Events

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.

November’s Literary Salon – Book Week Scotland Edition

Tuesday the 16th of November, 6pm, Live, and on Zoom
Blackwell’s Bookshop, 53-62 South Bridge, Edinburgh, EH1 1YS 

For our Book Week Scotland Edition, we will be celebrating our first ever anthology, Lost, Looking & Found, which was published this August, in collaboration with the Edinburgh Napier University MSc Publishing course. 

This will be a great way to celebrate the expansion of our Literary Salon over the past year, and to continue our exciting partnership with Napier University. One of the anthology contributors, Mary Paulson Ellis, will be our Special Guest Author, and we will welcome other writers, illustrators, students, and supporters who helped bring this project to fruition. 

For those who cannot attend in person, we will broadcast a live-stream of the formal section of the event on zoom.

As always, our Salon begins with a wine reception and mingling, followed by a formal introduction. There will be readings from the Anthology, an interview, and a Q&A session. After the formal part of the evening, people may buy books, speak with contributors, and continue to mingle (or zoom) until 8pm.

If you’d like to pre-order a copy of the Anthology, visit our website and click the ‘collect at a Salon’ option. Or buy copies on the night – plus books by our Guest!
