NEXT EVENT: June’s Celebration Salon

Tuesday the 25th of June, 2024, 7pm, Live and on Zoom 

It's officially summer, this year we've got lots to celebrate, so join us for a Salon where we'll raise a glass to everything and everyone!

June is a great month for celebrating (midsummer’s day, Pride month, launches of the Book Festival and Fringe programmes) and 2024 is a great year for celebrating (900 years of Edinburgh’s Royal Burgh Status, 120th Anniversary of McDonald Road Library, and twenty years since Edinburgh became the first UNESCO designated City of Literature – to name a few!)


We’re having a Summer Celebration Salon for June, with news from friends and regulars, a visit from the City of Literature, and a look ahead to the forthcoming festivity this year. We’ll also hear from our own Stuart Johnstone about his residency in the Writer’s Room at John Knox house.


As always, the chief purpose of Edinburgh Literary Salon is to meet and mingle and enjoy discourse among fellow literati. If anyone has news, reviews, opportunities, or celebrations to share, please let us know. We welcome any excuse to raise a glass to success and celebration! And, of course, we love to sell our wonderful books...


We encourage you to join us at The Outhouse or, if you can’t be with us in person why not drop in on zoom. We’ll gather from 6.30+ and livestream the Presentation section from 7pm, lasting for around 40 minutes.

6.30: Doors Open – drinks reception in the Function Room at the Outhouse  

6.50: Open the Zoom meeting (details are emailed to all ticket-holders)

7.00: Welcome, and Introduction

7.10: Presentation: 20 Years of City of Literature (and more!)

7.40: Further mingling and blether

It is free to register for all of our events. We invite donations for the glass of wine or encourage people to buy us a coffee to help fund our work. If you can’t afford to donate, you are still welcome. Our two anthologies are on sale here, and books will be available to purchase on the night. We look forward to seeing you in person or in the zoom-room.


Accessibility Notice


Edinburgh Literary Salon is open to all those with an interest in all aspects of Literature, whether professional or personal, and to all parts of the industry: writers, publishers, booksellers etc. All are welcome, and events have free registration. While we aim to hold some events at accessible venues, our regular salon is in an upstairs room at The Outhouse. For this reason, we aim to livestream most events. If there is a problem accessing zoom, we will do what we can to assist. We strive to ensure adequate audibility, and straightforward registration. We invite positive feedback on how we can improve, even within our limitations as a non-funded organisation. We welcome open conversation.
