Commission Bespoke Poetry

Creating bespoke poetry is one of my favourite things to do. It’s a privilege to help people find a way to express how they feel, and to help them find a perfect gift for birthdays, weddings, festive occasions and more.

What kind of poems do you write?

I write in a range of styles, and you can see some of my published work on my poetry page. Don’t worry if none of these poems float your boat though – I can adapt my work to suit your needs.

I can use formal styles or free verse, create something modern or traditional. Best of all, you don’t have to know anything about poetry to commission me – just tell me what you want and I’ll do the rest.

A bespoke poem by Kathryn makes for a truly special gift. The poem for my mum’s 80th really captured the essence of our relationship and made us both laugh and cry (in a good way!). Thank you for a most wonderful present which will last forever.

How do you know what I want my bespoke poem to say?

I’m pretty good at asking questions, so we’ll start with the basics such as “who’s it for?” as well as talking about the occasion. After that I’ll ask you a bit more about the person who the poem is for, as well as anything specific you’d like me to include.

Sounds good – how much will a bespoke poem cost?

You can choose from one of these three packages

Package One –

Bespoke poem with woodblock printing £25.00 + p&p

An individually crafted poem, printed on FSC sourced parchment paper and decorated with woodblock stamping

The perfect present for someone special ! Personal & unique . My sister in law ( who is tricky to buy for as she’s not materialistic at all ) was very touched and was delighted with her poem . Thank you !

Package Two

Bespoke poem with digital delivery – £20.00

This is great if you’re in a hurry – I’ll create your poem, then email it either to you or the recipient.

Package Three

Bespoke poem with bespoke illustration

from £50.00

This is the Rolls Royce of the collection – I’ll create your poem as well as commissioning illustration from a local artist.

The price will vary for this package and I’ll discuss your options in detail before we go ahead.

It costs nothing to enquire – just send me an email

A very special and thoughtful gift. I was consulted throughout the whole process, from sending a brief outline of the recipient at the start, to reading the first drafts when written. It still felt like my gift even though someone else wrote it for me. My sister-in-law absolutely loved it and it was the talk of Christmas day! Thank you so much xx
