BECOME A PATRON! http://www.patreon.com/MarshallJamesKavanaugh
Hi and welcome to Patreon, a website where you can become a patron to my creative projects! Your contributions ensure that I not only have more time to devote to my own writing, but it will give me further financial stability to use in empowering other poets and artists around the country, taking them on tour, setting up regional events, and publishing their chapbooks to reach a wider audience.
What do you get in return for your support?
For your support, I am offering patrons a chance to see the behind the scenes of my writing through access to previously published collections as well as rough drafts of different projects I am currently working on.
I am in the process of writing my first novel about my travels around the country, and I’d like to invite you to join me in the process. Rough drafts, journal entries, and other related content that adds to the story will be published here for patrons who donate $3 or more a month.
For just $1 a month you will get instant access to all of my writing series Travel By Haiku. Volumes 1 through 5: Still Trippin’ Across The States was published in March 2016 and is available for you to read, while future collections are posted here as they come together, with related animations and video poems. I am also making available previously and soon-to-be published short stories, offering personalized poems, and giving away other products for higher tiers of support. Hey, if you donate $100 a month, I’ll even take you on your very own road trip across the country!
Why should you become a patron?
For several years now I have been taking other writers on tour, publishing their work, and connecting communities through poetry around the country. You might have seen me on tour with the Poets For Peace, snatched a chapbook I published with A Freedom Books, or requested a poem from me on the street when I was set up as a Dream Poet For Hire. The time and cost of being a traveling writer can be exceptional. I’ve learned how to keep my expenses within a small budget, so every dollar goes a long way. With your support I will be able to take this dream even further into the future, giving even more back to all of these communities I’ve met along the way.
Thank you so much for your support,
Marshall James Kavanaugh.
