About Taylor Dobbs

Hello! I'm Taylor Dobbs. I'm a writer at heart, but I left full-time journalism in 2017 in order to restore work-life balance and take a break from intensive exposure to the increasingly toxic state of politics.

The longer I spend without publishing anything, the more it seems to come to me - chunks of sentences or paragraphs will float into my head in the car on a long drive, or in the middle of a movie.

You may be a friend or family member, or someone who knows of my work as a journalist. Whoever you are, I'm asking for you to support me in getting those ideas written down. As simple as that is in concept, the realities of daily life and non-writing work make it difficult to sit down with a clear head and time to think. Your support will relieve (some of) those pressures and, more importantly, will remind me that it's worth writing again.

What I offer: Gratitude, truly, for your willingness to support my writing with your money, and of course the writing itself. That will be posted on my blog and probably on Instagram too.

What I don't offer: Straight-up journalism; this is not an attempt to crowd-fund a job I once left, and I look forward to the opportunity to share some of my own thoughts and experiences, and to say exactly what's on my mind instead of just facts I can prove. There might be journalistic stuff, there might be poems. I promise only to write, and to share it. (Supporting my work doesn't give you any exclusive content. I don't like excluding.)
