For years, I didn't think I could ask for financial support for my work. And then when I asked for it, you gave it. And I'll never cease to be grateful to you.

Your paid subscription is going to be used to pay for childcare, a new laptop (the keys are falling off my current sweet old girl), groceries, the work of BIPOC writers featured in this space, the cost of this website, my time, my research, the years I worked without asking for support from the people who read my work, dinners for hungry families in my local community and dinners for hungry families in our digital community, new accessible features for the website and the occasional pastrami sandwich.

Thank you so much for supporting my writing with your hard earned dollars. Thank you so much for reading my writing. Thank you so much for sharing it. Thank you so much for being here.

xo,
