About Chad Parenteau

I am a writer, poet, editor, reviewer, amateur filmmaker, and overall content creator living in Boston. I also run Stone Soup Poetry, a long-running spoken word venue in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I have a solid track record with over twenty years worth of publications and fifteen years as an event host, panelist and workshop facilitator. I have written original collections of poetry, edited anthologies, and created videos featuring an array of past poets who have read at Stone Soup and much more. 

In recent years, in addition to my ongoing publication credits, I've become a regular online content provider. Aside from my editorial contributions to the online journal Oddball Magazine, I currently have a weekly poetry column ("Stone Soup Servings") on my blog and three prose columns over at Medium, which has allowed me to become a regular contributor on the website Politics Means Politics.

I would love to branch out into other areas. I have produced videos over the years and long to take a bigger plunge into other outlets like research-based reporting, podcasts and video-making. For now, however, I want to be able to provide more regular content. Another long-term goal would be to make even more of an effort to capture the artistic voices in the Boston area and the stories that are becoming lost to time. 

I have a steady job, so at this time additional funds not needed to pay my bills. That said, living in Boston is expensive and takes up more and more time to accomplish. It would be great to acquire funds that not only improve and expand my content but allow me to create it at a faster pace.Therefore, I'm taking the Patreon plunge.

This page is a work in progress. I will be tweaking this page as weeks go by in order to assess reasonable goals and rewards. I thank you for your interest and your patience as I continue my work.
