The following quotes provide a glimpse into what Frank has to offer readers and listeners.

“Diane Frank crafts more than words, she brews word medicine. I feel her syllables like salve penetrate my skin to heal deeply hidden wounds.” Robin Lim, author of “As a Child in the Religion of Gratitude.”

“Not since William Blake has there been a poet who has seen so much heaven in our world, where an angel will surprise you, in the swirling blue translucence of a long window of Venetian glass. Her vision is timely and what we have been thirsting for. Don’t hesitate to follow her energized voice into this Temple of Words,” writes Rustin Larson, author of “Crazy Star.”

On May 20 Frank will lead a writers workshop from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Penny Shrawder’s Art Studio, 1270 Mt. Rainier Drive. Registration for this workshop is $75 and the sign-up list is at Mountain Spirit Bookstore. For directions and other information call (530) 577-5229.

In the workshop, “Learn How to Tell the Story of Your Soul,” Frank gives a creative jump-start to novelists, poets and journal writers. The workshop is open to all writers, regardless of experience.
