About

Warning, the following was written by a scribe with a tongue-in-cheek affliction, and thus all that you read should be treated with the same gravity as an article published in The Onion (i.e. take it with heaping servings of salt ... A little curry wouldn't hurt either.)

UPDATED 28 MAY 2020
"Omni offers an interactive approach to education, entertainment, and enrichment. Programs are designed to enable curious and imaginative souls to realize their creative dreams through fantastical theme events, artistic opportunities, and collaborative projects that transform ordinary existence into magical reality." Dynamic Dimensions magazine

Felilum and bennmush! I'm Joy, the Ocademy's plenipotentiary (ambassador) in your realm. I have been working with Omni and its local all-female adjunct Siren School for a decade in preparation of the Ocademy's official coming out party on 21 March 2020 at a sold-out IN YOUR ELEMENT tea. Then the world shut down. Some claim it is the doing of the XQ renegades who have been wreaking havoc across the dimensions. (Those who are up to date on Peyton Drake's Omni Tale are intimately familiar with the dangers XQ poses.)

For the foreseeable future, the bulk of our activities will center on:
  • Theme events (primarily teas through our Tea Travellers Societea) when we are able to do offer them again in keeping with prevailing health protocols. Patrons receive advance notice and early access to reservations.
  • Artistic opportunities - from seeing a short piece published in one of our anthologies to doing voiceovers and newscasts as part of our YouTube shows, and eventually doing stage work for those who are truly intrepid.
  • Ocademy-exclusive wares - expect everything from a Travelling Tea EtiKit to Element of Surprise Parcels, SireniTea Samplers, novella-themed LiteraTea packages and more. Patrons receive advance notice and early access to merchandise. 
  • Books! - A new installment of Peyton Drake's 49-novella Omni Tale will come out nearly monthly beginning June 2020 through January 2025. We will also offer a smattering of other ditties for your reading pleasure, including our community-contributed anthologies, and all manner of silly tomes.
  • We host a variety of active hubs on social media, ranging from groups with just a handful of folk to pages with more than 10K fans. 

So how does this work?

For those who are new to Patreon, it’s an arts crowd-funding system that builds community and enriching relationships. Like a fine wine, the patron experience improves as it ripens, giving patrons and creators opportunities to grow together as a community. If you want to get involved but aren’t sure which tier’s right for you, feel free to give one a test drive. They’re based on a monthly contribution, and you can change or discontinue your pledge level at any time.

Where do you fit in?
As part of our inner circle, you'll be privy to tons of stuff mere mortals can only dream of (*wink*). At a time when social media users are cursing their chosen platform's "algorithm," Patreon sends all patrons applicable posts via email, ensuring patrons never miss a post or announcement because of 'newsfeed' issues

(Pesky housekeeping note: You will be charged at the time you pledge. Thereafter, you will be charged at the beginning of each month. Thus, if you pledge on the 25th of the month, you'll be charged at that time as well as a week later when the first of the month rolls around ... Just letting you now so you don't freak out when the time comes. xo)

What sort of content will this page offer?
Depending on your tier, you'll get patrons-only content, can take online classes for free, be thanked in books, snag shwag, receive discounts on merchandise and in-person events … That sort of thing.

For now, take a gander at the tiered rewards in the sidebar to see what works best for you. 

P.S. For those looking for a tax write-off, visit our 501(c)(3) arts nonprofit Whimsicalidocious,

Thank you for your interest in Omni — where you're always in your element.


Goals
10% complete
Once we reach 100 patrons we can begin working toward a brick & mortar home base whence we can offer tea events, classes, special interest activities and all manner of wondrous activities to showcase talented artists and teachers.
