Salon events throughout the year

Our ongoing plan is to meet up every last Tuesday of the calendar month. This usually happens at the Wash bar on the mound but current restrictions mean that we are doing this online.
We often have guest writers or themes, as well as extra events, as and when it seems appropriate.
Please subscribe to our mailing list or follow up on eventbrite to keep informed on upcoming events.


Mythical March Salon From Your Home

March 30th, 2021

It is March, it’s almost spring and as the days lengthen, and the prospects of meeting in person grow, we are delighted to announce another fantastic Salon From Your Home to help us through the last days of lockdown.
March Literary Salon from Your Home

Title: Myths, Mermaids and Legends – with guests Lizzie Smith and Daniel Allison.

For March, our virtual Salon turns mythical. We welcome as our Guest Writers storyteller, Daniel Allison, and poet, Lizzie Smith. Lizzie will read from her book of poems from Indigo Dreams - Selkies and Mermaids; Daniel will present work from his new Book of Scottish Myths and Legends, ‘Finn and Fianna.’

As always, there will be a chance to talk with the writers and ask questions, and after the ‘formal’ part of the evening is over (by around 7.15) everyone is welcome to stay in the Zoom Room - or even form break-out rooms if there are many folk – to talk, share, and engage as a community.

6pm: Welcome
6.15: Introduce Daniel Allison
6.25: Interview
6.40: John to Introduce Lizzie Smith
6.45: Lizzie’s Poems
6.55: Q&A – place questions in the Chat
7.15: Formal Event ends; please stick around for drink & chat!
