The Chilean writer called himself “the people’s poet,” and he meant it. Thinking of Pablo, at this tier, you get early access to my new poems, stories, films, books, and special offers.

Though Emily often talked behind closed doors, she was very socially active with friends. In that spirit, you get private access to a bi-monthly video where I share what I'm working on, such as a new poem or poem series, short film, screenplay, or research project.

About Dave Malone

Hi. I'm Dave Malone, a poet, writer, and filmmaker from the Missouri Ozarks.

I fell in love with stories when I was young. The adventures of Dr. Doolittle, Encyclopedia Brown, and the kid heroes in A Wrinkle in Time mesmerized me and fueled my imagination. When I was nine, I learned how to write haiku, and my love for poetry was born.

Mission
As my banner above suggests, I write because I believe in celebrating the extraordinary that flourishes in ordinary moments and in ordinary places. My work and philosophy is highly influenced by Tao-Zen beliefs. Whether I am creating poems, stories, and films, my mantra is: Do the Work. Share the Work. Serve. I believe in sharing my work and serving readers and fellow writers.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is modern-day patronage where you can support artists and creators who are doing cool and necessary stuff. I support other creators, and it’s a really good feeling.

How Does My Patreon Work?
Your support provides me a complementary revenue stream to the income I receive from writing blog posts. Your support provides me more time to write and fulfill my mission and mantra as well as give me a big, emotional and spiritual boost in my writing journey.


I offer three tiers, the Pablo Neruda, for $5 a month where you get early access to my new poems, stories, films, books, and special offers, and you can be a part of our Discord chat community where we talk about literature but also anything under the sun, including some of our mutual interests, such as movies, food, nature, and history.


The middle tier, the Emily Dickinson, is $10 a month and you get a bi-monthly video where I share what I'm currently working on, such as a poem or poem series, short film, screenplay or research project. (Includes all benefits of first tier.)


At the top tier, the William Shakespeare, at $30 per month, you get a personalized poem for you or a loved one or you and I can have a video call and talk literature, poetry, movies, swap our best couscous recipes, you name it. (Includes all benefits of previous tiers.)

Thank you for your interest in my Patreon. I hope we can share a journey together. Happy writing and reading! 

Warmly from the Ozarks,
