Firstly, thank you for being a patron, you can't imagine the difference it is making. If you've not already become my patron, you probably want to know what I do. 
I'm a poet with four collections of poetry published and I am currently working on a new collection. I write about a lot of things, but the project I am currently working on, and the one that I need time (and time is money!) for,  is my next collection. My next collection is about my own and society wide experiences of infertility, IVF, stillbirth and choosing to live childlessly. It's an exploration of how a childless infertile woman fits back into society after the infertility treatment is done and there is no happy ending, it's also about the pressures placed on for women and their bodies to be a certain way, and how we talk about grief and how we treat death. Which sounds like a heavy subject, but it's actually a collection about finding love, finding love in my own body, finding love in my experiences, love for women in all their brilliance and difference and the love that I have for my little lost daughter. The thing is, in order to work on this I have to lose money and time on other, paid work. If you become one of my patrons, you'll be rewarded, with actual stuff, not just a feel good squishy loveliness, which you will also get because you're helping me to break taboos around stillbirth and break down assumptions around infertile and childless people, so a big THANK YOU for that. And I hope you enjoy what I produce.

Goals
$4 of $1,000 per month
This would enable me to spend at least two full days a week working on my next collection, it will relieve the stress and anxiety of being a freelance writer and give me the chance to write on this very important subject in the best way i can, fully focused on creating. This will mean that the collection has more chance of being successful and more chance of helping to break taboos around stillbirth and childlessness. This would be my ideal.
