Genevra Levinson is creating Poetry
5
patrons
$64
per month
This Patreon project is designed to connect patrons with Genevra's work as a writer and therapist. Become a patron to receive regular doses of time-traveling, beauty-beholding word play. Patrons will receive 1-4 original poems by Genevra per month. Expect a variety of styles, structures, and formats.

Testimonial from a friend:
"I can't read your poetry right now. I know it will make me feel things."

All proceeds support Genevra's living and educational expenses while pursuing her training as a trauma therapist and developing her craft as a writer.

Poet's Manifesto:
I have come to realize that my vocational training as a therapist is integrally woven with my identity as an artist. My writing in particular has developed as a form of beauty-creating, truth-telling, and warfare. Creative modalities are essential to my philosophy of therapy and healing. Creativity is a marker of psychological health, and the mediums of art and writing allow people access and integrate parts of their emotional experience that they may not yet be able to consciously experience or symbolize in plain language. The nature of trauma is to divide the self and keep stories hidden in the dark, laden with shame. Art (writing, dance, music) allows stories to be brought into the light, grieved, and redemptively reclaimed for the beauty and glory of God.

You're maybe kinda into poetry. Or maybe you're just a friend of the poet who sent you this page in an attempt to fund costs of attending grad school. Either way, you'll get one poem per month to enjoy at your leisure. I'm hoping it's your gateway drug.
Fishing in a Wetsuit
$10 or more per month
You're into the poetry (or the poet) enough to admit you like it, but casually play it safe because you're not too sure what consistent exposure to high levels of radioactive word fusion might do to your body and your dream life. Two poems monthly.
Look, Dr. Marvin! I'm Sailing!
$25 or more per month
You are strapped to the mast of my craft and relish the feeling of wind in your nostrils as you are carried over open water. Three short poems monthly.
Jonah in the Frikkin Whale
$50 or more per month
You have allowed yourself to be carried in the belly of kind Mother Whale to depths from whence few return alive. In such a place you will likely hear the voice of god. Perhaps when you emerge your skin will once again be restored to its natural color.


One poem per week. Christmas specials and surprises on other important holidays like my birthday.

Goals
$64 of $250 per month
Genevra will publish a chapbook. You can expect this to be as experimental and genre-blending as the weekly poetry. Each patron will receive a signed copy.
