Welcome! Thank you for considering becoming a Patron! Patreon works as an ecosystem of mutual support, where artists and communities help each other sustain and thrive. That's a world I want to live in- thank you for thinking about being a co-builder of that world.

My name is Rachel Economy, and I write, work, and speak on and about "re-storyation." (You might be wondering, Rachel, what exactly does that MEAN?) Thanks for asking! "Re-storying" work seeks to re-imagine and re-structure the stories that form our world, so that world can be more just and resilient for people and land. I write poetry and essays, lead workshops and presentations, help run literary and arts publications, and create visual art and sustainable gardens, all of which engage in this re-storying, and support and collaborate with others in re-storying as well. 

I am committed to continuing to do and grow this work. I have seen it impact people and communities first hand. This work doesn't always pay directly, but I am dedicated to offering it. I am excited to collaborate with you via Patreon, to model a story of community-support-based economies together. My work is all about co-imagining and building the world we want to see- thanks for doing that with me here!

Goal reached? Yesss! That means there's food in the kitchen! Fed artists make more art to share with you lovely ones, and also we are less likely to chew on our pens. I'll post a new poem for everyone to see on the feed. Let's have a snack with our tea!
