You’ve probably noticed many essays on my blog say “protected” and require a password.

These are “supporter-only” essays, poems, and other works, many of them longer and more intimate than my public writing. To gain access to these, I request readers give back by supporting me on Patreon for as little as $1 a month.

My many supportive readers–quite a few of which have been my patrons from the very beginning–are how I am able to eat, pay rent, and not worry so much about survival so I have more time to write.

If you’d like to join them, the process is quite simple. Patreon will charge you at the beginning of each month at whatever level you choose. You’ll receive the password for all exclusive posts upon subscribing, and you can cancel anytime (and still continue to have access!).

To sign up, go to this link.

If you’d instead prefer to donate directly, I can accept donations via paypal (industrialise [at] gmail.com ). If you choose to donate this way, please also send me an email so I can reply with the supporter password.
