Hello.

My name is Holly Painter, and I am the poet in Hire a Poet. I hold a BA in English and Philosophy from the University of Southern California and an MFA in Creative Writing (Poetry) from the University of Canterbury (Christchurch, New Zealand). I’ve taught English and Creative Writing at several colleges in Southeast Michigan, and I also volunteered at 826michigan, helping kids develop their creative and academic writing skills. I currently live in Singapore, where I work as a writer and copy-editor.

And I write poems. Obviously. I have two books of poetry coming out in the next year: Wanderlust and Excerpts from a Natural History.

Please have a look at my Hire a Poet service and my poetry portfolio. If you need a poem and you’d also like to help me reach my goal of eating three meals a day and growing big and strong, email me at hollypainter(at)gmail(dot)com.
