Want to get published?
Learn how to get your literary work published at roundtable discussions, "Write it Right - Get Published" to be held at public libraries in Lehighton, Tamaqua and Jim Thorpe over the next three weeks.
The sessions, held by the Black Diamond Writers' Network, will take place from 7-8 p.m. Thursday at Tamaqua Public Library, 30 S. Railroad St., Tamaqua; from 6:30-7:30 p.m. March 9 at Dimmick Memorial Library Annex, 58 Broadway, Jim Thorpe and from 6:30-7:30 p.m. March 11 at the Lehighton Area Memorial Library, 124 North St., Lehighton.
Members of the Black Diamond Writers' Network who have published articles and/or books will give pointers on how to write for and find the markets that will publish your work.
For those who would like to learn more, the Black Diamond Writers' Network will host its first annual "Write it Right" writers conference on Saturday, Apr. 17 at the Schuylkill County Council for the Arts, Pottsville. The event is supported by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency, through its regional arts funding partnership, Pennsylvania Partners in the Arts (PPA).
State government funding for the arts depends upon an annual appropriation by the state and support from the federal National Endowment for the Arts. PPA is administered in this region by the Berks Arts Council.
