Felilum & bennmush! Welcome to the Patreon home of the Academy of Omniosophical Arts & Sciences. I’m Joy, your Aetherean guide. If any of what I’m saying has you scratching your head, I’m betting you’re new to the ways of the omniverse. Not to worry, you’re sure to catch up quickly. The short version is if you’re a patron of this page, you’re contributing to the creation of a collaborative community of authors and artists, musicians and cosplayers, all spreading their creative wings through Omni’s activities and events. So far, we’ve published 2 anthologies with several more in the hopper as well as a series of Omni Tales. Beginning January 2019, we’ll offer monthly themed Omni Surprise Parcels and online courses, and host 4 5th Saturday Super Secret Sit & Sip Soirees … Then from 2020 through 2024 we’ll publish an Omni story each month. As you can see, there’s lots going on, and we couldn’t do it without you. We’re so excited to partner with you to make creative dreams come true.

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 I fit in?
As part of our inner circle, you'll be privy to tons of stuff mere mortals can only dream of (*wink*). Depending on your level, you'll get patrons-only content, can take online classes for free, be thanked in books, snag some swag, and come to Omni-fest for free! (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. The funds will go to our nonprofit, if that helps come tax time. xo)

What sort of content will you be 'creating'?
In addition to live events, we’ll create books and videos that feature our artists, give updates on the festival, announce collaborative projects … That sort of thing.

For now, take a gander at the tiered rewards in the sidebar to see if anything catches your fancy. And for information on our arts festival in the planning, visit omni-fest.org .

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