Looking for something a little outside the box? The Poetry Society of New York specializes in bringing poetry to weddings, public events & private parties! Here are a few of our offerings:
Wielding vintage typewriters, our professional and stylish Typewriter Poets write spontaneous, customized poems for clients, employees, & guests to take home as meaningful mementos, personalized gifts, or party favors. PSNY’s corporate Typewriter Poetry clients have included Free People, Opening Ceremony, Rag & Bone, The Macallan, Gilette, and many more.
We have worked with men, women, and everyone in between to craft meaningful, personalized poems for vows, proposals, toasts, ceremonies, gift bags, thank you notes, and more! If you’re looking for a handcrafted gift, PSNY can produce customized hard copies & ship them directly to you or the recipient. Would you like your poem typewritten & wax-sealed in a linen envelope? Of course you would! Delicately detailed packaging is our specialty.
THE TYPEWRITER PROJECT
Here’s an interesting idea for your next event: The Typewriter Project! The Typewriter Project is a tiny, rustic writing studio that invites your guests to sit down and contribute their words to a collaborative ode or collective toast! These mobile installations, when not inhabiting the parks of New York City or museums like Grounds for Sculpture, are available to rent for single-day events and short-term activations. Each little booth is outfitted with a vintage typewriter, 100-foot long paper scroll, and a custom-built USB Typewriter™ kit, which allows every keystroke to be collected, stored, and posted on your website for loved ones to read, share, and comment upon. Each entry can have its own distinct theme and style, but since each writer has the opportunity to read what was written before them on the scroll, they are encouraged to be influenced by it. By creating a new form of dialogue, this project provides a unique, creative bonding experience for your guests and a beautiful record of your event that exists in both analog and digital forms.
For more information, to book a poet, to rent a typewriter booth, or to commission a poem, please contact us! We can't wait to help you celebrate your love.
