My name is Meg Elison. I write science fiction and horror and essays and satire and basically I never stop. I also teach creative writing. I won the Philip K. Dick award in 2014. Book royalties pay my rent. I am a full-time writer living in Oakland.

I write for free on my blog, my newsletter, and my Twitter. Many of my stories and essays are also available online for free, and you may have already read some of them! That might be why you're here!

I have a lot of stories that I'd like to share with people. I have new projects to talk about, and hard-won advice about writing and the business of writing. For a few bucks, you can have some of that. For more bucks, you can have some of my personalized attention on your own project.
Tiers
Story Midwives
$1 or more per month
Everyone who coughs up a dollar gets a short story every month, text and audio. 
Road to Nowhere
$3 or more per month
You get the story of the month, plus one solid piece of writing advice from my own experience. I don't give 'write what you know' garbage barge advice. This will be practical, tested, and something you haven't heard a million times.

You get the story of the month, the writing advice of the month, plus I will send you a handwritten letter of encouragement and beauty on fancy stationery with a wax seal. 
Etta's Map
$50 or more per month
I will critique your short story or excerpt (6k words max) or your query letter. My critique will be thorough and aimed at both making your work better and helping you to become a better writer.
