Shailen Scott

Shailen graduated from Texas A&M University with a BA in English Literature with a focus in Creative Writing. She also holds an MFA in Creative Writing: Poetry from Arcadia University. In her spare time, she yells at her cat while she practices painting and drawing in hopes that she can illustrate her future poetry books. The work Shailen creates is representative of her experience as a black woman, who grew up living the awkward experience. In everything she does, she hopes to love herself fully and show other black women love.
