About Alex Rettie

I've been writing poems since I was in my teens. I've made next to no money at it, but I do it because I love it. Now I'm working on a major project (and yes, writing poetry is work) -- a 40-page poem about the 1970s that intertangles the public and the private, and the adult world with that of children. You can read some of it in the public posts below. Subscribers will see drafts as I write and revise them, and the whole piece when it's finished and printed.

Thank you for joining me in this work. Being a part of my Patreon community means access to new sections of the poem in draft form, an opportunity to respond and help shape the work, and even to have people, places or events that are important to you make it into the final product. I'm excited to be working with you!


$9.10 of $500 per month
When I hit $500 a month, I'll be able to devote enough time to writing, and enough money to production of a chapbook, that I'll have the finished product to you in 6 months!
