What length of poem should I choose?
This is entirely up to you and depends heavily on the purpose of the poem. Shorter poems are great for personalising an item. For example, an engraved wooden gift or an embroidered blanket. Poems around 24 lines in length can be fairly detailed yet can still be beautifully presented on a single page. This makes them ideal for framing and giving as a gift.
Longer poems can capture a lot more information and, as such, are ideal for a speech or a reading. To give an idea of timings, 24 lines will take approximately 1-2 minutes to read, 36 lines will take approximately 2-3 minutes and 48 lines will take approximately 3-4 minutes. If you would like to discuss your requirements then please feel free to contact me.
How does it work?
Once you have placed your order, please head on over and fill in this form.
If I require any further information whilst writing your poem I will contact you again via email. In some instances I may be able to work to short deadlines but when possible, please allow at least 3 weeks for me to work on a first draft of your poem. If you need your poem sooner than this then please contact me before placing your order.
How will I receive my poem?
Initially, I will send you a first draft of your bespoke poem in the body of an email. This is your opportunity to suggest any amendments to the content. I will then go away and finalise your poem before emailing you again with a beautifully formatted PDF of your poem attached. Sending the poem digitally not only ensures that you receive your poem quickly but it also gives you the freedom to decide how best to display it.
