T-J, arts working to uncover "secrets"


Artists and writers interested in participating in a joint project between the arts and the Times-Journal is invited to attend the second of two organizational meetings Wednesday, December 9, 6pm, at the Community Library, 110 Union Street, Cobleskill.
Under discussion will be the creation and logistics of a regular T-J column showcasing hidden and lesser known local arts events and artists.
Sharon Springs writer Karen Cookson, Renee Nied, grant coordinator for Schoharie County arts grants, and T-J editor Patsy Nicosia are working together on the project.
"We're looking for interested writers who can find and write about those little, underexposed events and artists, as well as people who can point us toward them," Ms. Nied explained.
Writers will receive a stipend.
They must be able to meet deadlines and handle constructive editing.
For more information and to help move the project forward, attend the meeting on the 9th or email Ms. Nied at schohariearts-grants@gmail.com.
