Igor Brezhnev is creating poetry
3

patrons

Hello and welcome!

My name is Igor Brezhnev. I create poetry and, eventually, prose. I write about love and heartbreak, death and grief, depression and joy, about the ideas of dignity and home. Once in a while I add a healthy dollop of nonsense to otherwise stark subjects. I believe that through sharing our stories we learn not only to connect with our own unvoiced emotions, but to empathize with emotions of others, and ultimately make the changes that make lives better. I have authored three books so far: the book of possibilities (2012), dearest void (2016) and america is a dry cookie and other love stories (2018).

My most recent book 'america is a dry cookie and other love stories' is now out, after a successful Kickstarter campaign, but there's still a lot of work ahead of me to bring this book to readers. Your patronage will allow me to:

  • tour in more places with the book, 
  • collaborate with other artists merging poetry with other art forms,
  • record high quality audio versions of my poems,
  • create poetry music videos,
  • write new poetry and perhaps even making a dent in my first novel. 

I am still thinking up ways to thank you for your support, so if you have something you'd like to receive as tokens of gratitude for your patronage drop me a line at www.igorbrezhnev.com.

Thanks!

Igor

With your help I'll write more words. I'll share them here. As time progresses I'll figure out what else I can give you for your support.
Goals
3 of 33 patrons
I like goals. Though at the moment any goal on this Patreon seems arbitrary. 33 seems like a good number. 33 is a good-sized crowd. So let's shoot for that. Let's first gather a crowd of thirty three people and see where we go from there. My personal goals right now are:
  • Book more reading dates in September and October in cities in the Pacific Northwest (Portland, Eugene, Astoria, Seattle, Bellingham, Spokane and perhaps a few others)
  • Book reading dates in late October and early November in the cities in California (San Francisco, San Jose, Santa Cruz, Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, San Diego)
  • Book reading dates in November and December in the cities in Southwest (Phoenix, Tucson, Flagstaff, Sedona, Moab and others)
  • Save enough money from sales of 'america is a dry cookie and other love stories' to do a second printing of the book. 
  • Practice performing poetry and get better at that.
  • Record a high quality audio of a few of my poems.
Your support will allow me to work toward these goals.
