My name is Shannon and I’m happy that you’ve stopped by to get to know me and my work. I started writing mainly for fun and entertainment as Peace Corps volunteer from 2007 to 2009. While living in the South Pacific, a place called Tonga, writing was a much-needed outlet that also provided the means to share my experiences with family and friends. Writing is now a career.
I cover the growing music scene in Wilmington as the editorial assistant at encore magazine, as well as various news and happenings in the area. You can read some of my most recent work on the home page. I am also a freelance writer and part-time instructor at UNC-Wilmington’s Department of Communication Studies. Please feel free to read on and reach out with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org
All the best,
Shannon Rae Gentry
