Lovelies, I have an incredibly exciting announcement to share with you today: I have recently joined Patreon! In case you have not heard of it: Patreon is a small website which works off of the old-fashioned idea of patronage: stardusted creatures & lovers of art supporting the ones who make such art happen. It is a platform through which you may financially "tip" the work that I create—and, in return, receive a great number of perks which I am so over the moon to share with you.
In supporting me, you will receive behind-the-scenes looks into my many projects before I speak a word of them to any other souls, and have the unique opportunity to provide feedback and thoughts on the way my art is shaping up (which I am slightly apprehensive but no less exhilarated about!). Also: a short story I wrote much like “The Incredible Weight of Feathers”. Monthly artistic care packages with mixtapes and collections of all the work I have created during that month. Your name in the acknowledgements of my books. Skype calls where I can chat with you and critique your own work. A custom poem or short story written just for you. Free access to future paid creations. And more, and more, and more.
My hope for this is to connect with you on a deeper level than I am already, through sharing my writing & other projects with you at all stages of the process—not just the end product, as I am at the moment. Right now I am working on perhaps the most incredible, ambitious project I have ever embarked upon. I want you to be part of this journey, and all the rest.
Thank you so much for your support. Especially fellow artists, which so many of you are - you know well that every little bit counts. And the most beautiful thing is, fostering art is financially easier ever than before; quite literally, you may help me create words & music for less than the price of two cups of coffee per year. I would be so honoured if you took the time to support me & help me do what makes my soul sing.
Thank you, lovelies. It means the universe & more to me.
