Welcome to For Artists and Writers

I sincerely hope that you find your visit fun and educational. If you are filled with creativity but have no idea where to start or where to go to improve your craft; I have posted some of my favorite websites to share with you.

If you are called to paint or express your voice whether it's in poetry, or a murder mystery; here at "For Artists & Writers" you will find links to free lessons that will help you get started or improve.

" Links to Free Art Lessons" and "Links for Writers," are not overloaded with so much print that you have to search your way around in order to navigate. For your comfort, I have simplified everything.

You can view my paintings by clicking on the link in the left column. My prints are for sale at a very reasonable price. The renowned Artist, Maria Vergori Raffaele's paintings are for sale through her agent.

Enjoy the incredible writings of some of my favorite contemporary poets. They make one think and feel, pulling you in, sometimes through metaphor and sometimes through unadulterated grit. I hope that you enjoy their work as much as I do.

I have written six books of poetry and in four of them, I decided to add a journal for a place to pen your thoughts. I felt that it may inspire the reader to write, adding to my work their own voice. I encourage all to write. It liberates the soul. My books and E-books are available LULU.com at Amazon, the nook at Barnes and Noble and many other online book stores.

My charities are very important to me. I chose to give to

"The American Red Cross," "The Wounded Warrior Project," "Unicef "and "St. Judes Childrens Hospital" in monthly systematic payments. For me, it works well, but even a one time gift of a few dollars truly helps.

Contact me for more information and please, don't forget to sign the guest book. Your personal email is private and no cookie is attached.

Thanks again! Sincerely, Beverly
