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

I am Alexis P. Morgan, accidental Abbess of the Church of St. Felicia, 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.

As a professional writer, artist, performer, and tradition-tender, and the mission of everything I do + create now as a maturing creative is to contribute to an emerging culture of Afrofuturist potential, rooted in exploring the values of Truth, Justice, and Liberation.

To paraphrase myself: “My intention when creating is to understand the way I see and what I see. My sole job as a creative is to articulate visions worth tattooing.”


The Vision + Mission


I’m a professional change-maker, powered by tenacious faith, the occasional spot of caffeine, and a deep reverence for Spirit In All Things.

I sit at the intersection of a variety of identities + a spectrum of human emotions and relationships, and I have a complex personal narrative a result that makes me preternaturally well-equipped to do this whole ‘professional weirdo’ gig, especially in the 21st century. We’re in an age + place + time of late stage capitalist collapse where anything is possible and the opportunity to dramatically reshape our society + our relationship with the rest of Life is infinite, but only if we are willing to risk the smothering comfort of what we know for the dynamism and discomfort of creating what could come next.

Financial independence and security for liberation-minded creatives is utterly vital.

Patreon is made for you. Us. It’s a we thing, babe.

This platform provides the tools to easily create community investment in my body of work, while I work on dreaming up the possibilities for alchemizing the fuck out of my collectivist, Afrofuturist woo, comedic fever-dreams of grandeur are unknowable in this moment. Possibilities are only limited by my + our creative imagination here. 

By becoming a patron, you’re creating the space - through your financial endorsement + social support - and trusting me your collective influence, freedom, and opportunity to help advocate for and envision what we could be creating next as a species with integrity, courage, and adventure.


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. I even have a Pinterest and I’ll probably get me one of those Snappity Chat things, too, but those aren’t as interesting. 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).

Because I do have a neurological disability - and issues with mental health due to neurodivergence, PTSD from ACEs, and the confetti sprinkle topping that is being in ED recovery - I’m 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 promise to:
  • Commit to the intention of creating at least one (1) work of art every month.
  • Commit to the intention to write at least one (1) short story, chapter, or essay on Medium every quarter.
  • Prioritize developing a meaningful, productive, responsive, and open relationship with my community
  • Provide monthly updates on my progress + where I’m at professionally.
  • Provide excellent service in delivering patron rewards consistently and in a timely manner.

Patron Rewards + Delivery


When you pledge to my Patreon, you will be asked for your contact + mailing information, although you can choose your username. I will only use your address to mail you physical rewards or thank you notes - otherwise, everything is spam-free.


Other Ways You Can Show Support

If you can’t swing a monthly contribution but want to send me some coins, I’ve got a page on my website for doing that.

But the best support is word-of-mouth: 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.


In Closing...


Let's burn this motherfucker down so we can get free together.

Thank you for putting your money where your mouth is and for coming along for this ride.

XOXO
