WHO I AM

Hi! My name is Mimi Mondal. I'm a writer from Calcutta, India who writes science fiction and fantasy stories, and nonfiction articles on social and cultural subjects. In 2018, I won a Locus Award and was nominated for a Hugo Award, a British Fantasy Award and a William Atheling Jr. Award for my book Luminescent Threads: Connections to Octavia E. Butler, co-edited with Alexandra Pierce and published by Twelfth Planet Press. 

My latest fiction is His Footsteps, Through Darkness and Light, published by Tor.com.

WHY I HAVE THIS PATREON

I occasionally write a nonfiction article (you can find all of them here), but it's long and unsteady work to pitch ideas to different publications, and the payment from multiple freelance venues is irregular at best. I'm trying to get all my nonfiction writing in a place, which is what you get for the basic $1 tier. I will only start writing this column once the Patreon starts earning $100 a month, which is about what I get for writing each of these articles separately.

For $2 you get the column, and also a more personal newsletter. 

For $5 you get the column, the newsletter, at the end of the year, I will send you a PDF of all my nonfiction writing (including anything published outside the Patreon!) put together. 

For the $10 tier, you get the column, the newsletter, the year-end PDF as well as a birthday card from me once a year! (You have only one birthday a year, right?) 




Tiers
A column
$1 or more per month

If my Patreon reaches $100, I'll write a monthly column about stories, culture, politics, publishing, living between India and the US, and so on.

A newsletter!
$2 or more per month

If you picked this tier I'll assume you care about me! So along with the column (which only activates at $100), you'll get updates on what I've been doing, thinking, new adventures and so on.

Everything together!!!
$5 or more per month

For $5 a month you get a column, a newsletter AND at the end of the year, a PDF of all my nonfiction writing together. I may try to illustrate it! How cool is that?

Birthday card!!!
$10 or more per month

You get a birthday card made by me, in the post, anywhere in the world. Limiting this tier so far to 20 to see how it goes.

Oh, and you also get everything from the previous tiers!

Life, The Universe and Everything
$42 or more per month

Honestly a joke tier, because I have no idea why anyone would want to give me $42 every month. 


HOWEVER, if you *do* want to give me $42, you get everything from the above tiers, and probably catch up in person for a meal whenever you are in New York or I am at the place where you live. Not being a rapist or serial killer will be appreciated. I am mostly interested in knowing who you are at all. Wow. 

Goals
100% complete
I'm hoping to earn $100 on the Patreon to start writing a monthly column, which is about how much I would get from a regular publication!
