I Will Trade You Art in Exchange for Your Sponsorship.
Shanna Melton sharing poetry at The 3rd Annual Writer's Weekend at The Mark Twain House
The 5th Annual Writer's Weekend at The Mark Twain House is approaching from September 23rd-25th 2016! I attended the Third Annual Writer's Weekend at The Mark Twain House. The reason why I did so was to obtain more ideas and information that would help me as I plan my community events, specifically The Writer's Group. This experience offered me personal growth with my own writing while also expanding my vision for the programs that I create. So many of the exercises that I experienced there were remixed and implemented into The Writer's Group and the workshops and and after school programs that I conduct.. It is important that you share what you learn with your community and I have reinvested the ideas and techniques that I learned there into ours since I last participated.
As an artist, you should always find opportunities to learn and add to your repertoire. Due to my life recently shifting, my budget is having to catch up to my vision and I will need sponsorship in order to attend this year.
If you sponsor my attendance I commit to a few things which include and are not limited to...
-If you make a donation of $20 or more, I will send you an 8x10 inch art print. Just add your address to the note portion of the PayPal submission and you will have a signed print of my choosing in just a few days.
-If you make a donation of $20 or less, I will send you a thank you card with a personal note of gratitude crafted specifically for you. Just add your address to the note portion of the PayPal submission.
-If you make a donation of $50.00 or more, I will send you an autographed copy of my poetry collection titled "Unraveling My Thoughts".Just add your address to the note portion of the PayPal submission.
-I will document my experience at this event so that you know what I learned throughout the weekend and experience it with me.
The cost of The 5th Annual Writer's Weekend at The Mark Twain House is $180.00 plus the cost of a nearby hotel for two nights. Once I have received the max of $450.00 I will make a Thank You announcement that will be posted here and on my Facebook page.
Thank you in advance for your support and prayers. Please let me know if you plan to attend as it would be wonderful share this experience with members of my community. It proved to be an enhancing experience in the past and I am sure it will be again.
