Welcome!

I'm Hardit, thank you for stopping by. I write short stories, novels, poetry and also record spoken word poetry.

A little about me...

I've been writing fiction for many years and have gone through and am currently going through the process of finding representation. I did very briefly try and self-publish my work, but it proved too costly to sustain it.

Within the last couple years, I discovered poetry, which became an outlet to share my feelings about my mental health issues of depression and anxiety. After a year of writing poetry, I realised I had enough to publish a collection and did so in July 2016, it's called Fading Footsteps. Again it was very costly, but I decided putting a book out there, that would raise awareness for mental health, was too important to me.

Why I joined Patreon?

I had heard of Patreon for a while but I never connected the dots that this service, which helps creators, could help me too. Once finally figuring it out lol, I thought it was a perfect match for me to get some financial support for my creativity, especially since I'm not able to work right now.

What I'm working on?

The topics and themes I'm drawn to write about often touches upon social issues and this is what inspires me - to help others.

I already write and publish poetry on my instagram account (@_harditsingh) and Facebook page and I would like to release another collection of poetry in the future. I'm currently working on releasing my first zine called 'The Self' which will be a collection of haikus.

I'm also in the midst of editing a novel that I hope I can begin to submit to agents soon. A previous novel is already being submitted in the hope of finding a literary agent. I also have many completed short stories that I hope to release individually or as a collection and a screenplay, written several years ago, which needs a final edit before it can be sent off in the hopes to be bought. 

How will your support help?

My creativity is my only way of supporting myself right now. Your kind pledges will help me as I put in the many hours to write and edit my works of fiction, write and publish my poetry, including zines and future collections.

It can take me days sometimes weeks to write, record and produce my spoken word poetry that are uploaded to my YouTube channel. You will be supporting me as I continue to build my channel.

With each of your pledges, I can concentrate on helping myself the only way I know how, through my creative outlets. Your contributions will also give me creative freedom and I won't have to worry about being restricted :)

You'll be able to see my writing goals on the left for what I'm currently focusing on, and I will try and keep you all updated as often as I can.

I'm still of course figuring this site out, but I already want to say a big thank you for checking out my page regardless of if you become a Patron or not. I'm just happy to be part of a new creative support community.

Peace & Love,

One of my goals is to get my poetry out there for people to read by creating zines and I will need some help with printing costs. I plan to sell my zine on my online Etsy shop and use your pledges to include a free extra copy with each sale, giving customers a chance to gift a copy to a friend or carry out a random act of kindness in distributing it. I also am going to randomly distribute copies myself in libraries, cafes, & perhaps charity shops - if you have ideas of other places let me know!
