Bespoke poem for any occasion

Bespoke poem for any occasion


For a truly unique and original gift, have a rhyming poem written especially for you.

It’s a wonderful, personal gift for a milestone birthday, wedding, anniversary, or as a memorial keepsake.

As an awards-winning writer and author, my poems flow really naturally and are written in the style and language you want - humorous, sentimental, or solemn for someone who's lost a loved one... And the print will match the content so it will look great too.

Here’s a typical review:

‘I loved the poem. We were laughing and crying at the same time. It was the best present I could have given him. Thank you Victoria.’


How it works:

I'll send you some questions to get the detail needed, or if you like I can ring you to discuss it more fully. As a former journalist who has interviewed Prime Ministers to pop stars, together we’ll work out exactly what you’d like.

I write my rhyming poems in two lengths.

A SHORT poem is up to 12 lines.
A STANDARD length poem is 13-28 lines.

If you want it in one of my distressed frames, please send me a message. For shorter poems I have 10 x 8 frames in white, blue and black and A4 frames in white and black for longer poems.

I can also print your poem on scroll paper which comes in a presentation box.


To see more of my poems, please take a look at the BLOG on my website -


Please contact me if you have any questions at all, if you need a poem written quickly or if you want a piece of custom writing.
