Hello! My name is Keaton St. James. I'm a poet, a Christian, and a gay trans man, and I'm looking for your help. I've been a steady content creator for a while now and I'd love your support to keep pursuing my artistic endeavors.

What do I write about? God, angels, hope, love, the American South, and being a boy who likes boys

Where does your money go? My current list of projects includes:
-The original poems I post on my tumblr multiple times a week
-The dictionary poems, a series of prose poetry vignettes stylized to look like dictionary entries (and their conversion into zines)
-A poetry manuscript (info to come in the future)

Your money will also go towards supporting my transition, meaning therapy, top surgery, and moving out of the household where I am put under serious emotional strain by being forced to stay closeted.

I've found an amazingly supportive writing community on tumblr. I'd love to continue fostering that community, which is why anyone who supports me will get exclusive access to paperback collections a week before word goes out to the general public! And anyone who donates $5 or more will get a poetry-related thank you present.

I'm grateful for any support you can give me. Thank you so much for all that you have done for me in my writing journey so far, and I look forward to giving you more poems in the future!
