Hi. I'm Elinor.

I've joined Patreon because it seems like the simplest, friendliest, and least bullshit way to get what I'm creating out into the world, to the people who want it, and get fairly compensated in the process.

What do I create?

A lot of different things!
  • I perform stories, songs and poems.
  • I make visual art.
  • I create with yarn.
  • I write fiction and non-fiction.
  • I make magic.

Why do I create?

In part, I create because I have to. It is an innate urge within me, that when left unexpressed makes me ill.

But I also create because art, learning and magic are fundamentally about change, and we really need change. My goal is radical change in our culture(s), creating ever-expanding and extending spaces of justice in our societies and economies, in our daily lives, and in our minds and hearts.

Your patronage and support means the world to me, because it enables me to worry less about meeting my basic needs, and to focus more on achieving this goal.

How do I create?

I create always from my perspective as a genderqueer, bisexual, chronically ill, anarchist, feminist Witch.

In my creative process, I feel like I'm a cook at a huge range cooker, with works boiling or sizzling or just warming up on every cooking ring.

Some works are like scrambled eggs: done and ready in a jiffy (well, a few days).

Other works are more like casseroles: they need a long time on a low heat to gently simmer and let their different parts meld together, or to get the seasoning and balance of flavours just right. (These works take months, or sometimes years to complete.)

Quick or slow -- story, song, poem, painting, article, course, ritual, or something else entirely -- the process is the same: the creative urge arrives, works its way through me, makes its medium known to me, and starts cooking.

It's my pleasure to share the results with you. May they nourish you deeply.

If you want to support me, but don't want to or don't have the resources to become a regular patron, you can make a one-off donation here: paypal.me/ElinorPredota

in love and power
