I have started an IndieGoGo fund-raiser to help with the costs of attending MANY GODS WEST in Olympia, WA next month, where I will be presenting on Regional Cultus (drawing primarily from a rather length article of mine which appears in the latest volume of Walking the Worlds Polytheist Journal). The thing is, I’ve had a recent and sudden interstate move, and unforeseen household medical expenses, which have me in a position of financial opposition in actually getting there (and being able to eat, when I do).
My fundraising goal is to cover travel and eating expenses, and I plan on sleeping in a staff freight elevator or at the bench by the smoking area outside, because that’s how shit gets done. In the event that there is any excess left over at the end, it will be donated immediately to the operational costs of the newly rebuilt POLYTHEIST.COM which just launched its new design this week!
Please feel free to share, and of course contribute if you can, to this! In addition to my lecture, I will be meeting with various-and-sundry from the community, and likely important conversations (on topics like community leadership, regional gatherings, ritual conferences and the like) so this is a big deal. Also, all contributors are invited to buy me a drink and/or a cigar in Olympia.
I will be autographing other people’s books with personalized messages and/or forged signatures in exchange for alcohol and meat while in attendance, and in general, looking forward to spending time with (and meeting) some of the Polytheist community I only ever get to engage with through a computer screen.
Thanks for your support!
