The Creators

Crown Shepherd is an emerging fiction, picture book, and comic book writer. Her writing is a result of her surroundings and upbringing. She has always been deeply rooted in literature and writing, but it wasn’t until she found more writers that looked like her that her writing soared. Those writers allowed her to dream and create by her own standards, and from a point of view of a black protagonist. As someone from an under-represented community, Crown knows what it means to have representation feed your creativity. The stories she wants to share are aimed at giving a voice to the voiceless. 

Mychal Batson  is a multidisciplinary artist and entrepreneur from St. Paul, MN who’s scribbled on pages and drawn in margins since he was old enough to hold a pencil. After graduating from Augsburg College with a degree in English: Creative Writing , he taught himself design and illustration.

Black Arts is incredibly important. Education is important. And inspiring future artist and dreamers to create entirely new worlds using just their imagination is of the upmost importance.
