What is Wyn Cooper reading?

You may know Wyn Cooper's work best from the popular song “Fun,” a poem from his first book which was turned into Sheryl Crow’s Grammy-winning song “All I Wanna Do.”

He has published three books of poems: The Country of Here Below, The Way Back, and Postcards from the Interior, as well as a chapbook, Secret Address, and many more poems in literary journals and magazines.

He is the author of the current feature at "Writers Read."

Learn more about Wyn Cooper's work at his website. Some late breaking news not yet posted there includes poems forthcoming in Poetry, Southern Review, and Crazyhorse. He and Madison Bell are going into the studio next month to record their second cd, which is based in part on poems from Cooper's most recent book, Postcards from the Interior. Songs from their first cd, Forty Words for Fear, have been used on five television shows in the past year.
