About Bailey Poland

Welcome, and thank you for dropping by! I am so excited to be able to offer you exclusive access to my writing before it goes live.

You might already know me from Twitter, or from my book Haters: Harassment, Abuse, and Violence Online. If you don't know me yet, those are good places to start. 

Right now, I'm working on my dissertation—which includes sharing the process with patrons along the way. Each level of patronage provides access to different aspects of the dissertation, as well as other cool forms of writing (and cat pictures). 

By backing me on Patreon, you will have access to my writing process as it changes and develops, as well as more traditional blog-style posts. Once a month, I'll do some live writing for patrons at the $15+ levels—and those at higher levels have opportunities to shape what I read and review! 

If that sounds awesome to you, check out the rewards on the page! I'm so glad to have you here.  
$311.54 of $500 per month
When we hit $500/month, I will put together a video newsletter instead of an email newsletter twice a year!
