I offer a personal writing service – for celebrations, for commiserations, for weddings, for funerals, to speak to one person, to help you process something yourself or to entertain a crowd – and I usually write in the form of rhyming poetry.
So, If you know what you want to say, but just don’t know how to say it….then maybe I can help…
I take the greatest of care with each commission in creating a unique and personal story, based on the chats we have and the information I’m given . I also take great pride in valuing our relationship during the process, with a view to capturing as closely as possible the very essence of what you’d like to say.
If you commission me to write for you, we’ll spend some time discussing, in detail, what you’d like included in the poem, how long it should be and the tone it should take. This can be done via email, phone or Skype – whichever you’d prefer. I can also meet with you in person if you live in Central Scotland.
When the poem’s complete, I’ll send you a private link to a recording of me reciting it. How the poem sounds is just as important as how it reads. The recording will also serve to help you practice if you’re going to be reciting the poem in front of an audience (or, to one special person).
If there’s anything at all about the finished piece you’re unhappy with, I’ll do my very best to make it right before requesting payment.
Then, the poem will belong to you*
How much will your poem cost?
Every poem I write is unique, so every commission is priced on an individual basis, depending on the poem’s length and on the work involved in creating it.
Please do contact me if you’d like some more information, or if you’d like a quotation for me to write for you.
Speaking at Events:
I can also take commissions to speak at occasions or events for you, with a unique poem or prose crafted from the information you’ve given me (or from the research I’ve carried out on your behalf if the occasion, topic or subject demands it). Please do contact me if you’d like to discuss this further.
A few of of my clients’ words:
“You couldn’t have captured the essence of my thoughts about mum any better. I love that it’s written as my thinking. I love that you sent it to me as a recording so that I could hear its song and musicality…the poem is truly wonderful…”
“I couldn’t begin to tell you the impact Jane’s poem has had on me…and the therapeutic benefit of going through this process with her…I will cherish it forever…”
“I love the poem. Listening to it being read out was my favourite part of the day Jane. You have such a lovely funny way with words and I love that it has some of the stories I thought were long forgotten…really special…”
