Wotsit all about?

Have you ever thought about giving a husband, wife, son, daughter or grandchild a personalised poem as a gift, or having an extensive personal profile written about you?

I have had articles on characters and wineries in the Yarra Valley published in 'Yarra Valley Country Life' magazines, and an article on the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires published in the prestigious Australia wide 'Selector' magazine.

I was resident poet at my work place and wrote comical pieces for workmates on their retirement, birthdays etc.

For $100 I will provide a a four stanza poem for interested clients with the option of extending it to your desired length for an extra $20 per verse.

Clients will be provided with a pro-forma to ensure the piece is relevant to the recipient. Two drafts will be presented for comment prior to a final draft.

A $50 non-refundable deposit will be required at booking.

Extended personal profiles of a 1000 word minimum are available at 40 cents per word. See the post on Australian actor John Wood and Yarra Valley winemaker Wally Zuk as samples of my work. (Both published)
A $100 non-refundable deposit is required for a profile. An hour interview is required so clients will need to either reside in Melbourne Australia, or be prepared to pay for a 30-60 minute telephone contact.

Contact Writer's Block at for further information or to begin organising your very special gift.
