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.

The informal talks are being offered as a promotion for the Black Diamond Writers Network's first annual “Write it Right” writers conference on Sat., Apr. 17, 2010, 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 appropriate by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and support from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. PPA is administered in this region by the Berks Arts Council.
