Welcome to my Patreon! However you stumbled upon my page, I'm happy to see you. My name is Samantha Puc. I am an essayist and culture critic whose work has been featured on Bustle, The Mary Sue, SheKnows, The Tempest, Rogues Portal, and elsewhere. I mostly write intersectional pop culture analysis with a particular focus on representation of LGBTQ and fat characters in fiction. I'm also the co-creator of Fatventure Mag, an outdoors zine for fat women and non-binary creators who are into being active, but not into toxic weight-loss culture. I live in Rhode Island with my spouse and three cats!

Currently, I'm working on my first book. I'm lucky to be represented by Maria Vicente at P.S. Literary Agency.

In addition to freelance work and the projects listed below, I also keep a full-time job that sucks up 30-40 hours of my time each week. In an effort to subsidize my creative pursuits, publish more work, spend more time on my blog, and cultivate spaces for other writers (where they can be paid!), I've decided to create a Patreon with some exclusive goodies including stickers and an exclusive newsletter. You can read more about those rewards to your right if you're on a browser, or by hitting that rewards tab if you're on your phone!

In 2018, my goal is to focus on the following projects:

  • Fatventure Mag features work by women and non-binary writers, artists, and photographers who are into being active — but not into toxic weight-loss culture. As of June 4, 2018, our first issue is fully funded (and then some) on Kickstarter. Our first issue launches digitally in October, and physical copies will be available in November!
  • IN FULL BLEED is "a collective of journalists here to report pop culture as it should be covered: with full examination of the intersectional elements at play. We’ll be covering books, comics, movies, music, television and more." IN FULL BLEED is currently on hiatus, but will return full-force as soon as we can.
  • My First Book is... not actually titled "My First Book", but the details are being kept under wraps for now! I have a list of upcoming book projects that I'm working on, and your pledge helps me take the time to dig into those projects and write, write, write!

I hope you'll help me pursue these projects (and more) in the upcoming year by pledging! The $1 level gets you basically everything I'll post for patrons only — with the exception of some super exclusive things. 

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you'll stick around!
