Hello, fellow lovers of word-magic! I'm Briari Hallow, a passionate writer of all things.

I live in Chicago and have been writing for the majority of my life - a highly imaginative child, I started writing stories as soon as I could read. Since this is the place where I'm supposed to toot my own horn, I've always been told that I write evocatively, and that my words come to life when I string them together - I hope you think that, too.

I've started this up in the hopes of helping fund some of the costs associated with being a writer - from attending workshops, going to conventions, buying books on writing (and querying, and editing, etc etc) and one day even launching my books. 

This is not meant to replace my full-time job - I love my job and still have so much to learn from it that I have no intentions of quitting that for several years to come. But, as a mid-twenty-year-old just blocks away from Wrigley, city-living is costly, and I usually don't have the extra means to invest in bookmarks, branding, and going to events that I think can benefit me as a writer.

Depending on what type of patronage you're willing to contribute, you'll be able to to have access to works in progress, brainstorming notes, unloved plot bunnies, old works, and insights into my daily life (including many pictures and videos of my cute pets...I'm talkin' cats and catsnakes, people). 

Thanks so much for joining me here - be sure to check out my website briarihallow.com and my handles on Instagram and Twitter - @briarihallow.

This name is misleading - $40 can cover the cost of some paper marketing tools such as bookmarks, business cards, etc.
