Order a Poem
Ordering a poem is an easy three-step process. There's one thing, though: Everything is done through the mail.
Why? There's something a bit unfulfilling and impersonal about writing a quick email. You've picked this topic for a good reason, so give it the time and attention it deserves. Sit down. Write out your ideas. And then mail it to me in a real envelope. I think this simple action will produce better results.
So, here's what you do:
1. Decide what you want your poem to be about and what kinds of details you would like in the poem.
2. Draft a letter (hand written or word processed) with all of those details and what ever other background information you think I'll need. It's best to include enough information to work with but not so much that I can't figure out the main focus of what you want. A nice paragraph usually works well. (To see an example of a letter someone wrote, click here.) You can also pay for your poem at this time. Since there are no preset prices, you can pay whatever you wish. You can pay with a check made out to me, Paul Wiegel.
*Please include your return address.*
Send the letter to:
Fox River Poetry Company
W2606 Fox River Shores East
Berlin, WI 54923
3. Wait about a week while I work on your poem.
Please note that Fox River Poetry Company retains copyright on all the poems.
Why? I'd like to compile all of the poems and possibly publish them someday. The poem is yours to keep, but, who
knows, it may end up in a book, too.
When I finish I will mail your poem back to you. It will arrive in a 6x9 envelope. It will be embossed, signed, and numbered.
