NOTE for Authors and Artists

Interested in being considered for our PAINTED STORIES series? 

Please send an email to nevadawriters@gmail.com and include a link to your web-site and a brief description of your work.  We offer a $100 stipend to artists for time/materials and the rights to use your paintings after the event for future promotions. When we are allowed, we hold an auction at the end of each event and split the proceeds 50/50 so as an artist you not only get paid, you get your name and artwork out into the hands of art lovers too!
