This is all work I do in my spare time, without any institutional support. Unlike a university academic, I don’t have the same access to academic libraries, journals, and the like. It costs me money to buy books, do photocopying and printing, travel around for research, and attend relevant workshops.
That’s why I’ve created an account on Patreon, where you can become a patron of my work for just $1 (or more if you wish). Patrons get access to my work in progress, and get to suggest and guide what they want me to work on next. My initial goal is to cover my expenses, but if I can make $500 a month that’ll help me take more time to work on research, writing, events, and community building.
Whether you want to be a patron or not, please take a moment to fill in the quick poll on my Patreon page, letting me know what areas of my work you’re most interested in!
