About Marshall James Kavanaugh

Hi and welcome to Patreon, a website where you can become a patron to my creative projects! Your contributions ensure that I not only have more time to devote to my own writing, but it will give me further financial stability to use in empowering other poets and artists around the country, taking them on tour, setting up regional events, and publishing their chapbooks to reach a wider audience.

What do you get in return for your support?
For your support, I am offering patrons a chance to see the behind the scenes of my writing through access to previously published collections as well as rough drafts of different projects I am currently working on. For higher tiers, I am also making available previously and soon-to-be published short stories, offering personalized poems, and giving away other products like care packages with signed copies of previously published books.

I am currently writing a forthcoming novel about my first road trip across the country. Themed from the perspective of a modern day beatnik, the novel ends up centering in an expanding narrative about environmental justice, civil rights, and individual growth.

For just $1 a month you will get to read journal entries and process related updates about writing a novel as well as instant access to all of my writing series Travel By HaikuFor $5 a month, you will be able to read new chapters from this forthcoming novel, as well as have instant access to all of my previously published writing. 

Why should you become a patron?
Through 2020-2021, my patrons here contributed to a successful release of my book, Travel By Haiku, Volumes 6-10: Far Out On The Roads With Friends. Without their help, I would not have been able to cover the cost of printing, promoting, and touring this collection, especially during a pandemic. I was even able to put together several online book launches featuring over 50 other performers from around the country and gain several dozen book reviews in various journals to expand the readership for this collection worldwide.

For several years now I have been taking other writers on tour, publishing their work, and connecting communities through poetry around the country. You might have seen me on tour with the Poets For Peace, snatched a chapbook I published with A Freedom Books, or requested a poem from me on the street when I was set up as a Dream Poet For Hire. I am hoping that with a strong support network here on Patreon I can continue to create and have the stability to weather the unexpected (aka future lockdowns as a result of the pandemic).

In addition, you will become a key member of my personal writing community.

Thank you so much for your support,
Marshall James Kavanaugh.
