Write Me a Poem gift certificates are great for lovers of poetry, for friends or family with a special creative or artsy streak, for people who are hard to find a gift for – or just for that last minute gift or stocking stuffer.
GIFT CERTIFICATE: One “Poetry on Demand” customized poem from Write Me a Poem! by Majo John Madden, Ph.D.
Here’s how it works – or actually two ways it can work:
- You buy the poem, tell me the topic (“my sister Louise”, “my brother’s dog woofy” – whoever) and a couple words, sentences or paragraphs about that person, dog (whatever, but I do specialize in dog poems). I write the poem and send it to you through some medium – or meet up with you and give you a hard copy (or mail it, if time is on your side).
- You send/give the gift certificate to the receiver. They get together with me – in person, by Skype or email, whatever – and tell me what they would like the poem to be about, and I write it for them. Then I read it to them and follow up by emailing it to them.
The cost is whatever amount over $10 feels right to you – something that reflects the value of the poem for you. Keep in mind that these poems regularly make people cry and can significantly shift how they think about something in their lives – or how they think/feel about themselves! So far this holiday season, the rate people have paid me has ranged from $10 to $60 (for his troubled grandniece – he just knew it was going to be helpful to her).
Call or text (828-582-9822) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Facebook (heymajo) me – or catch me at church or something – if you are interested or have questions.
