My Patrons on Patreon

Here is where I celebrate my dear patrons on Patreon.

Have you heard about Patreon, the membership platform that makes it easy for readers, followers and fans to support the creators they love? My Patreon page is here: Patreon.com/OrnaRoss

Some of my patrons are indie poets themselves, most reader patrons who love inspirational poetry. All receive access to exclusive free poetry and other bonuses, depending on their tier.

Poet patrons also receive self-publishing information and updates and the opportunity to submit their work to Indie Poetry Please!

I’m honored that so many of my patrons are awesome poets themselves. If you’re a reader, scroll down to read about these wonderful people and their work.


Orna Ross patrons

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 submissions to Indie Poetry Please! (The Self-Publishing Poetry Podcast).

I’m a writer, a poet, and a blogger. Not a lot of people know that I once made banana bread, without bananas!

I’m Orna’s patron on Patreon because I enjoy Orna’s podcasts and also I’d like to be a member of this community.”
