The phrase, "The pen is mightier than the sword," is especially true for Renaissance re-enactors being cited by police for possession of a deadly weapon. Wield the power of the written word with today's Groupon: for $125, you get a personalized bespoke poem from Poetry Salon (a $275 value).
Poetry Salon's founder, Jennifer Styperk, and her fellow poets exercise their gift for language to transform clients’ cherished stories into personalized poems. The writing process begins with a custom phone or email interview to unearth memories of romantic rendezvous, descriptive details about a friend's smile, or jovial recollections of deep-fryer mishaps. Once an able wordsmith has gathered enough material, he or she then crafts a one-of-a-kind, heartfelt poem perfect to gift to a loved one. If necessary, poets can comb over finished products with a fine-toothed editing comb during an included rewrite.
Poetry Salon’s writers are a talented bunch, wielding graduate degrees and published work in the National Anthology of Young Poets and the Texas Observer, to name a few. The poets specialize in a range of themes and styles that encompass everything from humor and contemporary verse to Victorian-era English.
