Sarky Arts www.Sarkyarts.com an internet relay chat server and a branch of www.BentMindProductions.com has opened chat rooms for artists. It is a free server, and open haven for artists to discuss their work, and make connections. We have rooms assigned for musicians, writers, and artists. If you enjoy open meetings with authors and book publishers, we hold live interviews periodically so you can ask advice on publishing and writing. In the near future we will be doing the same for recording artists.

We are easy to connect to and FREE, just go to www.SarkyArts.com and click the java link. The java chat will bring you to a room called ExodusNightOOC which is our out of character chat room for our medieval fantasy game on the server. We sometimes just chat there too, if the server is slow.
