New Addition to My “Poets on Patreon” Page: Poetry Writer Patron

Do you write poetry? Would you like to make a living as a poet or songwriter? Did you know that there is a growing presence of poets on Patreon who are being paid by their fans to write their poems?

My Patreon page has been running for a few months now and is beginning to gather poetry readers. It feels like time to add in the writers: the poets.

So I’ve just introduced a new Tier on my Patreon page. Poetry Writer Patron.

Alongside my own writing, I’m on a personal mission to empower other creatives, through digital publishing and creative enterprise. So I also write guidebooks for authors and creative movers and makers of all kinds. And I run the Alliance of Independent Authors and the Creativist Club.

My Patreon page, though, is just for poetry. It offers patrons a new inspirational poem on the first day of each month, and the poem is exclusive to patrons for at least 90 days.

From October 2018, I’m also offering a monthly “Ask Me Anything” podcast to poets who want to take advantage of digital tools and techniques to make a living from writing and publishing poetry.

Poetry and People Power

People power is rocking poetry, taking it out of books and dusty libraries into streets and pubs, political meetings and festivals. Can people power also offer creative and financial freedom to poets and songwriters? With your help, I’m hoping we can demonstrate that the answer to that question is a resounding: YES.

I’m hoping also to show that poetry still matters in our fast-paced, distractable, digital times. And that social media, global audiences and crowdsourced micro-payments can generate a viable and sustainable income stream, even from the minority artform of poetry.

If you write songs or poems, I’ll be delighted to answer any questions you might have about writing and publishing poetry, and how to make a living as a poet or songwriter in our digital age.


This audio show will be exclusive to my Poetry Writer Patrons only.

In return for $5 a month, you will receive all the benefits that my reader patrons get… but you will also learn how to publish your own poetry for a profit.

And you’ll be listed here on as one of my poetry writer patrons.

For as little as $1 a month, you can become a poetry patron and receive free books and other bonuses and exclusive poetry written just for you.
