About The Paranormal Scholar

The Paranormal Scholar cordially invites both believers and sceptics to join the Quill and Ink Society in search of the paranormal...
WHO ARE WE?

We're Laura and Erik Rowton, the husband and wife team behind The Paranormal Scholar, a project dedicated the objective exploration of anomalous phenomena. We have both had a life-long interest in everything strange and spooky, but have always been left wanting more. Frustrated by unreliable evidence and in the worst case hoaxes, we set out to research the paranormal for ourselves. That's not to say we're perfect! No - only that we aim to bring a fresh approach and a critical eye to the paranormal, educating and fascinating our audience, without smothering the fun of discovery.

Above all, we love presenting our research on the paranormal, whether this be in the form of documentaries, short form videos, website articles, or our growing paranormal artefact project.

With your help, we hope to create the best possible content we can.

WHAT IS PATREON?

Patreon is a crowdfunding platform which helps independent creators. It's a way to support the creation of regular content via monthly financial pledges. By joining our Quill and Ink Society you will gain access to exclusive member benefits. We have different membership levels to choose from, meaning you decide how much you wish to spend each month, with the ability to cancel anytime.

Ultimately, membership is a way to say, "I am happy you make content. I want, and am able, to support you - please don't stop!"

HOW CAN PATREON HELP?

We devote all our time to The Paranormal Scholar. By becoming our patron you will help alleviate the stress of the inconsistencies of YouTube revenue (think of their ever more stringent "advertiser friendly" policies and that time our entire YouTube channel was arbitrarily demonetised in June 2019), as well as people using adblockers. Your support will allow us to have the stability of an income beyond YouTube's ad revenue system. This will enable us to afford new equipment and research resources, as well as help with the cost of travel to paranormal locations.

With our patrons' support, we were able to produce on our first, full-feature documentary, In Search of the Dead. Patreon memberships helped to subsidise the cost of travel, research resources, equipment, and post-production.

We hope to achieve greater independence so that we can continue doing what we love and provide richer content for you.

WHICH MEMBERSHIP TIER SHOULD I SUBSCRIBE TO?

There is no one size fits all membership tier. Each and every person who chooses to support us - regardless of how much they give - is greatly appreciated. Please do not put yourself in financial jeopardy for us - only spend what you can afford. You will be charged when you first sign up and then on the 1st of every month going forward. As this is a monthly subscription, you can stop at any time.

If you are unable to join The Quill and Ink Society, it doesn't make us any less grateful for your support. Thank you for even considering it!

FAQs

Q: When will I recieve my membership badge?

A: Regardless of membership tier, you will receive your very own Quill and Ink Society membership badge (with signed Certificate of Authenticity) once you reach $50 in accumulated membership pledges. Higher tier members will therefore receive their badges sooner, with lower members working towards the threshold with each pledge. For example, a new $5 Fellow member will receive their badge after ten pledges, and a new $50 Secret Master member will receive their badge straight away.

We try try to prepare and ship badges as soon as possible, however shipment times may vary depending upon scheduling, the size of our workload, and the manufacturing process. If there is a delay, we kindly ask for your patience: membership badges are our way of acknowledging and saying thank you for your long term support, and so as long as you continue being a member, you will receive a badge.
