I’m here to entertain, to help people feel and empathize, and to be a catalyst for unusual thoughts. If you decide to become my patron, you should expect to interact with writing crafted to spur emotions and thoughts you would have otherwise missed on. C’mon, that’s got to be worth a buck or two!
I’m here because I need to sharpen my knives and am growing less excited with every passing month about giving my work away for free. Don’t take me wrong, I love kudos as much as the next person, but they suck at paying MFA tuition or covering marketing costs.
As a Polish-raised, American-educated writer, I’m interested in transcultural topics, and my stories have ranged from hyper-realistic contemporary fiction to demon-filled fantasy. My short stories have appeared in literary journals, and I am at work on three novels.
New, patron-only content will be posted at least once a month. It will take the form of short stories, novel serials and excerpts, podcasts, playlists and essays.
Patreon gives discerning patrons access to creative content of interest to them in exchange for a small fee which goes directly to the creator. Money can't buy happiness, but it sure does a great job buying close to everything else an artist or writer needs to keep producing. This includes materials, editing services, graduate work in creative writing, workshops, conferences, book design, research, travel, etc, etc, etc. And, of course, the most valuable commodity: time. My posts include content open to the public to give everyone a taste of what's waiting for my patrons. Become my patron and enjoy all this site has to offer, and feel good about doing it, too!
