1. I wrote a short piece on Will Oldham for the music issue of Poetry Crush. I'm glad to be included with these contributors writing interesting pieces on some of my favorite musicians and songs.
2. Love for Donna Summer, who was (strangely?) important to me as a child.
3. I'm working on more collaborative poems with Todd Colby. TC is back in Brooklyn, and I am here in Vermont, but through the magic of technology, we can quickly send each other lines. I am also working on some other writing. And I'm surrounded by visual artists and starting to get to see their work (and will get to see more in the next few weeks). I've been thinking a lot about paintings.
4. I'm at a residency in VT until 6/8. If you'd like to send me a postcard or good old-fashioned handwritten letter, here is the address: Joanna Penn Cooper c/o VSC, PO Box 613, Johnson, VT 05656.
