Important things to know

(We could call these ‘Terms & Conditions’ if you like.)

I normally need 14 days notice. If you can’t manage this, contact me anyway. I may be able to write your poem to a tighter deadline. I’ll let you know.

What you’ll pay: £35 (£17.50 payable when I agree the commission, £17.50 when I email your poem to you) Payment may be made by PayPal or by direct bank transfer. I’ll let you know the details when I accept your commission.

A typical recent bespoke poem was of 28 lines in seven stanzas (verses). Yours will be of a similar length. If you are wanting a longer bespoke poem, let’s discuss what you have in mind and agree a price beforehand.

I reserve the right to decline any commission. In particular, I will not write bespoke poems which are sexually explicit nor anything which I regard as abusive, including anything having racist, homophobic or misogynistic content.

I may display your bespoke poem on this website as an example, to promote my work. If you would prefer not to have you commission used in this way, please be sure to let me know. Your wish will be respected.

Personal information given to me for the purpose of writing your bespoke poem will not be shared with anyone else without your prior consent.
