I'm the Literature Lady!  I write about badass women's history. I take boring research and turn it into entertaining podcast episodes and threads on Twitter.  

On The Literature Lady Podcast, I dig into the stories your teachers never told you about, the stories of women in all their raw, dynamic, adventurous, heroic, and tragic glory. Not only am I drumming up those lost tales of women that have been buried in the dusty old archives all over the world, but I am also retelling tales that previously have been told but I keep in the bawdiness, complexity, controversy, and horror. With an exciting array of knowledgeable and equally snarky guests, this podcast hilariously picks apart the past so that we might learn more about our present and future. 

By supporting me on Patreon, you are helping me get access to archives such as Early English Books Online so I can continue to drum up these amazing stories of women. You are also helping me make ends meet as an adjunct.  By supporting the Literature Lady, you support the quest to bring badass women's history to the world!  Thank you so much for helping me make my dream to make history fun!

Courtly Compliments and Personal Letters

In addition to the benefits of the first tier, I will send you a personal letter in the mail written in a 17th century courtly style thanking you for your largesse.  In beautiful calligraphy and ink, I will write you a letter on heavy parchment paper and seal it with a wax seal. (As these are made by hand and uniquely composed just for you, please allow 3 to 6 weeks for delivery.)

Courtly Compliments, Personal Letters, and Portraits

In addition to all the benefits of the first two tiers, I will also send you a printed portrait miniature of a randomly selected early modern woman that has been featured on the podcast. Each portrait is fitted behind class and this gift contains a brief biography of who the subject is and why she was so badass. Just let me know in a note if you would like the portrait as a magnet or pendant.  (As these are made by hand, please allow 3 to 6 weeks for delivery.)

Courtly Compliments, Personal Letters, Portraits, and Podcast Picks


On top of getting all the benefits of the first three tiers, we will collaborate on a mini podcast episode where you will get to select from a list of women and/or topics!  

Goals
35% complete
If we reach this goal, I will create a bonus episode on the versatile couplet in Renaissance poetry, both as a clever writing device but also as a devious way lady poets got even with their enemies.  I will thank my patrons by name on the episode, and dedicate some of the best couplets of the period to them.
