NEXT SALON: June's Midsummer Salon

Updated: Jul 15

Tuesday 28th June, 2022, 6pm, Live and on Zoom


Now we’re past the Summer Solstice, it’s time to look forward – and backwards too.


Our June Literary Salon rejoices in Scotland’s annual joke, that the nights are fair drawing in! We’re going to have a presentation from our friends at Leamington Books, who’ve been busy with various launches. Peter Burnett will tell us what they’ve been up to, and what’s in store.

We also have an exciting announcement to make. Looking back, our first Anthology, Lost, Looking & Found was launched in August 2021, and that was quite a party. You can watch the video of it all here and buy the actual book here. Looking forwards, it’s time to begin work on our second anthology, but we need help with deciding what theme we should choose.

Last time, we invited submissions on Renaissance – little knowing that this book would be a post-corona re-birth. We’ll be inviting suggestions for a new theme at this Salon, so please come with your ideas and we’ll battle it out together: where do we go after being re-born!?

Hot on the heels of Independent Bookshop Week, we’ll be thinking of our good friends at all the Indie shops in Edinburgh, especially since they’ve been selling our lovely book.

As usual we’ll be at the Outhouse, and for those who can’t be with us in person we’ll be live-streaming the ‘formal’ section of the evening (from 7pm) so that everyone can participate.

There will be a wine reception, and plenty of time before the presentation begins. We will open the zoom at 6.45, and will welcome our guests at 7pm. Online attendees are welcome to hang around in the zoom for more informal chatter, which we can monitor.


How it works...


6.pm: Wine Reception at the Outhouse

7.35 Next Anthology: choose a theme!

7.45 Live Mingling, and Zoom chat


Tickets are available on Eventbrite – Please state which ticket type you require as numbers will be limited. We will send a zoom invitation to all attendees anyway.

All Salon Events are free. We invite a small donation (£3) for the glass of wine, or encourage people to buy us a coffee to help fund our work.


We look forward to seeing you in person or in the zoom-room!


*We acknowledge that some people prefer to attend the Zoom without video, so we invite people to use the ‘comments’ section to give input, paste relevant links, and ask questions. We encourage Salon attendees to say ‘bye’ if they so wish when departing! We will save any links from the comments to share to our mailing-list and social media, and we will not be recording the zoom.
