About Sarah Smallwood

Welcome to my Patreon page! You are pretty.

What's all this, please? I'm Sarah Smallwood, a writer and thing-maker who takes an interest in pretty much everything. I spend days writing for The Man (/ equivalent gender-neutral capitalist overlord) and nights getting my fingers into all sorts of pies. A friend of mine pushed me to offer a way to pay me for the things I do for fun, and after I laughed for two weeks I created this space here.

What can I expect if I support you? It's my goal to share as much as I can with you, whether it be essays, fiction, handy tips, craft talk, money-saving tricks, home hacks, and whatever problem crosses my path on a particular day. Common topics that pop up regularly include:

  • Writing
  • Old Home Restoration
  • Knitting
  • Crafting
  • DIY
  • Gardening
  • Travel
  • Mental Health
  • Politics
  • Things My Dog Does

How can I tell if I like you before I support you? Posts on the first Monday and Friday are unlocked for all readers. If you scroll back a few months and giggle, please consider supporting my work here on Patreon to get posts every Monday (or every Monday and Friday, your choice). You can pledge any amount you want per month, and cancel or change your pledge at any time. I sincerely appreciate any amount you can offer—even $1/month adds up!

What does my support get me? Firstly, a warm, fuzzy feeling. You are helping an independent artist do the thing she loves most, and that's pretty cool of you. You may also have dropped a few coins in the karma bank, which can come back to you when you least expect it. Finally, if you join one of the rewards tiers, you will get occasional dividends for being a dope human. 

What is the money used for? Coffee and dog food. If we reach the point where both are fully-funded, I'll quit my job.

Are there any rules? This page is not just an opportunity for you to support me financially, it's a community of people. I encourage positive comments, emails, suggestions and interactions, as long as they are respectful and germane to the dialogue. That said, this is a safe space and no assholery will be permitted. You want to use slurs or deny the Holocaust, take your money and GTFO.

What if I want to support you, but I'm poor? I've been there. Fortunately, help comes from many places: you can share a link to my page with friends, recommend me to others, or shoot me an email with suggestions on what you want to see here. I want you to keep coming back, whether you're "official" or not.
