Joannie Penderwick writes about music (rock), mental illness (schizophrenia), and culture (the whole sparkly swamp).
Her writing has appeared in Stockholm Review of Literature, Modern Rock Review, Classic Rock Review, The Spill Magazine, Cover Me, Crack the Spine, Front Porch Review, Slackjaw, and The Startup, among other publications.
Her favorite album is The Madcap Laughs by Syd Barrett. In books, she likes memoirs and epic Dickensian tragicomedies. So, John Irving. She owns two movies, Almost Famous and Frozen. Combine the most quixotic aspects of both stories and you have a pretty clear idea of who she is.
