Calendar and Subscription Info

My goal is to support my family. That means that if you subscribe to my Patreon, your dollars per month are going to buy milk and rent, electricity and pens.

Everything you contribute means less energy going into chasing other gigs, and more energy and attention into my teaching and grad school studies – as well as more time to create more fiction, do more photo shoots, and generally chase the work that I love.

And in return, you receive exclusive content, essays, short stories, photography, reviews, tales from the MFA circus, reviews, online chats, coaching and critique of your own writing…

I sing for my supper.

THANK YOU to all my wonderful Patrons!
