Hi, I'm Ellie! I'm an ancient historian who looks at the way people in ancient Greece practised their religion. I'm at the tail end of writing a book about how people build relationships with Underworld gods.

On YouTube, my blog, and on Twitter, I chart my journey from an unemployed, newly-minted PhD to (hopefully!) a permanent academic job. I make weekly vlogs, 'how to' videos, videos about early career academia and academic precarity, mental health, and self care.
Tiers
Thank you!
$1 or more per month
You'll get access to Supporter-Only material, including annotated versions of my job applications, updates on my book progress, plus research blogs based on sections of my book and other current research.  Plus a personalised thanks (on Twitter, if you have it).
Handwritten Note!
$3 or more per month
All the Thank-Yous, plus a hand-written note from me and a thanks in my YouTube videos! There will be occasional $3+ post.
Reading! Planning! Cross-Stich!

Everything from the previous tiers, plus I'll thank you in the acknowledgements for either 'Underworld Gods in Early Greek Religion: Death and Reciprocity' or 'Hades' (your choice), and, after 2 month at this level EITHER:


1) I'll read and comment on something of yours (job applications, CVs, essays, blog posts or anything you like!). If you continue to support at this level, I'll read something new every 6 months, and send you a handwritten letter every 3 months.


OR


2) I will make you a custom one-page research  planning bullet journal spread (provided to you as a PDF) based on your  specific needs! After the first 2 months, I will make you a new one-page spread every  3 months (if you'd like a multi-page spread you can accumulate pages).


OR


3) I will make you one custom cross-stitch.


You can also mix-and-match these rewards (that is, I'll read something one time, and make planning spreads the next time you're eligible!)

Get Prosecco Interviewed!
$15 or more per month
Everything from the previous tiers, plus after 3 months at this level I will interview you for the 'Prosecco Interviews' series (it's your choice whether you just keep the video to yourself or are happy for me to post it on my channel!).
Custom Research Planning Session
$15 or more per month
After 3 months at this tier I will sit down with you (in London or Leicester or on Skype) to discuss your bullet journal and research planning needs and help you come up with a planning strategy - including setting 1, 3, and 5 year goals. I will make you 10-15 pages of research planning spreads (either as PDFs or in a notebook of your choice).


Each 3 months I will check in with your progress and help you update spreads, including making new spreads or tweaking spreads you have (again, as PDFs or in your notebook).
