Hello lovely people! This is my patreon. There are many like it, but this one is mine. 

I am a good poet with a bad bank account. I'm getting by with a Real Job (plus selling plasma) that pays the bills and puts pizza on the table, but as they always told us in school, it's important to follow your heart. And my heart is saying, "Avery. You are a poet. Go make a patreon so that you can get paid to be a poet. Also, have you considered getting 13 more cats?" 

There's also the fact that my Real Job isn't much. I'm a housekeeper, and while I truly do think the job is a good one, it pays $8.35 an hour. As I said, I am getting by, but I could really use some extra money for savings, important things I've been putting off (like a vacuum cleaner), and possibly college. I'd love to go back to college (to learn even more about poetry!), but college requires funds. 

I'll be putting poems on a semi-regular basis. And for those who pledge, there will also be journal excerpts and such. Because I occasionally write something worthwhile in my journal. 

Remember, every little bit counts! 

Thank you for your consideration. Live long and prosper.

Help me get enough money to hire a visual artist to illustrate a new book of poems entitled Under the Bed. I plan on having an illustration to accompany each poem. Because what's better than poetry? Poetry AND visual art. 
The poetry is all completed, but I still need the visual art. I respect visual artists and my own work too much to offer my artist a crappy pay for all the hard work they would have to put into this book, so I need to make sure I have the funds to pay them well before I can ask them to work for me with a clear conscience. This will allow me to hire a visual artist and complete the book.
