The Young Folks is creating a home for entertainment writers and readers

patrons

Thank you for checking out The Young Folks on Patreon! Your interest in TYF is invaluable to us. We would have not made it this far without you.

Times are changing in the digital space, and it’s become increasingly difficult and competitive to turn a profit with content driven websites. We love providing content to our readers for free, but what we don’t love is having a staff who contributes for free. We firmly believe that all writers should be paid for their work, especially young ones in our case. It’s been our goal since the beginning to pay our writers, and we hope that through Patreon, we can gather some funding to support our staff financially.

Funding received through Patreon will go to supporting the website’s expenses and to the editorial staff. We broke our goals into four levels. Our first goal is aimed to cover our basic expenses, like hosting, email, web maintenance and other services we use on monthly basis to deliver content for you. Our second goal will help us pay our team of editors, who work hard to curate and develop articles from our writing staff. The next goal will allow us to pay for freelance event coverage, helping writers out with the burden of travel costs to festivals, conventions and more. Finally, our ultimate goal is to compensate our entire team of writers for their contributions!

With years of growing our staff and readership, we reached many milestones, and we hope to continue to do so, along with your support. Each subscription makes a difference, and we hope that you enjoy the rewards your subscription entitles you. We not only want to use Patreon as a way to raise funds for The Young Folks, but also as a new way to interact with our readers with rewards like watch parties, live access to our podcast recordings and much more!
