Peggy Perdue is creating Poetry
1
patron
Poetry to the People
Poetry as Protest


My aim is simple—I want to change the world through words.
I want to spread truth faster than we spread the lies.
I want to make something beautiful that we all can feel.

And yes,
I want to change the world.

Who Am I?

My name is Peggy.

I am...
A poet.
A writer.
A woman.
A wife.
A daughter.
A mother.

So Why Patreon?
For the art and creativity of it. For the patronage. For the community.

I've tried to think up all sorts of ways to make this poetry thing work, and I kept coming back to needing a sustainable model, but I didn't want to waste my time on creating that model, I wanted to create. I wanted to create art and poetry. And Patreon believes in the things I do: That art is needed. It is valuable. And the starving artist is a myth that needs to be destroyed.

I need TIME to do my work. I've tried over and over and over to do something else that paid the bills so that I could be free to do my art, but it just kept cutting into my time. I'd hear a calling to write about this, and just as I was getting past the surface of it, I'd have to take a call for work instead.

I want to break the universe open, and then share those secrets with the world. That's why I need your help and support.

I am a Truth Seeker.
I am Truth.
In whatever form that takes.
It is often poetry.
But almost always
it is in the shape of words.
