For custom poetry, I always work from a negotiated price. It takes into account the amount of time I’ll need to do a superior job…as well as your budget, of course. It also factors in how you want your poem delivered; there’s another page on this website that covers those options.
I don’t have a set pricing formula, but I do have a rule of thumb:
High quality. Low price. Quick delivery. Choose any two.
This is my way of saying that I want to deliver the best possible result for you, and hope to have ample time to create it. But I’m willing to negotiate the timeframe you need into the price parameters.
Know, too, that the more information you provide, the easier it is for me to offer a low price. Why? Simple: I don’t have to work as hard to develop powerful, meaningful poetry when I can draw upon lots of facts.
Once we’ve negotiated price, timeframe and delivery format, I’ll ask for 50% payment up front by check or money order, with the remainder payable upon delivery.
