About

Hi! I'm Talia, though some call me Jesmalestiel. I use they them/pronouns and I'm a queer BIPOC writer, editor, and activist focused on doing some good in the world through my writing. I created this Patreon because I love writing, I love creating new worlds, I love putting pen to paper, I love reading books and sharing my thoughts. I love going though another person's novel and giving them tips and suggesting tricks. But I also know that these things I love are work. They take time. And so I am asking for support from patrons because I know that time has worth.

Free content, open to the world wide web: Every Wednesday (and some Fridays) I post a book review or essay to my personal website Word-for-Sense and Other Stories. I review nonfiction, fiction, and poetry across genres, and my articles center fandom, philosophy, literature & social justice. I also write fanfiction for Harry Potter, Doctor Who, and Good Omens. which can be found at Jesmalestiel Tells Tales.

Exclusive to patrons: Every other Sunday I will be posting either a poem, a translation I am working on, or a prose work, most likely original fiction, though potentially creative nonfiction. Sometimes these will be stories told in parts, such as The Innkeeper, and sometimes they complete are Flash Fiction, such as The Last Train. Patrons also receive a monthly newsletter and periodic updates. Patrons at higher tiers also receive additional benefits, as per their descriptions.

I am open to receiving commissions for writing, editing, and translating from Spanish to English. Thank you for your support!
Goals
3 of 50 patrons
When I reach 50 patrons I will start donating 15% of my revenue to charitable organizations. Each month I will poll my patrons and ask them to choose from a pool of potential charities of my own cultivation.
