“I think its a responsibility for any artist to protect freedom of expression and to use any way possible to extend this power.”
It is up on my professor Jen Hofer’s site: https://tinypresspractices.wordpress.com/interview-shanna-compton-bloof-books/
Our student Tiny Press projects are listed here:
(Note my Corgi son: Happy)
Okay that’s all I have to say for a while….I mean it is summer right?
Writing on The Walls: My first complete memoir/manuscript which was my thesis at Calarts.
Peter Pan Trail Tales: A collection of memoir-like stories about my teenage bus hopping days; think of an early 90s version of My Own Private Idaho, but a little less prostitution.
The Gospels According to Plath: an elegy poetry chapbook about my oddly symbiotic relationship with Sylvia Plath and our Mclean hospital connection. Also a serious commentary on the subtext of the fetishization of Sylvia Plath and her works. My first edition is done!
A Documentary project: with Elyn Saks about mental illness here and overseas and a few other important topics. (TBA)
I figured out how to import my blogger into WordPress and I made it through graduate school. One of those might be more impressive than the other. I mean let’s face it, the internet and blogging sites are far more complex than any sort of higher education right?
And so what’s next?
I feel so very adult not using Tumblr for once, graduating, and you’d think I would be, but I do not.
I do not feel adult nor will I ever feel it.
I might always be lost, lost but happy to be here, on this planet with all of you, but isn’t that just me being honest?
What else? How about you?
Ai can’t be here. @aicantbehere Los Angeles Ca
Ai can’t be here for tea nor anything else that life has to offer.
Give him his passport now.
