Poet in the Park

Impromptu Poems for Charity and Special Occasion Poems

JC is Ottawa’s ‘Poet in the Park.’ JC often takes a booth at arts events, where she charges a nominal amount to write a poem for people passing by on a subject of their choosing. Whatever she earns goes to a not-for-profit organization, most often The Ottawa Food Bank. She really enjoys listening to and for the stories people share with her this way.

JC reserves the right to compose poems only on subjects with which she feels comfortable and follows a ‘no returns’ policy for poems she offers. She also composes Special Occasion Poems on appropriate subjects for a fee, which would be negotiated.
