|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 11:00 am on day Third of the month, repeating until December 17, 2019

Location: Curtis Gallery

The Writer’s Group is a space for people who love words to gather and create new work.  The mission is to use prompts and other creative tools to motivate the creative process.  The purpose is to create a space to share and get reactions from other writers who can advise us on how to enhance our work.  This is not an open mic or showcase event. This is a place to develop our writing.


SHANNA T. MELTON is an award winning poet, painter, educator and art consultant from Bridgeport, CT. Shanna has performed in poetry venues from Atlanta through Canada. Her work carries the essence of humanity and poetry.  She began facilitating workshops including The Writer’s Group and creating poetry venues including Lyrical Voices Night of Poetry & Arts out of a strong desire to build a network of artists who can encourage one another to continue creating. In June 2017, she received the Arts & Culture Empowerment (ACE) Award from The Cultural Alliance of Fairfield County honoring her work as an artist. Shanna is currently a nominee for the State of Connecticut Poet Laureate.
