About

Freelancing as a journalist can often be a precarious calling, and my work is often done by dipping into my own pockets to fund it. Sometimes the articles I write never find a home among the myriad publications that might want them.

In recent months I've decided to convert this Patreon from a place to post my zines to one where I can publish my writing. Hopefully it can help fund my journalistic work and provide a space where I can publish the stories that I want everyone to read (even if the publications aren't interested).

Any support is appreciated, but if you can't support me, that's okay. You'll still have access to everything on this page as I don't believe in putting anything behind a paywall. Donate what you can and I'll always be grateful for your readership.

If you decide to support this page, I want to extend a very heartfelt thank you for helping me find the financial space to do this work. I don't get paid for any of the work I do for Protean Magazine, so this is great help!

Love & Solidarity,
Mel
Goals
21 of 150 patrons
If I hit 150 Patrons a month, I'll be able to spend more time writing and less time worrying about finances.

Maybe I'll make some buttons or stickers to send out to my supporters. Suggestions are welcome!
