Yeah, now that doesn’t make any sense – but that’s why Desktop Poet is so much fun! Just like those little magnetic tiles for the front of your ‘fridge that have been around since the 90′s, Desktop Poet turns your desktop into a “virtual fridge” area so that you can be as creative – and silly – as you want!
Whether, poet, novelist, playwright, educator, student or a person with a little time on your hands, Desktop Poet puts hundreds of words right at your fingertips. Move them around to create your poems, prose or to brainstorm. The tiles become a visual embodiment of the English language, freeing you to let your mind travel through uncharted territory.
This is no “shoot-em up” game. Desktop Poet assists younger kids grasp simple word structure in a fun way. Other kids can showcase their creative flair. Whether in the classroom or at home, kids can play with words and in the process – learn.
"If you took a survey of elementary, middle and high school teachers, I would bet you a million bucks that they would agree that correct grammar is a tool that has been lost along the way. The uses of spelling and grammar are not stressed enough in our society today. Good for you, Mariner Software and thank you for Desktop Poet."

You can increase the available vocabulary and decrease the number of tiles. A single tile can have multiple word variations. Highlight the word, click escape and, for example, picture becomes: pictures, picturing, pictured. Need more? Set backgrounds, colors and more, making Desktop Poet a creative wonder world.
