Me in a pine nut: Hello! I'm Amelia. I am a storyteller, writing coach, translator, illustrator and… really, I just want to write. 

Pistachio-sized information on what I'm doing: The past few years, I've spent most of my time helping other people achieve their writing dreams and goals. Now, I'm going to follow my own advice and try to reach my own! 

Here are my 2018 goals:
  • I will share one short story per week with my newsletter
  • I will find an agent for (at least one of) my novels
  • I will send my writing out into the world (I'm going by the '100 rejections in 2018' approach)
  • Every quarter, I will put out a physical issue of my writing. It may take the form of zines or chapbooks, or other fancy formats
  • I will publish my writing journal.

An almond about patrons: In the olden days, people with money used to take great pride in sponsoring the arts. Patrons would support artists with money, and have plays, books, sonnets and love letters written in their honour as way of thanks. 

A Brazil nut worth on Patreon: With the wonders of the internet, you can be a patron for less than the price of a cup of coffee. All my patrons get access to my exclusive Patreon feed and online LIVE events every other month! From there, it just gets better, with extra short stories and events only available to my patrons; chapbooks, zines, letters and even personalised sonnets! 

You can be a patron for a single month or for as long as you like. Either way, you get the reward and my undying gratitude.

Thank you! You're helping me cover the costs of my blog and newsletter so I can share my writing with the world. You get everything mentioned above, a monthly short story only available to my patrons and a quarterly zine (mini-magazine) in the mail! 
Bread and butter
$10 or more per month
Thank you! You are helping me cover some of the day-to-day costs of my company so I can spend more time writing and less time translating instruction manuals. You get everything mentioned above, as well as access to quarterly special events like readings, workshops and writing sessions.
An hour and a half of writing

Thank you so much! You're sponsoring a full, proper writing session. You get everything mentioned above, as well as a copy of each of my quarterly chapbooks in the mail. (This is roughly £18)
Rights of patronage
$40 or more per month
Thank you so much! You're helping me spend more time experimenting with my voice and formats. You get everything mentioned above, as well as a personal letter of patronage with each of your quarterly parcels. I will wrangle my skills with words and imagery into giving you some truly personal pages of writing. (This is roughly £30)
Scroll of patronage
$65 or more per month only 15 left
Thank you so much! You've given me an entire half day of writing, and I cannot believe your generosity! In addition to everything above, I will make you a personalised proof of patronage and invite you to a monthly hangout session that is only for the top three tiers. As this will be a very small group, it will open for very personal content and feedback on your own writing if you wish. (This is roughly £50)
Patron of position
$100 or more per month only 5 left
Thank you so much! I don't know who you are, but I definitely have feelings for you. And how does a writer best express their feelings? Through a sonnet, of course.  In addition to everything above, I will write you a personal sonnet, all about you and your wonderful ways. I will make it look all beautiful so you can show it off to your fancy friends and show how you are a supporter of the arts. (This is roughly £75)
You get everything!
$130 or more per month
Thank you SO MUCH! I don't know who you are, but I can't express my gratitude enough. In addition to everything mentioned above, you get a hard copy of anything I produce, publish, print or put to press for as long as you remain my patron and for 3 months after your final month of patronage. It's not enough for your generous gift, but it is – quite literally – all I have to offer. (This is roughly £100)
Goals
$152 of $250 per month
Monthly podcast! When we reach $250 per month (roughly £190), I will start recording a monthly podcast, featuring bits of my worst writing of the month (teenage poetry may also come up), interviews with other writers and answers to your most pressing questions.
