We are the Edinburgh Literary Salon. Based in Scotland's vibrant and historical capital city, we stage a free and inclusive monthly event that is dedicated to supporting the literary community, helping to maintain a healthy and dynamic literary arts community in Scotland.
By encouraging discussion, connection, and collaboration between creative people, the Salon provides a meeting point for those in the literary industries, from Edinburgh and beyond, to gather, socialise and exchange ideas and information. We aim to form and maintain connections to other literary organisations and alert our members to relevant information and opportunities.
Join us in celebrating writers, readers, publishers, booksellers, and festivals, and engaging with our creative city.
A Monthly Gathering of Creative Minds
Salon events generally occur on the last Tuesday of every calendar month, and currently take place in The Outhouse in Edinburgh's New Town. We offer a hybrid format, so you can also attend online via Zoom.
Come along to meet fellow members of the literary community, hear from writers, publishers and other industry professionals, and perhaps make a few connections of your own.

Anthologies & Projects
An Inspiring Collection
We have always been passionate about sharing the talent of our literary city. Besides our monthly events, we also engage in producing printed work.
Our first anthology, Lost, Looking & Found, was an incredible project, bringing together both emerging and established writers from Edinburgh and beyond. The book was a remarkable celebration of different genres and voices, all centred around the theme of 'Renaissance.'
We look forward to more exciting projects like this in the future – watch this space!
