Hi. I’m Dave Malone, a poet and writer. Thank you for your interest in becoming a patron.

Why I'm on Patreon
I enjoy enriching lives through poetry. My goal is to spend more of my time writing and less time editing manuscripts and designing websites (though these jobs are a lot of fun). Recently, I have been sharing "Friday Poems" on Facebook, and it's been so much fun. I want to share more poems online, finish my eighth volume, and engage with patrons in unique ways.

Patreon Benefits for You, Me, and Others
* You may in fact get overwhelmed by the warm, fuzzy feeling of being a patron.
* I will be very thankful.
* Your patronage provides me the financial resources to have more time to write poems and connect people to poetry and less time where I am editing manuscripts and designing websites. It allows me more time to share poems for anyone to read on my website and on Facebook; to write new poems (very exciting!); finish my 8th book of poetry, How to Write Poems (also exciting!); to craft my poetry newsletter, The Rule of Three, and even work on side projects, such as short films and a series of novelettes I’d really love to finish. One of the sweetest rewards is that your patronage allows me time to engage with you and others online, in person, and through teaching workshops, where I can give back.

What’s in It for You As a Patron? (Other than the aforementioned warm fuzzy feeling?)
Whichever patron level you choose, for which I’m exceedingly grateful, from the $1 Tip Jar to the $30 Old School Patron, you reap certain rewards that connect you to me, to poetry, to a community. Some of these rewards include hot-off-the press writing and news. Or a free subscription to the glamorous The Rule of Three newsletter. There is also a Patron and Learn level, where you get access to a special Patreon-only feed with writing advice and resources. I also encourage those of you with children to try out this level. Poets of all ages can be a part of a postcard exchange, where we exchange original poems on postcards, with followup discussion if we like. For the Old School Patron level, you get a signed book. Once a month, you get a handwritten poem in the mail.

A Little Bit About Me
When I was a boy, I listened to Vincent Price’s CBS Radio Mystery Theater on my transistor radio, despite the admonitions of my wise mother. I ate up books like the Dr. Doolittle series and Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time . In third grade, a teacher introduced us to haiku, and since I loved math, I was very much down with 5-7-5. And thus began my love and subsequent journey into poetry. After high school, I studied writing at Ottawa University and later graduated with a master's from Indiana State. To date, I have written seven books of poetry, and I'm working on my eighth. I post poems on my website, on Facebook and Pinterest, and through my newsletter, The Rule of Three

Thank you so much for your support!

my best,
