Hello you beauties…I need your help this fine day as I’m going to be rolling out a new feature for all you paid subscribers soon! I wanted to offer up another little incentive for people to hop behind the little paywall and become part of this amazing community of Signal Fire Light Chasers, and I think I’ve come up with a cool idea that many of you have messaged me about, asked about, or suggested.
Basically, a lot of you have asked for more “Behind The Scenes” info on the poetry, the process, the whole shebang. I’ve decided to start filming totally unscripted little videos where I explain the poems you all choose and love, behind the scenes info on what inspired them, which lines came first, and all that. I’m not going to promise them every single week, but I’ll do my best to get as many done as possible and keep them coming to you, embedded in here, on Signal Fire, for you to watch when you wish. I shall name it, Backlit, and I hope you love it.
SO, here’s where I need your help, so please, do ring in:
I think this will be something really cool, and I’m excited to finally open up some of the stories behind some of the poems, and I think it’s a rad little incentive to hop behind the paywall. It’s $5 a month, and it truly does change my life, and keeps me feeding my family and able to write and create poetry and essays and art, which I so hope you’re all still enjoying.
If you wanna join us, be able to access the community, the writing prompts, the discussion threads, and now, the behind the scenes videos, please, please, click the little button below!
I love you all.

Literally any of them. Lol.
there are so many that come to mind! i think one that is wildly loved that has always been a nice reminder is: “ promise me
you will not spend
so much time
to keep yout
that you forget,
how much you have always
to swim” ❤️
The Never Was would be my vote but I love it all !
Two of my all time favorites:
1) *my introduction to TKG!*
If I died tonight
I think I would like to come back
as your morning coffee
Just as strong
and just as necessary
2) *my life is “one too many adjectives”*
like old books.
with tired words
and broken ideas.
and one too many
I wouldn’t even know where to begin?! I’m completely in awe of your partnership with Sarah so I’d love to hear some of the deeper, maybe even naughtier, behind the scenes back stories from any of The Never Was… I’d like to spice things up w/ my own love, physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, so gimme some ideas! How about some of your faves to start?
borders or fear.
Follow your heart
no matter the cost.
-(Most days, this is my lockscreen on my phone). Totally love this one, along with literally any others. 😅
Oh, I missed this place.
First, this is a fabulous idea.
Second, favorite typewriter aeries - gosh were do I begin, other than even one Eva Green read, (100# is amazing,.. you and her are a match made in spoken poetry heaven)
I love this idea, and I love so many of your poems, it’s really hard to pick any out. I am fascinated by the Never Was, and would love to hear the backstory of where they came from and why they “never were”
I don't think I could pick a favourite poem.... I love them all so much. I have a copy of every single one of your books of poetry. But as someone who aspires to one day publish her own poetry, I would love to know some BTS/backstory about how you embarked on your journey to become a published poet; self publishing vs using a publisher; how you combat the pressure from publishers to have a crazy following on social media; how do you say f**k it to the algorithm and stay genuine for your audience/true to yourself and still have your books published. I find the pressure to "be somebody" on socials is just so huge these days.
Same here. All ?
