As a Patron you are joining in the process of encouraging new art to be born into the world. You are front and center and first to know... you're part of the conversation.  You'll have access to all the short stories, flash fictions, essays and poems (the “things”) I create, of course... but more than that you'll get the stories behind the stories, the audio versions, random things I’ve found I think you might like to know about, book recommendations, pottery videos, poetry readings, things that make you go “hmmmm”, and all sorts of interesting detours delivered neatly to your inbox.

About Kelly Rainey

Spinning the Cosmic Art Wheel

   I am a writer and a potter and a lover of art in all its many forms. I’m fascinated with oddities and unusual perspectives and relish deep dive conversations into things not often discussed.

…and I’d like to share all of these things with you.

Think of Patreon, my little corner of it anyway, as a portal to all the behind-the-scenes stuff that simply doesn’t fit on my other platforms… a home for all the little extras. It’s a way for me to share what fuels and feeds my creative process and for you to be a part of it.

Though I’ll share much, much more than my short stories, flash fictions, essays, and poems…these are the “things” that we’ll use to spin the cosmic art wheel. Each new “thing” (short story, flash fiction, essay or poem) triggers an automatic contribution of $1 from each of my Patrons that I’ll use to support art and artists from around the globe.

As a Patron, you are not buying a finished product… you are joining in the process of encouraging new art to be born into the world. You are front and center and first to know. The short stories, flash fictions, essays and poems (the “things”) themselves will be shared freely and publicly on my other platforms (with rare exception), but the rest of all I post here on Patreon... the stories behind the stories, the audio versions, random things I’ve found I think you might like to know about, book recommendations, pottery videos, poetry readings, things that make you go “hmmmm”, and all sorts of interesting detours… these posts, delivered neatly to your inbox, are the free perks of joining this community of Patrons.

So how exactly does it all work? Patreon is set up much like a monthly subscription service, although I’ve opted to charge Patrons $1 per creation (“thing”) rather than a set monthly amount. Why? Because sometimes life pulls me in other directions and I never want you to be charged when I haven’t created something for you. On the flip side… I never want an especially creative month to take you by surprise and cost you more than you bargained for…so I fully support capping your pledge ( here’s how) to a monthly total amount you are completely comfortable with. Even if you cap, you’ll still get access to everything. Any support of art, in my opinion, is welcome and encouraged and I appreciate the trust you place in me to create things that will bring you joy.

Here’s Patreon’s official explanation of how “per thing” billing works. Just remember, most of my posts here are free to Patrons. You’ll only ever be charged for paid posts, otherwise known as official “things”… the short stories, flash fictions, essays, and poems.

Have more questions? Feel free to scroll through my past posts to get an idea of the sort of things I like to share (the public ones you’ll be able to open and read before deciding if you want to join). And if you’re not already familiar with my writing, you can read for free at 500WordsandCounting. You can also email me anytime and I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your interest in what I'm doing here!
