The West Virginia Division of Culture and History in collaboration with the West Virginia Commission on the Arts will conduct statewide grant writing workshops during December and January. The arts section of the Division will present this free series of workshops with the help of local host organizations in six locations.
The arts staff will offer a grant writing overview with program deadlines, tips and timelines for success, and procedures to be used for an application. They also will discuss new initiatives and programs to support local arts projects, changes in current guidelines affecting fiscal year 2012 applicants, and how to plan for grant success.
Arts administrators, arts educators, arts volunteers, artists and art patrons are invited to participate in these practical and informal sessions.
The grant writing workshops are the result of the “Listening Tour” sessions conducted statewide by the arts staff in September.
“With the help of local hosts, we can reach the most people and have more impact in each community. We appreciate these hosts for assisting with bringing this much-needed workshop to their communities,” said Jeff Pierson, director of arts for the Division. A complete list of the workshop sites is attached.
Participants are requested to pre-register for the sessions at least one week prior to the session date. To pre-register or for more information about the grant writing workshops and the programs of the arts section and the West Virginia Commission on the Arts, contact Debbie Haught, community arts coordinator for the Division, at (304) 558-0240, ext. 714, or e-mail her at email@example.com.

Its administrative offices, led by Commissioner Randall Reid-Smith, are located at the Culture Center in the State Capitol Complex in Charleston, which also houses the state archives and state museum. The Culture Center is West Virginia’s official showcase for the arts. The agency also operates a network of museums and historic sites across the state.

Tarantini won four awards at the 2010 West Virginia Writer’s conference in Ripley. Her writing placed in humor, inspirational, book-length prose, and People’s Choice. The manuscript for her debut novel, “Confessions of a Life Half Lived,” is currently with an editor. The author’s blog is at http://www.caughtbutterflies.blogspot.com/.
“Diane has an approach that is so congenial and unassuming that before you know it she’s woven one of her vignettes around you. It’s really kind of rare and magical,” said West Virginia Writers, Inc. president emeritus Terry McNemar.
“The freshness of Diane's narrative voice, its whimsical tone, belies the grittiness of her subject matter. She crafts layered and often secret worlds with a light, deft touch,” said West Virginia author/editor Geoffrey Cameron Fuller.
Tarantini, a native of Huntington, graduated from West Virginia University’s Perry Isaac Reed School of Journalism. She has been a food panelist with The Dominion Post and currently writes for West Virginia Writers, Inc.
Webb is a co-founding member of Morgantown Poets, a monthly event serving the literary arts community in north-central West Virginia.

We can't prevent environmental disasters without preparing for them. That's why io9 is going to pay $2000 each to two people who write the best stories about environmental disaster. It's io9's Environmental Writing Contest - for science fiction and non-fiction.
io9 is looking for stories that deal with environmental disaster, whether caused by random asteroid impacts or oil drilling accidents. We believe that the first step to solving planet-scale problems is to assess, honestly and critically, what it would mean to experience such a disaster. We need mental models that can help policy-makers, researchers, and individuals prepare for the kinds of cataclysmic events that have occurred regularly throughout Earth's history.
We're holding this contest to reward people for coming up with ideas that could help avert the next Deepwater spill and Pacific garbage gyre - or help people prepare better for the next Indian Ocean tsunami and Haiti earthquake. Storytelling is a powerful tool. We want you to use it well.
Our awesome team of judges includes Paolo Bacigalupi (author of Ship Breaker andWindup Girl) and Jonathan Strahan (editor of the Eclipse anthologies), as well as others to be announced.
Your story should be between 3,000-5,000 words. It must be an original story that has not been published elsewhere.
The contest has two categories: Science Fiction and Non-Fiction. We will pick a winner from each.
Guidelines for Science Fiction Entries:
Your story should deal meaningfully and plausibly with some aspect of environmental disaster. There are no limits on the kind of disaster you explore. It could be an exploding star, a plague, tachyon pollution, nanotech diseases, climate change, or something else. What's important is that your story deal with causes and consequences. How did the disaster happen, who will benefit from it, how will people (or other creatures) respond to it? We don't want morality tales or after school specials here - just good stories that deal realistically with the subject matter.
Guidelines for Non-Fiction Entries:
Your story can be a piece of investigative journalism, a well-researched history, biographical/autobiographical narrative, or science/technology writing for a lay audience. You can write a profile of people or groups dealing with environmental disaster, analyze the science behind environmental problems, or cover the story of a disaster that has already happened. We prefer stories that involve reporting and research. Though the story must be original, you may base it on research you have already done for another project or piece of reporting.
Here's what you'll win:
Winning stories will be published on io9, and we will give $2000 each to the winners in each category.
Deadline for all stories is midnight PST, December 11.
How to submit your entry:
You may submit only ONE story. Please mail your submission as a .doc or .rtf attachment. In your cover letter, be sure to include your name and a reliable way to contact you. Also, please specify whether you are entering the science fiction or non-fiction category. Mail submissions to email@example.com.
Send an email to Annalee Newitz, the author of this post, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The two-day Literary Arts program includes:
The reading on Friday Oct. 29 begins with a writers reception at 6:30 p.m. followed by Manilla’s reading at 7:15 p.m., with music entertainment, and a book signing. Arts Mon will host a reception to celebrate the WVU Press release of Manilla’s short story collection, “Still Life With Plums”, a vibrant blend of dark humor and magic realism.
The workshop, “Put the 'Wow!' into Your Short Story” is on Saturday Oct. 30, led by Manilla who teaches creative writing at Marshall University. Hosted by Morgantown Writers, it will emphasize techniques that get the attention of editors and readers.
Featured author Marie Manilla is a West Virginia native and graduate of the famous Iowa Writers Workshop. Her new collection of short stories includes a cast of characters from the southern portion of the United States. “Still Life With Plums” weaves together the outwardly distant lives of several strangers, such as a “Black-Irish” West Virginian, a wise-cracking dog groomer, an emasculated husband, a Guatemalan widow, a Japanese-Latin-American poster child from WWII, and a meticulous predator.”
Manilla’s stories have appeared in The Chicago Tribune, Prairie Schooner, Mississippi Review, Calyx Journal, Kestrel, Portland Review, GSU Review, and other journals. She has written the forthcoming novel “Shrapnel”, which received a Fred Bonnie Award for Best First Novel by a writer.
The Oct. 30 workshop starts at 10:30 a.m. and ends at 11:45 a.m., at the Morgantown Public Library. There is a small fee for materials and registration is required. Seating is limited to 12 writers. To register, write to – Patricia.Patteson@mail.wvu.edu The writers meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the public library.
This Literary Arts program is made possible through collaboration of the WVU Press, Morgantown Writers, and Arts Monongalia. The WVU Press is the official press of West Virginia University, publishing a range of WV book titles. Arts Monongalia is a leader in promoting the arts in Monongalia County.

|Note from the editors on Family Matters.|
|Essays in this bulletin:|
|Benjamin Percy: The story "Refresh, Refresh" was a game-changer for me, not only because of its success, but because it changed my approach to writing. Now I never hold back. I dynamite the vault and let all my treasure pour out. Every story is an "all in" story. (more)|
|J. Kevin Shushtari: Nobody can teach you, for example, how to feel compassion; you either do or you don't. Still, not a single person ever asked me why I was going to medical school. Not a single person said medicine can't be taught. (more)|
|Justin Kramon: I would group the events into "main plot" and "subplots," which helped me see the rhythm of the book, and the way that subplots work in a novel. The biggest difference between the plots of novels and those of stories was the number and complexity of subplots. (more)|
|Paola Corso: Of course, now I ask myself why I had waited so long to send it out. While I was certainly aware that story collections are more than ever a hard sell these days, I couldn't help but wonder if another part of me unconsciously wanted to honor the family secret. (more)|
