I truly appreciate it! This level gives you the satisfaction of being a supporter of art and unlocks most of the written content.

You are so wonderful! Thank you! At this level, you get all written patron-only content AND access to curated Spotify playlists made to accompany each patron-only post. My stories are born in my head with their own soundtracks; I want you to hear them, too.

The de Medici

See the creative process! At this level, you will gain access to all patron-only content AND will see drafts of work I’m currently writing. Some of them may make it into the final versions of my stories, but some will not, ending up forever on the cutting room floor.

About Karol Łagodzki

Thank you for stopping by! Please stay and look around.

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!

Peace, Karol.

Thank you! Reaching this goal will allow me to pave over a graduate school-shaped hole in my budget, and spend more time focused on writing. More writing = more stories. Everybody wins!
