Hi,

I'm S.T. Cartledge. I'm the author of the Orphanarium, Girl in the Glass Planet, Kaiju Canyon, Day of the Milkman, Beautiful Madness (poetry), amongst others. I'm a bizarro author and poet based in Perth, Western Australia.

I've started this patreon because I've got nothing to lose from it and so much to gain. The primary gain would be in the capacity to dig right into my DIY poetry roots and create some truly unique work that will take you to strange and magical places far beyond the realm of your own imaginations.

Writing, to me, is a place to strip away all generic and real-world concepts and to capture something beautiful using words alone. I occasionally perform poetry at various local spoken word events, and I often take the poems I perform and print them out into what I would call "one shot" poems. A poem which fits on 2-3 A6 pages (a single folded A5 piece of paper) with a simple black-and-white cover.

With funding support through patreon from my fans both old and new, I would be able to share my poems and fiction with you in a variety of formats, in plain text, digital and print one shots, digital and print chapbooks, maybe even video and/or audio, and if I get enough support, professionally published chapbooks and collections.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you decide to support me in my crazy wild poetic adventures. I promise not to disappoint!

My focus is on digital content at this point in time. What value that takes is up to you. I will charge only for completed projects - chapbooks or novellas, and deliver them to you here before anyone else, as well as providing insight into my progress and updates, works in progress, that sort of thing.

If you think my poetry chapbooks and bizarro fiction novellas are worth more than a buck a piece, thank you for the contribution. I will roll out special 'thank you's to you in my published works and I will endeavour to find bonus content/deals to throw your way.

If you think my work is worth more than $1-$3 each I thank you deeply and will be more than happy to hear what you would like to see more of in my work. I will also be happy to give tips on my writing process as it may suit your needs, whether it be in the draft/concept stage to finding/pitching to publishers, or going the DIY route with how to format/design your own project.
Goals
$16 of $100 per creation
$100 a month would be a massive step in the right direction. It would help me to focus on putting out more poetry and to distribute the poetry to more people. It would also put me dangerously close to the realm of possibility where self-publishing professional-looking chapbooks is a legitimate and accessible (affordable) option.
