Villanelle is a specific form of poetry simply defined as a highly expressive, rhythmical literary piece. For the purposes of this shop, Villanelle is making words into art.

With this in mind, I established the Villanelle e-boutique in early 2012 as a means for sharing my words and art with others. I sell original poetry and essay, individually handwritten or typed on an authentic 1932 Remington Rand typewriter.

I believe everyone has something to say, so if you have your own words to share, I can happily serve as typist or scribe to create your personalized word art. I have completed pieces for clients' walls, such as handcrafted gifts and letters, and even designed the wording for tattoos. 

Villanelle is an a la carte shop. You'll need to select each step and add it to the cart. Choose my words or yours; then choose to have the piece typed or handwritten. If you have any questions about how to order, simply use the contact form and I can assist you. 

I am happy to work with you on custom orders such as original stationary pieces featuring both type and handwritten messages of greeting, gratitude, and care in English and French. Contact me for more information on custom orders.
