Murals by Yetti Frenkel

Poems often evoke images, so that art and poetry naturally enhance each other

Residency projects for writing can be funded in part by applying for a grant to work with Creative Teaching Partner artist Yetti Frenkel through the Massachusetts Cultural Council's Creative Schools Program.

Creative Writing and Illustration Workshop:
In this workshop participants write a story through a series of exercises, then illustrate their story in a blank, hardcover book. The workshop is divided into five sessions of two hours each, with an extra session added if desired for cover and back copy design. Topics covered are: Observation and description, first person narrative, dialogue, third person narrative, plot and outline, ending and editing, and illustration concepts for effective communication. Ages 9-Adult
