Poems and Stories
Doppio Books, New York
"Angel Shannon has the rare gift of being able to craft stories and poems with words that say what we all feel and all express--what we all hope for. Her voice gives a new spin...She is jazz, old school and hip-hop and regardless of the rhythm she is always for real. Hers is a voice I know we'll be hearing for many years to come."
--- Patrice Gaines, Author "Laughing In The Dark" and "Moments of Grace"
"Angel Shannon's writings remind us of the rich and varied legacy in
African-American literature. Skillfully she maintains that aesthetic tradition and joins a symphony of voices that compel us to confront existing versions of reality and reate alternative ways of thinking and being."
--- Deborah Tulani Salahu-Din, Professor of English, Morgan State University and Author "Songs and Seasons"
"I just want to let you know how deeply touched I was by your work. Your imagery is outstanding and it speaks to the high level of mastery you've reached; it shows how much soul and power you put into your work."
---D. Diaz, Audience Member, Open Mic
