Amanda Palmer launches advice column as newest Substack Writer in Residence
Amanda Palmer is many things: musician and Dresden Dolls lead singer, writer, performer, activist, mom, and self-described “happy and hyper-social weirdo who likes making feelings into art.” Starting in February, she’ll be adding Substack Writer in Residence to her long list of creative pursuits with the debut of her new publication, Ask Amanda.
Substack writer residencies are designed to give established writers a place to experiment, share knowledge, and inspire other writers and readers in the Substack community. Amanda’s new publication will explore the possibilities of the direct relationship between a writer and reader community with a fresh spin on the advice column format that she calls “a crowd-sourced, everybody talk, conversation salon, kicked off by questions from you” and accompanied by original artwork from longtime collaborator Sarah Beetson.
“My column isn't so much a traditional ‘advice column’ as much as it is a community campfire, where my readers and I throw down our feelings in a co-created conversation that the robust comments section of Substack will be able to host. It's gonna be a lot of feelings, and given what everyone's going through right now, emotionally, it couldn't be more perfectly timed.”
