Oh hey there! Thank you for stopping by. 

If you're not familiar with my work, perhaps your first question might be...

"What do you do?"


I write poetry. I perform spoken word. I teach. I mentor. I create art from the land. 

I can write so much more, but I think my video will give you a better sense of my artistic practice... 

"So why did you start a Patreon page?"

There are a few reasons for this.

1. Content: If you sneak a peek at my social media, you'll notice that I love to create colourful, magical and (hopefully) compelling content. While I love to create prompts, images and videos, it takes energy, time, effort and...resources. I believe it is imperative that artists get paid for their work, and yet, I forgot to include myself in the *getting paid* part!

So I thought to myself, "Why not create the content you love creating, but actually have support to continue to do it?" What a REVELATION.

2. Expansion and Branding: To be an artist is to constantly evolve and grow, and in order to do that, we need support, resources and funds. I want to expand my vision to include online workshops to ensure the work I do is accessible to everyone, regardless of location and limitations. I hope to re-brand my website with the support of a professional, so that people can easily access materials and online classes. 

3. Mentorship:  "Be who you needed when you were younger" 

I have benefitted from the support and training of writing mentors and arts professionals, and I believe it is my duty to pass on what I've learned to the next generation of writers. Writers of colour are looking for mentors of colour who understand the importance of keeping their narratives alive. 

This is why I hope to put some of the Patreon funds towards a mentorship for a young writer of colour, so they get the support they need, without having to pay a penny. 

After all, I wouldn't be where I am without my mentors, community and patrons.

Thank you for your support!

Stay inspired,
Sheniz
