I've published a book of poems, written interactive fiction, and started up a weekly poetry podcast.  Now, after a long period of putting out other fires, I'm finally focused on my writing again.  In the works, I have two more poetry manuscripts, a book-in-progress of experimental essays, a PhD dissertation to rework into a critical volume, and a file full of notes for a sequel to one of my games -- and you, yes, you! can be part of moving all these projects along.  This Patreon is basically about helping me live a better life, day to day, because counter to what you may have heard, misery doesn't help anyone make art.  It can give you material, but you still have to get out of it in order to get enough headspace and energy to work.  

When people help me to do even very modest things, like go to a coffee place to write instead of trying to work at home, it makes a huge difference.  Part of it is the knowledge that someone is really, definitely interested in my work; part of it is that relaxing the limits on my life gives me space that I just naturally fill with writing.  Sign on to my Patreon, and I'll keep you up on exactly how your contributions improve my life, and give you ongoing updates about all the work you're helping me to realize.

Tiers
TEA
$2 or more per month 0 patrons
Provide a nice poet with a nice cup of tea. Get access to TEA-level blog posts, which show off the things your donations let me do that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to do, and share interesting bits of information about poems and poets.
COFFEE
$5 or more per month 2 patrons
The price of a latte (in Buffalo). COFFEE-level blog posts add stories about writing – learn highly classified secrets like where my poems come from.
BEERS
$15 or more per month 1 patron
Take me out for a couple beers, and get access to BEERS-level blog posts. Among them, I will guarantee you at least one exclusive audio recording every month, maybe of me reading a poem, maybe singing a song, maybe just talking to my cats.
SUSHI & A SHOW
$35 or more per month 0 patrons
For the price of a pleasant night out, SUSHI-level posts will let you see drafts of any creative projects I work on as they’re written, and even notes for them, if I write notes interesting enough to post.
?????
$50 or more per month 0 patrons
What do people even do with $50 all at once? I have no idea! Maybe they send it to a poet for some reason? If you do that, you’ll get whatever additional content I can think of to thank you. This may just consist of an occasional post that says “Thank you.”
