Karis Rogerson is creating novels and essays
6

patrons

$27
per each piece
Hey there, I'm Karis, a writer in New York City with big dreams of writing novels and personal essays that totally rock the world. I write a lot about mental health, because I have depression and it's my passion to see the world eradicated of stigma, and to help people understand what it's like living with a mental illness.

I'm on Patreon because, well, my depression is pretty severe. I have once-a-week therapy sessions and am about to join a group therapy group that teaches hands-on, concrete emotional management skills. But these things are expensive, and I don't always pull in enough money freelancing to pay for it. So you, my patrons, can help! Everything brought in through this medium goes straight to pay for therapy.

Here's how this will work: I'm asking for patrons to support me per piece. That means you can pledge to give me as much ($5-10!) or as little ($1 is awesome!) as you want per piece that I publish. So, as soon as a piece is approved and published, I'll charge you guys for it. This will be helpful when I publish somewhere that doesn't pay!

You should know: I write and submit a lot, so feel free to keep your pledges small and absolutely do not hesitate to have a maximum amount — say, you'll only contribute two or five times per month. 

Check out the sidebar to see what rewards a patronage will get you! And keep your eyes peeled for an intro video, coming soon!

Goals
$27 of $75 per each piece
So, $75/piece means I can cover my weekly therapy sessions with one essay! Once this happens, I'll throw an internal party, which you'll possibly be invited to, and will do something wild and crazy: I'll get one of those cheap gym memberships so I can exercise, which is so good for my mental health!
