Generous Patron

$1
per creation
Payment is $1 per creation, or $30 per month if we post a story every day. IF YOU WANT TO PAY LESS you can set a monthly limit ($5, $10, etc.) to let us know how many stories a month you would like to support to pledge a lower monthly amount.

After clicking Become a Patron to a per-post creator and choosing your tier, you will be brought to a membership confirmation page. To set your monthly limit, select the I'd like to set a monthly limit option. That will allow you enter the maximum number of creations you'd like to support in a given month. This number indicates how many times you can be billed in a month, not the total monthly amount. You will be able to see all of the stories no matter what you pledge.

This Is Where I Came In

$1
per creation
Did you join our 100-day project late? For those who want to keep supporting us, we are going re-post all the stories one-by-one starting from the first, so you can receive them in your email daily, and continue to donate if you wish. All the stories will continue to be available publicly online as well, this is just another way to enjoy the stories you missed daily, and give more support to Cittadini del Mondo. Separately, when NEW content is added in future, that will go to you here as well as to all the other tiers. If you began part-way through the hundred stories, when our re-posts catch up with where you started, you can switch from this tier to one of the others to receive only new content thereafter.

Payment is $1 per creation, or $30 per month if we post a story every day. IF YOU WANT TO PAY LESS you can set a monthly limit ($5, $10, etc.) to let us know how many stories a month you would like to support to pledge a lower monthly amount.

About Decameron Project

Even while quarantined, isolated, sick, or anxious about COVID-19, we can still tell and share stories! The New Decameron project plans to post a story every day, to share art and aspiration during this crisis and bring our community together. All stories will be visible to everyone, but if you support us with a pledge, the money will go to pay the creators and to support Cittadini del Mondo, a charity running a library and clinic for refugees in Rome, which badly needs extra support during this crisis.

This project was inspired by Boccaccio's Decameron, written shortly after the Black Death hit Florence in 1348, which takes place during that time of plague. In the story, ten young Florentines, seven women and three men retreat into self-isolation in a villa in the hills and pass the time by telling stories, one each per day for ten days, or a hundred stories.

The New Decameron was the idea of Maya Chhabra, and is organized by Maya Chhabra, Jo Walton, and Lauren Schiller. Participants include Daniel Abraham, Mike Allen, Leah Bobet, Pamela Dean, Max Gladstone, Rosemary Kirstein, Naomi Kritzer, Marissa Lingen, Usman Malik, Ada Palmer, Laurie Penny, Ellen Kushner, and many others.

The "Generous Patron" level pledges $1 per story, or $30 a month. But we welcome all contributions and if you want to pay less, you can set a monthly limit ($5, $10, etc.) to let us know how many stories a month you would like to support to pledge a lower monthly amount. You will be able to see all of the stories no matter what you pledge.

After clicking Become a Patron to a per-post creator and choosing your tier, you will be brought to a membership confirmation page. To set your monthly limit, select the I'd like to set a monthly limit option. That will allow you enter the maximum number of creations you'd like to support in a given month. This number indicates how many times you can be billed in a month, not the total monthly amount. Once again, you will be able to see all of the stories no matter what you pledge.
