We set up at your corporate event, wedding reception, or hip restaurant and provide on-the-spot poems for your employees, guests, or patrons.

They provide a topic and we write a poem - often whimsical, often heartfelt, and certainly gratefully received.

Poems are typed on 5.5 x 8.5 sheets of paper; on which we will happily add your logo.  Now you'll be remembered every time they pass the poem they've stuck on the fridge!

Contact us (below) for a quote. Rates vary depending on event type, day of week, and travel distance.  For restaurants, markets, breweries, and the like, we work off a tip-based system and a fee to cover travel and materials.  Rates for weddings, parties, and corporate events start at $50/hour and include a materials fee.

"thank you again for such a beautiful poem, it definitely meant a lot to me"

- Bryn M.

"Apparently, I'm a breakfasteer! That's so going on my business card. Thanks for the dope rhymes."

- Craig, Baltimore Waffle Company
