, I compose poetry on the spot for people to give to family and friends.

I compose poems to be presented to the wedding couple on the big day, as well as a special day-of-the wedding poem.

I am available via Skype for consultation. Please email me to order your gift poem today.

All names on these blog entries are changed.
