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

Why I'm on Patreon
I am giving back what has been given to me—the joy of poetry—by so many of my teachers in and out of the classroom. These inspirational folks gave me poetry as well as the love of experience and the desire for deep knowledge of life. My goal is to read, write and share poetry. I generate monthly income from my writing in various ways, and Patreon is one of them, and I'm excited for you to join me on this journey if you wish. I share a poem every Friday on my website and in social media, which is really fun and a challenge to come up with something inspirational every week. I participate in local and regional events, including readings and conferences.

Patreon Benefits 
* 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 to share that joy of poetry! Your patronage has already allowed me to do some fun new stuff, like the free Friday Poems mentioned above and publish my poetry newsletter, The Rule of Three. As well, I've been writing a lot of new poems and I'm finishing up a new book, How to Write Poems. Some of the sweetest rewards have been chatting online with folks about poetry, attending the Artisan Fair, reading poems at Wages Brew Pub, and sending out postcards to my postcard patrons.  

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 poetry and to a community that we're growing here. Some of these rewards include hot-off-the press writing and news. Or a free subscription to the The Rule of Three newsletter. There is also a Patron and Learn level, where we can swap poetry postcards with each other. I encourage folks with kiddos to try out this level though poets of all ages can be a part of the postcard exchange. For the Old School Patron level, you get a signed book, and each month I send you a handwritten poem via snailmail! 

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. My parents did encourage my sister and I to read, and 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. Some amazing teachers in high school, college, and grad school fostered my interests in poetry, encouraged my efforts, and trained me to become a better poet who should always seek to improve one's work. 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 (how did that happen so fast!). I have a diverse set of interests that range from college football to Ozarks culture to ancient world history. 

Thank you so much for your support!

my best,
