Help me create resources for everyone
 

99% of my work is free and accessible for folks who can't afford a paywall.


But if you sign up to support my work, you'll get access to bonus content and extra shenanigans.


Collaborator-Supporters get:

  • Exclusive content

    Get access to all of the exclusive patron-only content, such as the Smashing Wealth Inequality series, problematic book analysis videos, booklists-in-progress , and polls to help me focus new content where you want it to go.
     
  • Inbox updates

    Until we can raise resources to restart the free email newsletter, the only folks who can get inbox updates are patreon supporters - sent whenever I create new content via Patreon post.
  • Early Access

    Get sneak peeks on upcoming website articles so you can beat the library request rush when the book list goes public.


  • Unpolished Booklist Bonus Content

    Get access to my ever-growing content library of book reviews that I don't have time to polish for public consumption.

    This unfiltered, unpolished content library is where I rant, compile rough-draft collections, and analyze problematic books that don't fit in our monthly website collections.

Connect with Dedicated Kyriarchy-Smashers

We created Raising Luminaries to provide resources for all parents and educators raising kind and brilliant kids.

In the Luminary community, we're connecting deeply and hosting conversations to navigate the challenges that come with raising socially conscious kids - beyond book lists.


Luminary-Supporters get:

  • You get the same rewards as the Collaborator supporters, plus...
  • Join The Luminary Brain Trust - My favoritest place on the interwebs!

    Join us in The Luminary Brain Trust, a private Facebook group where we're tacking in-depth discussions, troubleshoot challenges, and work together.

    I host two guided posts each week, where we explore and reaffirm ways to keep our personal activism work sustainable.

    Join our Trauma Stewardship discussion to prevent and heal from activist burn out, the Pod Community series on sustaining interdependent communities to raise resilient kids, our grown-up book club discussions on books by Indigenous authors and authors of color.

    Find solidarity and a place to share your challenges and accomplishments in our weekend open threads.

    If you want to connect with me, this is the place to ask questions, get advice from some of the smartest folks I know, and find a community of support.  Help me figure out how to make BFL sustainable and accountable, and also... uhh, there are lots of goofy gifs.
CO-CONSPIRATOR
$50 or more per month

Spend less time on redundant research and more time smashing the kyriarchy.


I tend to freak out when you guys support BFL at this above-and-beyond level. I tell all my friends about you.



Shenanigans include:

  • The same rewards as previous tiers, plus…

  • Ethical Peace Of Mind

    Have a clear conscience when you repackage, find inspiration, and spin off the stuff you learn in BFL in your personal blog and career assignments.

  • Super-Priority Attention

    This could go unsaid, but OBVIOUSLY I'll prioritize your requests. Once a month, send me private requests for advice or book lists and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

    I'm not just willing to hear from you, I am eager to help! Because you are a rockstar and I like you.

  • Let's meet up, if that's your thing

    If we’re ever in the same city, let’s get together over coffee (or whatever) to brainstorm how BFL can become even more mega-awesome!   


Illuminati
$175 or more per month

1 of 2 spots available

Want 1-on-1 guidance?


We're in cahoots.

You're an author, consultant, educator, librarian, literary specialist,  organization leader, or anyone who needs private, 1-on-1 time to get answers to your questions. 


Shenanigans include:


  • 1-on-1 Consulting

    30 minutes of my undivided attention each month on a topic of your choice, via phone, online chat, email, or video chat.

  • Ethical Accountability Guidance

    Confidence that you're taking steps to create an inclusive organization. I'll give you gentle, honest advice when your material or policies need tweaking.

  • I Shall Sing Your Praises

    Did you see how many things I do? A LOT OF THINGS. And I'm happy to boost your organization and tell everyone about it (with full transparency, and only if your organization really is awesome and right for readers).

    Learn more on the BFL services page.

  • Emotional Labor & Experienced Wisdom

    I get a LOT of people who just want to connect with me for phone calls 1-on-1 but GOSH I have childcare to pay for while you pick my brain.

    This covers my expenses while I give you access to years of my expertise, research, and do the emotional labor dance of gently addressing all your questions.

    From there, we'll create a plan for how you can move forward with your project.


  • Clear Step-By-Step Guidance

    When you schedule your monthly consult, I'll reach out with easy-to-answer questions so I can make the best use of our time together.

    During our time, I'll share clear accountability guidelines to make sure you feel safe sharing and brainstorming.

    After, I follow up with resources, a recap of our talk, and action steps to easily implement the plans we discussed.


This is mostly contract-style work outside of patreon, but I have it listed here for reference. Contact me for availability and to find out how becoming an Illuminati can work for you.
