Each Brainstormer Patron reminds me that paying attention to my ideas and process is important. You force me to slow down just a bit as I create in order to think about what might be good to share with you. And that thinking time is actually helpful to my process. Thank you!

  

  • A listing (optional—some Patrons prefer to remain anonymous) on the Patrons page of my website with a link to your site or online presence


  • At least four posts per month sharing bits of my writing career—poem drafts, excerpts of picture book drafts, revision thoughts, publishing process, etc.


  • Access to all past posts


  • My deep gratitude and a big hug when I see you in person!
Drafter
$4
per month

 I'm usually doing a million things at once. Each Drafter Patron encourages me to find a little chunk of time to ignore my non-writing to-do list. You remind me that the drafting, the revising, the actual writing—that’s my most important activity. It’s helpful to have that nudge when submissions and marketing and speaking threaten to take up all my time.  Thank you!

About

Welcome! I'm Laura Purdie Salas, and I'm a children's writer and poet. I've written more than 130 books for kids, and some of them have received nice honors and awards. In addition to writing, I love to teach, support, and inspire educators and other writers. (Please hop over to my website for examples of the kinds of writing I do!)

I'm working on a number of different poetry and picture book projects, and I'm sharing my writing process along the way with this community. If you're a children's writer or a writing teacher or a children's book or poetry lover, I hope you'll find these peaks into my writing process both helpful and inspiring!

Your patronage allows me to turn down a couple of paying freelance assignments each month so that I can spend time working on the writing projects I love AND also spend time sharing that process with you.

Thank you so much for considering becoming a supporter!

Goals
27 of 100 patrons
At 100 Patrons (of any tier), I will begin creating one video monthly, where I share something about my writing or revision process or something from behind-the-scenes in my working writer’s life.
