Prompt/Cope 12/3/17: “Buddy Bolden”

Buddy‘s first issue is finally online…and the reading period for issue two is open!   Did you know Buddy is named after Buddy Bolden (1877-1931), a cornetist in New Orleans?  He is considered by some to be the “father” of Jazz (then called “jass”).  He was committed to an insane asylum where he spent the rest of his life…but his legend lived on.   Write a piece that is about a musician (or painter or writer) who is known for having mental health issues.  Buddy will start accepting visual art, so you may want to also produce a visual piece.    keep writing…   (by David Welper)  (cover image for issue #1 by Rob Gray)
