The Writery Ink located in Bloomfield, CT was established in February 2018 by Vangella Hazle. Vangella is a Jamaican born teacher, author, editor, and now, independent book store owner. She loves the English language and the many variations of it including patois and ebonics. Opening a bookstore where she would be surrounded by books was her dream manifested. She wants to help as many local authors and artists realize their dreams as well. So she has a section in her book store dedicated to local authors. Authors, Shaneika Burchell-Kerr and Melissa-Sue John with their daughters, Imani Ariana Grant and Olivia Lauren John, respectively met Vangella at the local author showcase at the Prosser library and discussed working together. The time has come and they had a wonderful meeting discussing hosting the books and showcasing the youth authors. We are proud to announce our partnership with the Writery Ink. More details to come. In the mean time, please stop by and purchase a book or painting!
