About Philippa Ballantine

Trying something different with my Patreon, something I've been contemplating for awhile.
I'm starting to do audio recordings of classic literature, with a dash of poetry thrown in now and then too.

I've been a podcaster for over ten years, but before that I was trained in Speech and Drama. You might have heard me read for Podcastle and Apex. I also studied English Literature at university. I read a lot of Victorian literature, and fell in love with the Romantic Poets. (My adoration of Keats has only grown over the years)

In these strange, uncertain times, we all need a little soothing, and more than a little comfort. So I want to share my love of these authors with you. My plan is to keep this patreon simple, with only two tiers. I'll be polling you to find out what I should be reading, and I plan on starting in April.

19% complete
I will start turning the monthly shorts into audio fiction available to you from the $3 tier up!
