About Rae White
Why is your Patreon about birds?
When I write, I sit at my window and see many birds outside - this is why my Patreon tiers are all named after Aussie birds! Around midday, my kookaburra mates sit on the clothesline and have a good cackle. Later, the curlews (aka tall spooky ghost birds) will wail at the setting sun and continue to cry into the evening. It's no wonder these bird babes feature so much in my writing. I love working in my Meanjin home and would like to do so as much as possible, with your help!
Who the heck are you again?
I'm Rae :) My poetry collection ‘Milk Teeth’ (UQP 2018) won the 2017 Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize, was shortlisted for 2019 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards and commended in the 2018 Anne Elder Award. (Psst, if you pledge $20 or more, you can hear about my writing and editing process of this book and what I'm currently working on in a monthly PDF perzine). My poem ‘who, what, why, where’ was shortlisted for 2020 Woollahra Digital Literary Awards. My poem ‘hussshhh’ won Best Queensland Entry in 2019 XYZ Prize for Innovation in Spoken Word. And my poem ‘what even r u?’ placed second in 2017 Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize.
I've written zines on many topics: succulents, poetry, feminism and Rabbit Island! You can buy my zines at my Etsy shop. (And if you pledge $5 or more, you'll receive a zine discount code!)
You can find out more about me on my website.
