Shanti Hershenson is a teenager who advocates for anti-bullying, and you may find her at open mic-nights, performing her spoken word poem, Needles & Thorns, which is about the struggle of bullying in middle schools.
Shanti Hershenson’s first two novellas were published when she was in the sixth grade, although her writing journey started long before then. Ever since she could hold a pencil, marker, or crayon, she was creating stories. They started from pictures, mere scribbles, and eventually, turned into captivating tales.
Shanti lives in California with her parents, sister, and furry friends. Besides writing, she enjoys skateboarding, Beyblading, free-running, falconry, and of course, reading.
She writes in a variety of genres, including Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Historical Fiction, although she mostly sticks to Sci-Fi.
In this episode you will learn:
- How Shanti started writing
- What to do with writer’s block
- Her experience being bullied
- What parents can do if their child is being bullied
