Frequency welcomes two long-time participants and contributors, Rosalynde Vas Dias and Karen Haskell, as Artistic Director & Operations Director moving forward. They offer these words:

“We are very excited to step into the director positions: Rosalynde Vas Dias as Artistic Director, and Karen Haskell as Operations Director. We are committed to Frequency’s mission of providing quality, craft-centered writing classes for the Providence community and beyond . We also want to extend a very heartfelt thank you to out-going Director Seth Tourjee for their commitment and hard-work. They have been instrumental in Frequency’s success. 

Fall classes start at the beginning of October (Check them out!).”
— Rosalynde and Karen
