How much does it cost?

Please send me a description of your budget and requirements. I can give you a quote, or we can agree on an hourly rate. For a short commissioned poem you can expect to pay at least $50 — it depends how much writing and research I will have to do. My standard rates are listed here. If I can’t help you myself I’ll try to suggest others who can.
