Why don't you get a job?

As a matter of fact, I DO have a job. I'm a freelance copywriter and web content strategist. Your patronage is a supplement to the money I earn writing for other people, and is a demonstration of your faith in my art. It helps keep the lights on and supplements my travels, which I share with you in my podcast.

Why be a patron?

Patreon allows you to be a monthly patron... a creative partner, really. For $5 a month, probably more than you spend on coffee at your favorite coffee shop, you can help support the arts by supporting an artist. For this $5, you get special access through special, For Patron Only podcasts, and special Thank Yous from me, including a personalized poem and first crack at any publications.

Art is, first and foremost, a form of communication; and it's my fervent desire to communicate with my friends and folk … those who support what I do... in the most direct way possible. In a very real way, a small amount of financial support from you speaks volumes... not only about  your exemplary taste and temperament, but about your belief in the need for poetry and language in your life and in the world.
