Who is Elise Pallagi?

I am a slam poet and multi-disciplinary performance artist. My work focuses on the experiences I have had growing up and living as a transgender woman in the Canadian prairie. As a performer, I have been featured at Tonight it’s Poetry, Regina Word Up, The Nutrien Fringe Theatre Festival, The Spring Festival of New Plays, Ness Creek Music Festival, numerous Pride Festivals, and at the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word as a member of the Saskatoon Poetry Slam Team. I have independently produced three chapbooks and my work has been published in several zines and anthologies. I combine raw truth with elements of theatre in the tradition of Vaudeville and Burlesque. My work conveys emotional authenticity in order to touch both the hearts and minds of audiences.

What am I going to do with your money?

Poets are among the lowest paid artists in the world. That being said, I am often approached to do gigs that require me to travel and I am not always paid enough to cover my costs. Your contributions will allow me to attend the events where I am asked to perform, set aside time to produce new content, submit my content to publications and performance venues, allow me to attend artist residencies and workshops, create and maintain a website, rent rehearsal space, and pay for the props and equipment that I need for my performances.

What is in it for you as my patron?

Depending on your contribution level, there are a few different ways I will show my gratitude for your support. All of my patrons will be given exclusive access to updates on the projects that I am currently working on via my Patreon feed. These updates will include raw video of performances in development, drafts of poetry I am working on, and musings on various topics in my community. Higher tier contributors will receive different perks, such as printed versions of my publications, private readings of poetry via streaming video, or other types of custom commissions.

How often can you expect new content from me?

I will provide everyone with blog updates on a monthly basis, at the minimum. I will also try to include at least one piece of video content per month. New poetry comes to me in spurts of inspiration and will be shared as it is created.
