The phrase, "the pen is mightier than the sword," is especially true for Renaissance reenactors being cited by police for possession of a deadly weapon. Wield the power of the written word with today's Groupon: for $95, you get a personalized 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 for any occasion. The writing process begins with a custom phone or email interview to unearth starry-eyed memories of romantic rendezvous, descriptive details about an admirer’s smile, or the circumstances surrounding that first shared milkshake. 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. An ideal gift for Valentine’s Day, Poetry Salon’s scribes provide paramours an original way to say “I love you” that doesn’t involve digging up old boom boxes and dusty Peter Gabriel cassettes.
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.
