About Rae White

Hi there visitors and patrons! My name is Rae White (pronouns: they/them) and I'm a non-binary poet, writer and zinester living in Brisbane, Australia. I'd love you to support me on Patreon, so you can join me on my artistic journey, and help me create weird poetry and rad zines! PLUS money from this Patreon doesn't just support me. This year I'm reviving #EnbyLife zine as an online journal, because I want to provide a space for non-binary and gender diverse creatives to publish their work. Your money will support me, the editor, and pay the wonderful artists who are published on #EnbyLife. Because I believe creatives should be paid for their work.

Why is your Patreon about birds?

When I write, I sit at my window and see many birds outside - this is why my Patreon tiers are all named after Aussie birds! Around midday, my kookaburra mates sit on the clothesline and have a good cackle. Later, the curlews (aka tall spooky ghost birds) will wail at the setting sun and continue to cry into the evening. It's no wonder these bird babes feature so much in my writing. I love working in my Brisbane home and would like to do so as much as possible, with your help!

Who the heck are you again?

I'm Rae! My manuscript ‘Milk Teeth’ won the 2017 Arts Queensland Thomas Shapcott Poetry Prize and was published by University of Queensland Press in September 2018. (Psst, if you pledge $20 or more, you can hear about my writing and editing process of this book and what I'm currently working on in a monthly PDF perzine). I also placed second in the 2017 Overland Judith Wright Poetry Prize for my poem 'what even r u?' (bonus reading: judges’ notes).

My work has been published in many wonderful places, including Capricious, Seizure, Slink Chunk Press and mous. magazine. My poetry has been published in Cordite, Meanjin, Overland, Woolf Pack, and others. I've written zines on many topics: succulents, feminism and Rabbit Island! You can buy my zines at my Etsy shop. (And if you pledge $5 or more, you'll receive a zine discount code!)

You can find out more about me on my website.
$56 of $200 per month
This amount would help me attend more writing and poetry workshops and events, both at home and interstate. And most importantly, it would help me pay #EnbyLife contributors.
