that’s Lisa ann at the typewriter. She’s SHARING experiential poetry, interpreting a story, an idea, or even a single word she heard from the woman sitting across from her - an event attendee about to receive something unforgettable.


WHAT ARE WE KNOWN FOR?

  1. You hire OUR POETS for your next event

  2. We listen to your needs and customize the poetic experience (we know every event is unique)

  3. We show up, dressed to elevate your theme, and take to our creative command center for the night

  4. Your guests tell us their stories: what delights them, what is meaningful to them, anything at all (this can be from a general “what’s your topic” prompt, or a more specific one based on your event’s theme)

  5. We write each guest a customized haiku or other form of poem based on what we hear

  6. Everyone takes home a one-of-a-kind keepsake of the event with your social info, logo, or other custom elements featured on the cards (many of our poems have been framed, gram’d, and some even tattooed)

  7. You can’t wait to hire us again ;)
