Hello friend. 
My name is Alasdair; I'm a poet and spoken word artist living in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. 

In the past months I've been dedicating myself more fully to my art; publishing a 32 page, illustrated zine called guided meditations, competing and making it to finals at the Canadian Individual Poetry Slam, and claiming a spot on the Saskatoon team competing at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word. I've built up a fairly large roster of spoken word pieces and would love to start sharing them online in video format - my goal is to record and upload one video per month, starting July 2016. I plan to do this for free, because I don't want my art to become inaccessible, but if you would like to help me with the execution of this project, any pledge would make a difference.

I also have a database of all the written work I've produced in the past year; if you pledge to support the project, I'll happily invite you into my messy-brain archive, hosted on dropbox.  

If you don't have the means to support the project, please consider sharing this page in your network, I would genuinely appreciate any help you could provide to spread the word for what I'm trying to produce.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my Patreon.
Please stay soft.

Beautiful Angel. If you pledge $20 or more a month, I would like to personally thank you with some correspondence. I'll send you a handwritten letter or card monthly chatting conversationally about my day, thoughts, and life. I'll often include a small surprise with these written notes; little treats, mini-zines, one-shot poems. At this level you receive:
  • Access to my online archive of written work
  • The monthly newsletter
  • 5 lines of custom poetry a month
  • A custom 1 page story a month
  • A handwritten letter a month
Goals
$18 of $100 per month
At this goal, I'll be able to dedicate more time to the production, recording, and sound quality of the videos - hopefully moving into having a camera person, multiple angles, and an edited final project as opposed to a one-angle, one-take, production.
