patron

$4

per month
My name is Alyssa - a Canadian girl with a passion for words, I write poetry, prose, and speculative fiction, and I can't imagine a life doing anything else.

I have released four titles through traditional publishing houses (Melange Books, Hidden Brook Press, and Thee Hellbox Press), and have self-published two full length books and two short stories through CreateSpace and Kindle. I'm also an active spoken word performer and slam poet, always looking to expand my audience.

Your pledges will fund the necessities of the craft - things like professional editing services for forth-coming titles, and travel costs for performances outside of Kingston. Patrons receive access to my members-only blog, which includes daily poems, rehearsal and performance videos, and early access to new works - as well as my undying appreciation.

Goals
$4 of $50 per month
To fund travel and accommodation costs for three trips - one to Toronto, one to Ottawa, and one to Peterborough - to participate in local slams and build up the slam resume needed to participate in national qualifiers. It's a life goal to perform at the CFSW someday - and these three slam scenes are the first steps to getting there.
