FAQs

This is pretty cool. Would you come to our festival or farmers' market?

If it's not too far away from where I live, sure. Contact me and we can talk about it.

Can I really pay whatever I want?

Yes. There are no set fees. When you mail in your request, just include a check for whatever

amount you see fit.

How long will my poem be?

Most poems are about half a page. Anywhere between 10 and 20 lines.

How long will it take to get my poem.

It depends on how busy I am, but you will most likely receive your poem in about a week.

What kind of typewriter do you use?

My "go-to" typewriter is a 1957 Smith Corona Silent. I do own fourteen typewriters, though.

My wife said I need to stop buying typewriters now, but I'm still coveting a Hermes Rocket. If you have one,

let me know. I'll trade you a poem for it.

What if I don't like the poem you write?

Just let me know. I can work with it to make it more like what you thought it should be.

Someone I know would really like this, but...I just don't know what to say about a poem. Can I get them a gift certificate or have them contact you?

Sure, we can do that. A poem is a great gift for someone (especially if they already have everything).

You can purchase a gift certificate and then they can contact me, talk with me about what they want

in the poem, and we can go from there. The same payment rules apply to the gift certificate...you can pay

whatever you want for it.
