Shannon is thrilled to be a virtual writing mentor through the Grand Marais Arts Colony this fall 2020 and winter 2021.

Mentoring sessions are one-hour in length, tailored to address your aesthetic, professional, and craft questions. Upon registration, students will receive a survey to select a mentor subject and tell us more about their needs.

Shannon is available to connect with artists on the following topics:

  • Portfolio Review
  • Input and guidance on current in-progress work
  • Goal setting for short and long-term projects
  • Get out of the Box: Exercises for experimentation and risk-taking
  • Discussion of materials and supplies
  • Marketing: matching your artistic vision with how you share your work
  • Identifying professional opportunities, such as exhibitions, residencies, or funding sources
  • Crafting an artist statement or bio
