If you would like to pledge a bit less, you can still support us by becoming a patron with a smaller subscription each month: from around just £1* to tell us you think #FolkloreThursday is great, to around £5* as a thanks if you share your own books or work on the hashtag each week.
All you need to do is visit our Patreon page to pledge. Just select how much you’d like to pledge each month, and they’ll take you through the process of adding in your payment details (they’re never shared with us or anyone else). We’ll post regular updates on the Patreon page to let you know what we’re doing to keep the hashtag and website fabulously folkloric, and you’ll be first to know about any exciting behind-the-scenes #FolkloreThursday news before anyone else (sssshhhh!)
