Living in the jungles of mainland for seven years, American poet Shannon Frances has found that Malaysia provides plenty of poetic inspiration. Her search for like-minded people, books and good vegetarian food brings her to Penang Island often, where she is gratified to find art and literature alive, well and deserving of support. Having found a receptive audience for her provokative “Bad Poetry” series, she is currently working on a new series of poems, entitled “Malaysian Statistics”. Shannon is deeply convinced of the value of democracy and is excited and proud to support local democracy in Malaysia.
