Poetry Workshop (II) with Shanna T. Melton

April 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Curtis Gallery

Unleash your inner poet  and celebrate National Poetry Month with this (second!) guided, creative poetry workshop.  Led by poet Shanna T. Melton, this workshop is for people who love words to gather and create new work. The workshop will use prompts and other creative tools to motivate the creative process. We will create a space to share and get a reaction from other writers who can advise participants on how to enhance their work—to develop their writing. No experience required except a willingness to participate.

Limited to 20 participants. Appropriate for ages 15+


Shanna T. Melton is an award winning Poet, Painter and Art Consultant from Bridgeport, CT.  Performing, exhibiting and creating performance venues since 1997 has offered great opportunities to share her work with diverse communities from Atlanta to Canada.  Her work carries the essence of humanity and poetry.  She facilitates workshops such as The Writer’s Group and Lyrical Voices Night of Poetry and Arts out of a strong desire to build a strong network of artists who can encourage one another to continue creating. Shanna has received many awards for her work including: Women to Know Award from the State of Connecticut and Bridgeport’s Black Pride, Humanitarian Award from the Al-Aziz Islamic Center, Bridgeport Girls Rock Award from The Polished Pearls Foundation, and the Arts & Culture Empowerment (ACE) from the Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County. Shanna is the author of two collections of poetry titled “A Voice in the Symphony” and most recently published “Unraveling My Thoughts”.
