Writers House director joins newspaper’s A-list

Andrea Cohen, director of Merrimack College's Writers House, is featured in an innovative public art project by The Sentinel & Enterprise newspaper of north central Massachusetts.

The newspaper is collaborating with artist Anna Schuleit Haber on “The Alphabet,” in which each letter will be accompanied by prose, poetry or journalism over 26 days. The letters themselves are created by renowned type designers, calligraphers, stone carvers and graphic designers from four continents.

A short poem written by Cohen — along with a prose piece by writer Adrian Nicole LeBlanc, who was Merrimack’s writer-in-residence last fall; artist Haber spoke at the Writers House in winter 2014 — lead the project, which is produced in cooperation with the Fitchburg Art Museum, under a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
