I'm Tilly. You may know me from Twitter (@femmenistfatale) or my blog That Pesky Feminist, or some amalgamation of the two. I've been writing there and freelancing elsewhere for a good few years now, and you can view the results of that at my portfolio, tillygrove.contently.com.

It's only been something I do on the side until now, but I'm about to enter a new chapter of my life and that's going to change. I have PTSD and am undergoing the treatment to match, and that's made it hard to work a 9-5. Writing, be it as a freelancer for other outlets or on my own blog, is something I love and would like to support myself on, but I'm going to need some help to do it.

I write, and have always written, deeply personal essays about my experiences with mental health, body image, rape culture, alongside feminist critiques of music, films, and cultural events. I'd like to be able to do more of this, especially on the things I know you, my readers (which may be all two of you), relate to the most. I listen to your responses to my work, and I know the things I write that you like the most are articles about mental health, about sex, about dating, and about life that other people don't or can't write about. That's what you'll get if you donate.

I know that times are tough and money is tight (which is, in fact, why I'm here), and I would never ask for money if I didn't need it and I would never expect anyone to give a penny. However, if you do feel able to give even a quid - and you feel like what I do with my blog is even remotely worth something - I would be extremely grateful. It will allow me to create more of the content that you like to read. Where before I've seen you request that I write things and I haven't had the time, with your donations I'll be able to be responsive and write exactly what you want me to. Better, I'll make sure you get to read it before anyone else.

There's lots of other things I'd like to do with That Pesky Feminist given the chance, including a Youtube channel and longer form essays about specific subjects. I'd also like to create a zine, which will remain secret for now. With your help, I can make these things a reality and create what you will enjoy. If that's enough for you, your support will mean the world to me. Thank you!

Let me level with you here - I've got a lot of experience with stuff I really wish I didn't. I'm talking mental illness (especially in the workplace), stalking and harassment, bullying, fatphobia and biphobia, and a host of other life struggles. On the other side of the spectrum, I've also got experience of online dating and relationships. In my head I'd be a great agony aunt - more 'dump him' than 'talk to him', if you get me - and I think a That Pesky Feminst video channel would be the perfect place for that. And I've probably got some rants in me, too. This level of funding would allow for the time taken to write, film and edit.
