Poetry Updates

I have reached the editing process and it is exhausting.

I think I have finally written and compiled all of the poems I want to include in my poetry collection Crooked Letters to Crooked Lovers and now I’m starting to edit them all and format them the way I want them in the final version! It’s been really interesting to go through a lot of my older poems and revise them for this project and I’m really excited to see what the finished project will hold.

If you’d like to read some of the poems from the collection take a scroll through the “Poetry Collection” tab up top and let me know our thoughts!

Also, a little shameless self promotion, I also have a Patreon account set up which you can find here! If you don’t know what Patreon is let me give you a little run down of how it works.
If you’d like to support my art you can become a patron by pledging different amounts each month. I have different tiers of pledges listed out and each tier unlocks different rewards! The rewards are cumulative, meaning that if you pledge to a higher tier you also get the rewards from the previous tier! So as of right now, if you were to pledge $5 per month you would receive a personalized thank-you note mailed to you, access to my patron-only feed on Patreon where I post updates and polls, discounts on my freelance editing services, and, of course, my undying love and gratitude.

And if you becoming a patron isn’t for you that’s totally fine as well! You can always support my art in other ways such as liking my blog posts, interacting with me here and on other social media sites, and by spamming your friends with your favorite poems from my blog – I’m sure they’ll love you for it!

So now I head back to my desk and my binder and my favorite red pen and highlighter and edit the hell out of my thoughts, scribbles, and poems. Wish me luck.

love and light,

About the Author || Commissions

Hello lovelies,

I just wanted to create this quick post so that every one could get to know me a little bit better and so that I could share with you about my writing commissions!

My name is Megan Marie and I am a 20 year old student, writer, creator, and cat mom. I am a junior in college working towards a double major in Literary Studies and Sociology. I absolutely adore writing. Nothing has ever made as much sense as when I have a pen in my hand, allowing myself to write freely and openly. For the past three years I’ve been bouncing ideas around for a large-scale project and I’ve finally penned an outline for my first novel! It’s entitled Crooked Letters to Crooked Lovers and it tells the story of navigating life and relationships after abuse. It’s a very personal project, very close to my heart, and it has taken a long time to find the courage to put those words on paper and share them with the rest of the world.

I also craft a lot, too! I hand-make unique jewelry and dream catchers and other witchy essentials. Crafting and creating things by hand became another very important aspect of my life, next to my writing, when I became very ill during my last year of high school.

Chronic illness is a part of my life, it’s part of who I am. It’s not always the part I’d like to define myself as such as with “writer” or “student” or “creator”; but it’s a major part of who I am and it influences my day to day life. Writing and crafting are things that help me cope, help me live, and I love being able to share my journey with others.

So a little bit more about me in the present and about my commissions! I am currently in-between jobs and struggling to maintain an active presence in my schooling due to my mental illnesses. Right now, I am living with parents and trying to find a way to work until school begins again in the fall. My goal is to save up enough money to move up north to Humboldt County with my lovely datemate and my precious furbaby! So, as of right now, I’m opening up my writing commissions!

Prices for writing commissions are as follows:

  • Short story (~1000 words): $15
  • Short story (~2000 words): $20
  • Poem (2 stanzas): $15
  • Poem (4 stanzas): $20
  • Acrostic poem (1 word/name): $10
  • Acrostic phrase poem (1 phase/sentence): $25
  • Prose piece (300-500 words): $10

If you like to more information you can email me at piles.papers@gmail.com or simply leave a comment below!

I also do freelance editing work at PilesofPapers on Etsy!
And if you’d like to check out some of my crafts they can be found at CosmicWitchery on Etsy, as well!

If you would like to support me and my writing I also have a Patreon account where I share updates about my novel – I’d love for you to check it out. And if you like my writing and my blog and all of my free content; I would greatly appreciate if you would consider supporting me on Ko-fi – I truly do appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Love and light,

CosmicWitchery Updates

Hello lovelies!

I know it’s been a while since my last post but life has been hectic! Before I get back into my regular posting schedule I wanted to let you all know about the official relaunch of my Etsy shop CosmicWitchery.

The official relaunch was originally set to happen on April 1; however, I have been incredibly ill and in the process of moving so I haven’t had as much time or energy to dedicate to my beloved craft. Originally, I wanted to do a full relaunch and restock the entire shop and add in a bunch of new items! I have a bunch of ideas flowing through my head some wonderful editions headed to the shop for the everyday witch! However, due to my illness I’m afraid a full relaunch wouldn’t be possible for a few months so I’ve decided on better plan. Starting next week – April 10 – I will be adding everything I have already made to my shop so that they’re all up and ready for you lovely souls. Then, as I start to get better I’ll expand the items in the shop and continually add new and improved listings!

So keep an eye out this Monday!! I have a bunch of dream catchers, choker necklaces, and crystal creations all ready to be shipped out to new homes! And more items are already in the works and will probably be posted about next week so stayed tuned, witches!

Next week my blog and my shop will be back up and running as usual!

Love and light,
