Hey, this is a pretty significant monthly investment. Thank you. 

I'll be in touch and make you something personal and silly at the end of the year. It could be a lil loop I make celebrating You, or I'll write a short essay on the subject of your choosing...let's chat and make something fun together. 

Of course, you'll also get access to my monthly blog posts.

Hi! My name’s Xanthea and I'm from Perth, but currently living in Melbourne. I especially love writing about music, the environment, science and feminism. I’ve written for a bunch of media outlets and presented/produced radio, which you can see some of favourites here. I'm also keen to try my hand at any musical opportunities that come my way, which recently included the sound design and live music for a theatre show called Sleepover Gurlz (I played music inside a closet). 

Why am I here? For the most part, music journalism and creative nonfiction writing pays...pretty much no money. If I want to keep on doing the amount of regular research, interviewing, transcribing and writing, I need a little extra financial assistance. 

Also, I want to experiment more! In the next year I’m keen to play with podcast production, finish writing the ever-growing stems of essays in my draft folder and make feminist blockout poetry out of 50 Shades of Grey in my spare time (so cathartic).

Why are you here? I would so love a little crew of people I could feel accountable to and share my work with. I plan to send out a blog at least once a month detailing what I’m up to, any new work that’s been published or works in progress. 

I am a big believer of free access to ideas and writing. No completed works will be behind a paywall and I’ll still also be pitching to publications as much as I can. If you sign up be a patron, you’ll be let in more on what I'm doing and I’ll be ohsoverygrateful for the support. 

$44 of $50 per month
This amount seems pretty small, but it would mean a great deal to me. You'd be paying for one day of basic living costs (rent, PT, food, maybe a treat?) per month. That's one more day a month I can spend writing producing music. 
I mean, days like that already happen for me, but usually at the expense of me being able to pay rent at the end of the month. This goal is freeing up my time for more writing days and enjoying less fear of financial meltdown because I wanted to write an essay.
