Hello Lovely People!! My name is Nathaniel for those of you that don't know me. If you're reading this either you heard about me from somewhere or you like poetry and stumbled here on accident. Either way, Welcome! Please take a look around. I am a writer of all things but mostly I work on poetry. This is unfortunately not a big money maker. This is why you have found my wonderful Patreon. If you feel interested I would love your help.

I am currently a student in Colorado where I am finishing my Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing. Writing is currently my only job. I have an internship with OUTFRONT Magazine which is amazing but I work for college credit. I go to school full time which means marketing my writing falls to the wayside. That's where you guys come in. Together we can not only get my poetry to readers who want it (you) but we can also help a struggling author (me) pay his bills! So, what do you say? Shall we create something together?

Please don't forget that this is a per-poem Patreon! If I get a big enough following I can change it to monthly however until such a time you can set a monthly limit for your payments. I will be aiming for at least two poems a month, at most four. Do not let my productivity put you in the hole, though! I will still love you and you will still get your much deserved rewards.

Help me to survive being a poet so my words can help you survive the harder stuff, like global warming (those poor penguins). Thank you! Love you all!

Thank you so much for supporting me and my writing. I love each and every one of you.
At this tier you get access to the Patron only feed where I will announce things like readings, performances, book sales, new merchandise and some random snippets from my brain. This is also where each poem, short story, and my photos will appear. I will also write a thank you haiku specifically to you!
