About Eryl Gasper-Dick

Hello Reader,

My name is Eryl Gasper-Dick, and I am an artist and writer living in southwest Scotland. I freelance as a Literature Ambassador (for Wigtown Festival Co. who run the Scottish Book Town); as a creative writing teacher (soon to be teaching two workshops at the brand new Scottish Centre for Children's Literature, Peter Pan Moat Brae); and a content provider, populating people's websites and marketing materials with perfectly honed, clear sentences. When I'm not gadding about supporting writers, lit events, businesses, and students I write fiction, non-fiction, and the odd poem.

I've decided to try Patreon because writing content for businesses is seriously impinging on my 'real' writing – fiction, essays and poetry – so I'd like to give it up and focus on perfecting my art. But I need to pay the bills, like everyone else, and Patreon seems like a way to do that by making art rather than copy pay. Time will tell.

If you become a patron, depending on the 'tier' you select, you will be given access to such things as early drafts, my writing diary (full of the decisions I need to make every day), writing exercises to help you with your own writing, and finished stories. Higher level patrons will also get a Story of the Month, and the really top level patrons will, get free ebooks of stories, poems, and/or essays, depending on what gets finished, at least once a year. The highest level patrons will receive, in the mail, a signed chapbook containing the best of my work over the course of the year if they are still subscribing at that time.

Thank you so much for reading this far, I do hope we can form a delightful reader/writer relationship.

Eryl.
Goals
$0 of $1,000 per month
When I reach $1000 a month I'll be able to travel to research my novel which is currently lying quietly in a drawer waiting for me to finish it. I'll be able to give up copy/content writing for businesses, go and spend some time on a remote Scottish island, and get the book ready for print.
