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.

The next collection of Travel By Haiku will be released in March 2021. I am currently putting the finishing touches on it and you will be able to see it come together first hand. For $3 a month, if you sign up before February 15th, your name will be printed in the pages of this new collection. Contribute $7 a month, and I will mail you signed copy after it is published.

For just $1 a month you will get instant access to all of my writing series Travel By Haiku. Volumes 1 through 5: Still Trippin' Across The States was published in March 2016 and is available for you to read, while future collections are posted here as they come together, with related animations and video poems.

I am also in the process of writing my first novel about my travels around the country, and I'd like to invite you to join me in the process. Rough drafts, journal entries, and other related content that adds to the story will be published here for patrons who donate $5 or more a month. I am also making available previously and soon-to-be published short stories, offering personalized poems, and giving away other products for higher tiers of support. 

Why should you become a patron?
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. In the last couple of months my main source of income as a street poet has come to a grinding halt due to the Coronavirus pandemic. I am hoping that with a strong support network here on Patreon I can weather this storm and work towards a more sustainable creative model, so that when the quarantine has ended I can be able to pick up where I've left off with all of my community projects. It'd be lovely to continue to share these creations with you.

Thank you so much for your support,
Marshall James Kavanaugh.
$98.52 of $100 per month
Publishing a book has its expenses. With this monthly support, I will be able to pay for professional editing, purchase online promotion, and distribute the book for review in regional and national publications.
