...so, how does JiggeryPoetry work?

It's jiggering easy!

Step One: You've already found me so I'm guessing you need a poem or a speech. Browse the texts on here and if they've made you smile and you think I'm the one who can help, move on to Step Two.

Step Two: Give me a ring, send me an email or fill in the contact form and we'll have a natter. (Based on what you've seen of my poetry, you may stress a preference for the style and length of poem you require - be sure to check with me for pricing options.)

Step Three: Wait for your poem/speech to arrive (you won't be waiting long). After making payment, you will receive an electronic version and a voicefile of a reading on or before the agreed deadline. JiggeryPoetry poems are always excellent value and on time. (I don't charge extra for further redrafts like some writing services do - I'll redraft as much as you like so that we can get the poem perfect - however many times it takes!)


What exactly do you need from me?

As soon as you get in touch, I'll email you a form which will ask you some questions about the person you want the poem/speech for. Complete the form with as much detail as you want to reveal and spin it back to me. Or (and this is an even better option) give me a ring and we'll have a natter.

How long does it take?

JiggeryPoetry is fast: 2-3 weeks from contact to delivery. Although it may take a little longer if you want to spend time checking and rechecking drafts of you poem/speech. (I would definitely advise this as you and I want your poem to be right, so feel free to take your time.)

What do I receive?

Electronic copy and voicefile.  

What if I need something completely different?

Get in touch. At JiggeryPoetry, anything's possible.

For Gemma

For Gemma

And now for something different, not really in the script,
That makes a bit more sense the more pints of beer you’ve sipped.
For yes, I have a secret, and not a lot of people know it -
You guessed it everybody: I’ve turned into a writer… poet! I’ve turned into a poet!

Ok, that’s not the best of starts; rhyme really ain’t my business.
I’m up here in the sunshine to pay tribute and bear witness
To our lovely daughter Gemma, as time rolls on too fast.
So let’s enjoy her blushes, as we delve into her past.

We’ll start at the beginning and we’ll end up at the end.
Then let me introduce to you, her imaginary friend.
‘Beg,’ if I recall, was this little creature’s name,
And he took over our lives, but it started as a game.
