Forest Greenwell is creating Writing + Mixed Media Art

I am Forest, like the trees, not like Gump. Although, not unlike Gump either, I suppose. 

I am a writer, more often a poet and more intermittently a fiction author. I dabble in the realms of articles and essays, as well as photography, digital design, drawing, painting, and pretty much any other creative medium that is currently available. Some might consider this well rounded. I like to think of it as exploratory.

For a living I make coffee; you might be wondering why a writer is making coffee. There are two reasons.

The first is that I thoroughly enjoy coffee, it is an art itself from the taste to the milk.

The second is that I consistently make money making coffee, whereas it is a little scarier to do so with art. 

At the conjecture of this second reason is where I meet you. Because I know you feel that you should be making money doing what you love, and also feel that other people should be doing the same. 

So lets meet half-way. I create content that you find inspiring, thrilling, devastating, challenging, funny, witty, beautiful and comforting. You support this. And then maybe, I can support you too later. Maybe we can conceive this to be a place where I can make coffee because I like making coffee, not because I need to make coffee because I also like making art.

We ain't got much, but we've got enough! Toss a toonie into my metaphorical tip jar of artistry once a month. You'll get a personal thank you, access to all new works, and be the first to know about new publications and projects! You will also receive high quality digital files of any digital works made, to use as your screensaver or just to fill the void in my ego!

You feel like splurging! You're nosey about the creative process! You think my brain is super cool and wanna see it's layers! This is for the person who can spare 5$ and wants to see the rough drafts of published works. This can mean sketches, journal pages, or tidbits of poetry. Plus all the other goodies!

NANOWRIMO = National Novel Writing Month! This month I am going to write at least 1,667 words every day to add a total of 50,000 words to my novel The Smell of Cigarettes! If you want to support this, this tier will give you access to the updates I write everyday in this process.

The drafts are not enough! You need more! You must see *how* it all happens! This tier is for those that want access to live feeds of drawing, rough drafts, and a preview at some (5) journal pages! 
Your Cool Supportive Aunt

You don't have to be my aunt, but that is the vibe. You think I have potential! You want to feed my artists career! You will get all the features above, as well as a physical print of your choosing (photography, digital, poem, etc.) as well as send you a personalized letter in December with my utmost gratitude and thanks.

It is one thing to watch inspiration unfold, and another to prod at it gently; to be a part of the process. In this tier I will write a short story on the topic of your choosing and send you a digital as well as hand written copy of it. You will receive a personalized thank you letter in December. (Plus don't forget all the other cool stuff like live feeds, first to know, journalling works, and more!)

Realistically, you just want me to succeed because there is no real reason to give me 500$ (and that is a great reason + way to support someone you love [or maybe a total stranger you have a lot of faith in])! You will get access to the first signed copies of any new books, a personalized phone call from me once a year to thank you and talk about whatever your heart desires, the rough draft of my first novel (once it is complete, come Dec. 1st 2018), all the fun perks of the other tiers, and a drawing/painting/digital design with a paired written piece on the topic of your choosing!

The creative process is your biggest passion in life and you will do anything to dig into the depths of a young womans mind! This will get you full access to my journal from the year. I will send you a fully digitally rendered copy of my work from my most recent journal. 
Goals
$6 of $500 per month
When I reach 500$ a month, I will start a patron-based project on a topic of the communities choosing and make a piece based on that topic each month.
