Hello sparkles! 

I'm Inke and I'm a queer writer, poet, spoken word artist, journalist, activist,... You can pick a label. I don't really care about them anyways. My pronouns are they/them and I'm based in Belgium. I'm currently working on the manuscript of my very first poetry book. I try to spill my words on as many stages as possible, mainly through poetry slams. Activist is my middle name and as a journalist I mostly write about gender en queer related topics. 

I'm going to be honest with you. I opened a Patreon page because the life of a queer word artist ain't easy. I mean, it is the best job there is, trust me. But 80% of what I do is unpaid work. I still put my heart into it but money is running out. So I was trying to find a creative solution that would still allow me to continue doing what I love most, which is writing, performing and, no matter how cheesy it sounds, trying to make this world a better place. Eventually it brought me here.

I was hesitant about just asking people for money. It didn't feel right at first. But then I started realising that I don't just ask for money, I also give a lot in return. I pour my soul into what I do. And right here, I want to create a community in which people can feel comfortable and where I can share my words with you. Following my heart is basically what I'm doing. And I really hope you enjoy it here. I really do. 

Feel free to have a look at the pledge section on the right side of my profile where I list everything that I can share with you on this platform, like poems, podcasts and sappy handwritten letters. You can support me by becoming a patreon and then you can choose whichever pledge seems best for you!

I can't wait to welcome all of you here on my Patreon page! 😘

Love,
Inke

Goals
$81 of $100 per month
Honestly, I've always dreamt about being a word artist. Being able to pay my rent, food, bills and other essentials by doing what I love, would be pretty amazing, right? Now, I won't be able to do that with 100 dollars but it will get me a looooooong way. I'll be able to breathe a bit more. If I hit this goal, I will start doing Q&A videos exclusively for all my patrons + I will start my very own Youtube channel!
