Here is where I celebrate my dear patrons on Patreon.
Patreon is a membership platform that makes it easy for readers, followers and fans to support the writers, artists and creators they love. My Patreon page is here: Patreon.com/OrnaRoss
I have some patrons who are indie poets themselves as well as reader patrons who love inspirational poetry. All receive access to exclusive free poetry and other bonuses. Poet patrons also receive self-publishing information and updates and the opportunity to submit to The Self-Publishing Poetry Podcast.
I’m honored that so many of my patrons are awesome poets themselves. If you’re a reader, scroll below to read about these wonderful people and their work.
MY POET PATRONS ON PATREON
Thank You Poet Patrons…
… for making your private world public, for being a “priest of the invisible” (Wallace Stevens) and for proving that poetry is not dead but thriving as never before in our digital days.
I look forward to reading your work and perhaps featuring some of your poems in Indie Poetry Please! (The Self-Publishing Poetry Podcast).
MY READER PATRONS ON PATREON
Thank You Reader Patrons…
… for valuing and supporting poetry.
You know I have a lot of commitments and how busy it can get around here.
Your contribution motivates me to show up, to stay connected to the creative font, to keep on writing new books and poems.
Reader Patrons 1: Poetry stream
“I’m Mala Naidoo from Australia, an author, teacher and university student advisor.
Not a lot of people know that it took over a decade of procrastination before I wrote my first novel.”
“I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because of the value and inspiration she offers as a respected, trusted voice in the publishing world as mentor, advisor, accomplished poet and author.”
“I’m Rohan Quine from London, a novelist.
Not a lot of people know that I share a home with an ever-curious, sociable, tidy and caramel-coloured young rabbit, who loves to scamper around the apartment and balcony, getting under my and my boyfriend’s feet (and who will soon have a bunny girlfriend to scamper with).”
“I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because I’ve always been a fan of the (divine) feminine – something that suffuses many of her works, and something that human society will be enriched by embracing much more than it’s done in recent centuries.”
Reader Patrons 2: Poetry stream + ebooks
“I’m Maura Dolan from Dublin, Ireland an executive coach and facilitator and not a lot of people know that as well as my love of fun and laughter I have a deep commitment to working with people to bring about change.”
“I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because I have followed Orna’s remarkable journey to bring her passion for poetry, English and the written word to a wide and international audience”

Reader Patrons 4: Custom Pledge or No Reward Patrons
“I’m Deborah Bluestein (Dorah Blume) from Boston, a writer/illustrator.
Not a lot of people know that I had a love affair with a blue guitar.
I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because I am so grateful for all she does for the writing community and most especially for the guided meditations and f-r-e-e-writes I have been doing with her since September of 2018.”
