And she’s just been selected as a MacDowell Fellow and will be spending several weeks working at the New Hampshire artist colony this summer. This is a big deal.
Since its founding more than 100 years ago, MacDowell has provided creative space and fellowship to our greatest artists including Leonard Bernstein, Thornton Wilder, Aaron Copland, James Baldwin, Spalding Gray, and, more recently Alice Walker, Alice Sebold, Jonathan Franzen, and Michael Chabon.
As always I’m very proud of Patricia.
Her latest poetry collection, Shoulda Been Jimi Savannah, is pure genius. You can find it, and the rest of her work, here.
