I’ve been selling custom written poetry for a couple of years now, I love the connection to people and making sure they have a piece of writing that they love. However, it’s a pretty difficult thing to do over the internet, and is much better when it’s immediate and in person.

There are a lot of people around who are doing similar things. Here are a few of them.

Meredith Clark at the Seattle Sunday Market.

Aaron Belz on Craigslist.

Jacqueline Suskin at the Hollywood Farmers Market.

The Poetry Takeaway here in the UK

There’s poetry everywhere and poets are now getting more and more clued in about how to take our words out and share them, how to give people the poems they want and how to connect to as many individual as possible. It’s the start of building communities and it’s lovely to see, both as a poet and a reader.
