Howdy and hello, y’all - and welcome to my Patreon!

I'm Alexis P. Morgan, writer, artist, irreplaceable vagabond of these Internet socialist streets. Lioness of the Lwas, Black Babe Bombshell, Firebreather, Muva of Mermaids, Kicker of Kyriarchy, Buster of Bullshit, Khaleesi of Congo Square, Gythja of the Northern Reaches, Seer-Sorceress of Socialist Shenanigans. Basically every ounce of drama of my Leo Moon & Rising would suggest I am.

I occupy my time taking an axe to capitalism and oppressive fuckshit, oversharing my ongoing inner monologues, and being the fun + eccentric auntie who does witchcraft and has the bougie aesthetic of Morticia Addams crossed with Josephine Baker. When I'm not running my tiny sideshow, I'm the namesake and on the executive board of the Alexis P. Morgan Fellowship for Emerging Voices of Color. This probably won't mean much until I'm in my 30s, Gd willing.

Fun facts: I'm Black, Leftist, and Glorious AF. The monetary value of my library could buy me a flooded out Tesla, and my Internet Certified Archnemesis™ is Gary Vaynerchuk. My favourite beverage is entitled white male tears on the rocks, with a chaser of being the sexy curvy babe in a crop top.

As the daughter of Pushcart Prize-nominated poet Dominique LaBaw, and the granddaughter of internationally renowned muralist, Isaka Shamsud-Din - I am devoted to Truth, Justice, and Liberation, and live in the spirit of my foremothers:

Unbossed. Unbought. Unbothered.

Current Residence: The Windy City (Chicago, Illinois, USA)


Expectations + Productivity


If you’re here, you probably know me from - or have encountered - my ubiquitous and prolific astral-media presence, including my blog (as in: this account.)

There’s my attempts at substantive word-forging on Medium, the witty word-slinging of my gratuitous Facebook addiction, the curated visual portfolio of my life + creative explorations on the ‘gram, and my #ForeverAlone aesthetic on Twitter. There’s also the newsletter which you can sign up for on my site that I never really send. Point being: I’m fucking everywhere, a workaholic devoted to prolific proliferation of pontification and ponderous propensities. Because I'm hip like that.

Patreon funds the creation of *all* my public + private intellectual labor works, including microblogging and trying to take a more archival, long-term oriented approach to using astral-media as a community space and social canvas. It’s meant to fund the ENTIRE process of creation: the conditions that allow me to function (i.e., rent + food + body care), the research + thinking time, the actual creation, and the production and promotion of final project(s).

But, because I do have a ongoing chronic health issues (PCOS + neurological issues), I can be consistently prolific but not always punctually rhythmic when it comes to delivering polished goods and creative content. So I thought I'd take a moment to clearly articulate what you can reasonably expect from me as a patron in terms of engagement + productivity.

In receiving community support here, I commit to the intention of:
  • Maintaining the projects + commitments I outline on my website.
  • Providing at least one (1) monthly update on my progress + where I'm at on the whole.

I also make a firm commitment to providing excellent and attentive service in delivering my Patron rewards in a consistent and timely manner, as well as prioritizing having a meaningful, generative, transparent, and open relationship with my communities.


Patron Rewards + Delivery


Pledging any amount between $1- $3 a month is wonderful, deeply appreciated, and meaningful, and grants you access to most of my Patreon-only posts. You just won't receive a physical reward for doing so, but you will definitely have My Luv 4 Eva.

When you pledge to my Patreon on one of my set tiers, however, you will be asked for your contact + mailing information, although you can set your own username to protect your privacy. I will only use your address to mail you physical rewards or thank you notes - otherwise, everything is spam-free, and focused on my content and our relationship(s) being in community with one another

Rewards will be shipped via USPS - typically Priority Mail Flat Rate Shipping and become active if you've pledged for at least two months of that quarter. This is mainly because of how I need to maths out the expense of printing, assembling, and shipping out rewards, not because ya guhl is stingy.


Other Ways You Can Show Support

If you can’t swing a monthly contribution but want to send me some coins directly, Buy Me A Coffee (or several.)

But the best support is word-of-mouth and vocal, public support: showing my work to friends & colleagues, posting my work & interacting with me on social media, helping me network professionally with other creatives and interesting communities + platforms that parallel or intersect with my interests.

If you'd like to interview me, hire me, collaborate, or have me speak/attend your event, please feel free to reach out!


In Closing...


Thank you for being in community with me and affording me to be an opportunity of that vanguard without the stress, anxieties, or unpleasantries of living in a white supremacist, capitalist sh*thole as a Black woman creative.

That's fucking rad.

xo,
Alexis
