JeFF Stumpo is a writer, educator, editor, and brainstormer. He’s the author of five short collections of poetry, as well as a spoken-word album. He taught in higher education for ten years. He continues to help other authors and teachers innovate. And he’s looking for your help.

He’s working on multiple poetry projects, a fantasy novel, and various editing jobs, but none of these bring in much income. Yet. This Patreon is conceived as subscription to a sort of one-man literary journal. You’ll get two-sentence horror stories, drafts of poems, video poems, excerpts from the novel, and conceptual essays related to the creative process. You’ll get teaching stories, the ability to ask questions about teaching, and thoughtful replies. If you’ve seen his work on Facebook or Twitter, the best stuff is migrating here.
Tiers
Sketchbook
$1 or more per month 3 patrons
You’ll get access to the Patreon feed’s most basic creative output. That means poetry of 8 lines or fewer, prose under 300 words, and Instagram images 2-5 days before they appear on Instagram (including my ongoing series, #OpenLettersToMyDaughter).
Rough Draft
$5 or more per month 8 patrons
You’ll get access to longer poems (9 lines or more), short essays and stories (500 words or more), and chapters from my novel-in-progress, Conductivity, as I complete drafts. This is currently a $5 tier. If I can get enough people to subscribe at $3/month, I'll be dropping this tier to $3 for everyone.
Final Draft
$10 or more per month 1 patron
You’ll get everything above, plus, after you’ve been subscribed for three months, I'll send you either a download code for my spoken-word album or a copy of one of my chapbooks from Seven Kitchens Press. This is currently a $10 tier; if enough people get on board at $3/month, I'll be lowering it to $5.
Goals
$49 of $100 per month
This goal pretty much establishes that I'm not shouting into the void. It means those folks on Facebook who said that the stuff I write is worth paying for really meant it. It's more existential than bill-paying, but it means something. I'm using these funds to submit work to places that have entry/reading fees, maintain accounts for creative writing, etc.
