Who am I?

My name is David Jones and I'm a writer. You might know me from instagram (@storydj) where I post lots of poetry and short stories.  My most famous book is Love And Space Dust, but in total I've published five collections of poetry and a novella. My poetry has been shared by celebrities including Cara Delevigne, Britney Spears, Khloe Kardashian and Camilla Cabello. I have around 500,000 followers across social media, and the most amazing part of this is hearing that my writing has touched someone, given them something to identify with. That's one of the best feelings in the world. I'm currently working on more poetry collections, a short story series and a novel, all of which will be released in due course.

What am I doing Patreon!?

This is about rewarding my readers and my top fans. I post a lot of writing on social media, but I want to reward people who sponsor me on Patreon with exclusive monthly rewards. I see this as a type of subscriber service, and I want to send as much cool stuff to my followers as possible! It's a way of saying thanks!!

Anyone who writes is a writer. Anyone who wants their life's work to be writing needs sustainable income to live, eat and afford the various expenses which make up this thing we call life. That is what brought me to Patreon. I post a great deal of original writing free of charge on social media - at least two new poems every day - because I think that art and writing should be as accessible as possible. At the same time, writing is a job like any other, and I think it's super important that writers (and artists generally!) can earn a wage, or less people will become writers and there will be less writing, which is bad.

So it's a way of earning a wage, which means I can spend more time actually writing, and less time worrying about advertising and things like that. By joining me on here for as little as $2 per month you are LITERALLY helping me create, do the thing I love, immerse myself in art and supporting art generally. THAT IS WONDERFUL. And I want to thank anyone who does that - which is why I love Patreon's reward system so much. If you become a patron, I get to send you a whole load of cool things! Which brings me on to...

What do you get for becoming a Patreon!?

Check out the list of rewards and the various tiers. For just two dollars per month you get a thank you email from me, access to all my exclusive blog posts about writing, writing tips, social media and all the business of being a writer, access to videos and the ability to ask me questions for those videos, as well as extracts from my novels and unpublished poetry. 

From then on upwards you can get poetry postcards posted to you, tags, shout-outs and dedicated videos on my instagram, personalised poetry - even feedback and big gift packs. There's loads of other rewards too!! You can find all the rewards on the right hand side of this page.

I hope that the rewards are a nice mix of books and poetry, and also advise and feedback for anyone hoping to achieve their own dream of becoming a writer.

Thank you for stopping by - and A TRILLION MORE THANKS if you decide to become a patron :)

Goals
$0 of $250 per month
This would be such an unbelievable milestone in patronage - it would enable me to devote more time to actual writing work, scale back advertising campaigns on social media so that I can focus on posting original, new content and most of all it would help me live and develop my dream career as a writer. Anyone who helps even slightly towards this goal will have my eternal gratitude and I will do everything in my power to repay you.
