I like NPR. I like the way they do things, especially their awesome pledge drives, so when I discovered that individual artists can raise funds in much the same fashion, by attracting appreciative, sustaining patrons, I simply had to jump on board. Today marks the glorious launch of my Patreon account, where you can pledge as little as a dollar a month for cool rewards, like signed, personalized Halloween cards, or as much as $20 a month for custom art work and eternal gratitude. If you’ve stumbled upon this page because you enjoy what I do (most likely my writing), consider supporting that which you enjoy. And if you’re not into me in particular, I am sure you can find someone else whose creative output you’ll want to encourage. Patronize the arts, my friends, and the world will be a better place. Neglect the arts and…well…look around you.
If you are inclined to share/signal boost, my Patreon url is:
Even more good news, everyone! The second issue of Hermeneutic Chaos, a lovely new literary journal, has just become available online (at no cost), and I am proud to have two of my poems included between its digital covers. Yet again, it’s wonderful to be published in such good company. Please do check it out.
To view the journal itself, simply follow the link, scroll down a bit, and select the format you’d prefer (you can either download a PDF or read it directly via the “Online” option).
Good news everyone! A poem by yours truly has been published in the inaugural issue of the already excellent Wu-wei Fashion Magazine. Check it out. It’s online and quite free. The good folks at Wu-wei have done a fantastic job with the design, and I’m in great company; the other selections are top notch.
Mine is the untitled one.
This website will have to do for now, until I decide to redesign it again, which will probably be next month, or tomorrow, or five years from now. In any case, till that day comes, I might as well make use of the site as is. Welcome, welcome!
