Seumas Macdonald is a passionate advocate for living language approaches to all languages - including classical and historical ones! In particular, he loves helping people realise that Ancient Greek can be spoken and enjoyed as a language like any other, not merely a collection of autopsy tools in the grammar textbook. 

He's busy making podcasts and videos in and about ancient Greek, both Classical and Koine, and would love you to join him on this adventure, to begin to speak ancient Greek with a modern twist.

He's also trying to support himself doing academic research, outside academia. If that's something you'd like to get behind, there's a tier just for you!
Tiers
σπουδασταί
$2 or more per month
Fans of Greek, unite!
Patrones academicae
$10 or more per month

This tier is specifically for those who want to actively support me in setting time aside to write and research academically. Despite a PhD and considerable teaching, none of my current work supports research, and this is an avenue for you to directly patronise this work, primarily in patristics.


Patrons in this tier will gain access to my draft papers and be kept updated on research work as it develops.

παρακλητοὶ τοῦ Ἑλληνιστὶ μαθεῖν
$10 or more per month

This tier is for those who want to actively support my efforts to develop more materials for spoken Ancient Greek, including podcasts, videos, and developing the Lingua Graeca per se Illustrata materials.


Patrons at this level will be kept updated monthly on those endeavours, and I will apportion some of my time to these activities based, in part, on the level of support here.


 

You get: 

* A Personal thank-you message

* Voting on future podcast topics

* To individually request a future podcast topic (subject to discussion)

* A shout-out on an appropriate social-media platform
