About Victor D. Infante

Hello! My name is Victor Infante, and this is my Patreon. Welcome! There are really good odds that you know me as the entertainment editor for The Worcester Telegram & Gazette and the content editor of Worcester Magazine. You may even know me as the host of the podcast Worcester Culture Watch on Unity Radio 97.9 FM, or as a judge on the WCCA TV singing competition, New Voices. I keep myself busy.

Therein lies my problem: I'm something of a workaholic, and tend to prioritize journalism to the expense of creating poetry and fiction. Which, in a lot of ways, feels odd, as not terribly long ago that was the most forward facing aspect of my public life. So .... no journalism talk, here. That's what social media is for!

My poetry and fiction has appeared in numerous periodicals and anthologies, including Chiron Review, Spillway, Word Riot, Blue Satellite, The Nervous Breakdown, Pearl, The Collagist, Barrelhouse, Poetry Slam: The Competitive Art of Performance Poetry, Spoken Word Revolution Redux, the Murder Ink: Tales of New England Crime series, The Last American Valentine: Poems to Seduce and Destroy, Aim For the Head: An Anthology of Zombie Poetry and The Incredible Sestina Anthology. I've also published one full-length poetry collection, City of Insomnia, on Write Bloody Publishing. Like I said, I keep busy.

Which leads us to this Patreon: Poetry and fiction are at the heart of my writing life, and I'd like to use this site as a way to create a structure to help me prioritize them again. My goal is to finish revising my first novel, Why We Should Suffer For This, and find a home for it, as well as to publish my second collection of poetry. To accomplish this, I need the help and support of a community that will challenge me and keep me on task. That's where you come in: I honestly have no idea if or how this crazy thing is going to work, but I hope we all find out together. Thank you in advance for your support. Now … time to get back to work!
