J.R.E. Thornis creating mythology inspired works
Select a membership level
I am a British freelance writer living in the Wendland of Lower Saxony, Germany. I write fiction which is steeped in European mythology. I'm also a published poet and I hope my debut speculative fiction novel No Mór The Glen, a work of speculative fiction and a new myth for our time. I am also working on a collection of short stories, which are each inspired by the ancient Ogham writing system.
"An outlandish energy source is found ’neath a Welsh lake,
a local girl goes missing, and a foundling Scotsman is coming into his own."
"P.D. James meets ancient mythology."
Before working as a freelance writer I worked as a charity fundraiser for intentional communities in the UK. My fundraising helped to facilitate their survival, and their own patrons to find expression. Now, I have decided to appeal for patrons of my own.
Arts and literature bring dynamism and colour into any culture. Words are powerful and stories are the accompaniment to our being human. Without them, society loses its spark. Our common mythos provide us with the instructions and commentary of our lives - they are our fables, morality tales and our bedtime or London tube treats. A diverse wordscape is as good a litmus test for a healthy and democratic society as any other.
However the economic climate for the arts, and for new writers, is very poor at the moment. New voices are struggling to secure their platform, meaning our bookstores are becoming more and more saturated. This is a worrying situation, for there are few things that stimulate and protect liberal society better than having a diverse artistic and literary culture to draw from.
Do you want to protect our mythos inheritances?
I hope my content will help you to take an artistic journey with me. My uploads will follow the first few pledges to this project.
I'll be providing my patrons with upcoming videos, livestreams, guested podcasts, novel snippets, poetry, and explorations of the existing European mythos both ancient and modern. They will receive exclusive insights into my novel, my writing process and, finally, get their hands on signed copies of the finished product!
Meanwhile we'll be journeying through ancient history and contemporary art, detouring through geography, philosophy, and maybe even theosophy as we go along the way!
Please help me to reach 400 patrons by sharing this project with your friends and family.
Let us journey on...
