In 2014 I began using a Smith-Corona typewriter to create poems for others. Though writing is traditionally considered a solitary pursuit, I partner with strangers in the moment to create custom poetry on-demand. This work serves as a collaboration in which people offer vulnerability through storytelling and trust me to make art of their experiences. It also allows me to open others to the world of poetry who may not otherwise step through its doors.
I love writing at festivals! I’m also available for parties, weddings, and corporate events: $150 per hour. Check out my work on KERA’s Art&Seek to get a preview of the magick your guests can expect to experience.
