My name is Gersande La Flèche (they/their/them), and I'm an aspiring writer who lives in Montréal (Tiohtiá:ke), Québec where I work as a consultant, content writer and translator — you can read more about me and the origins of this blog over here.

I now accept recurring monthly or annual donations from patrons directly through this website.

The vast majority of this blog will remain available to the public and to free subscribers. But becoming a member (subscriber) or patron (paid subscriber) of this website will get you:

No Subscription Subscriber Paid Subscriber
Member of the public, just visiting Free Tier Member Annual or Monthly Patron
Access to all public posts Access to all (free tier) subscriber-only page (Members' Corner) and posts; Access to all paid subscriber-only page (Patrons' Corner) and posts;
Option to receive new blog posts directly in their inbox Option to receive new blog posts directly in their inbox
Member-only goodies (TBD) Patron-only goodies (TBD)
Monthly short excerpt of my own original writing (fiction), accompanied by commentary
Option to receive a snail-mail letter of thanks around Yule/the winter solstice

If you want to support this blog so that I can keep writing blog posts about what I'm reading and what I'm thinking about, so that I can keep producing the occasional vlog, so that I can devote the time I need to work on all my projects, you can support me monthly at 2 CAD a month or 20 CAD a year.

One-Time Tips (Ko-Fi)

If recurring support is not feasible, I also maintain a tip jar over on Ko-Fi and I greatly appreciate any and all support sent to me there!

Accountability & Paying It Forward

On top of supporting other artists and organizers, I also want to make sure that my work gives back to not only my own communities, but to the first communities who were here on the land I live on. Every December, I will calculate how much support I've received from my patrons throughout the year (including the one-time Ko-Fi donations) and donate 10% of that amount to mutual aid funds or grassroots organizations on the ground in Tiotiáh:ke/Montréal who do essential community work. I'll be transparent about this process here on my blog.
