I'll keep you in the loop about what I'm working on, how my memoir is coming along, new projects to look out for, etc. I'll also include a reading list of awesome articles or books that I read. You'll get short pieces about media I've consumed or issues I've got feelings on.
This gets you access to my inner work on my memoir - think research notes and journals in my writing process. Patrons get a look at my unfiltered, unedited reactions in the present as I piece together my story.
About Roslyn Talusan
As I've learned to cope with the trauma of being raped, betrayed by institutions, and bullied by my closest friends, writing has been crucial in dealing with it all. Culture critique makes up a vast majority of my freelance writing portfolio. Analyzing how we consume mainstream pop culture in relation to how we treat sexual violence is one of my many forms of activism — the written word and my voice are my favourite weapons against the patriarchy.
After I was unceremoniously and unjustly fired from my stable job in the public service, I've relied on community support to continue my creative work. My writing is necessary if we want to put an end to rape culture and to ensure public institutions are leaders, not opponents, in this fight. If you want an inside look at what it's like for a survivor to stand up against the powers that be, you want to support my work!
