Would you like to receive honest feedback on a piece of writing you're not sure of its construction?

When the Black Diamond Writers' Network meets next month writers will have the opportunity to both give and receive open and honest feedback. The meeting will be an open session offering either small- or large-group critiquing depending on the number of writers looking to participate.

Writers who would like to have their work critiqued should bring one page of a work-in-progress (no previously published pieces, please), double-spaced. Writers are asked to bring 15 copies of their piece for the other attendees.

If you would like to learn more, visit the monthly meeting from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the Tamaqua Public Library, 30 S. Railroad St., Tamaqua. The meeting is free and open to the public.
