What is North West Literary Salon?

When we talk about a literary salon, people have different ideas about what we mean. To some it's writers reading drafts of their own work, to others it's readers reading someone else's work. To us, it's neither. It's living authors telling stories and dramatically reading their work to engage an audience followed by questions, answers, food and music.

North West Literary Salon is a new initiative bringing established and emerging writers with a local connection together with the public for dramatic readings (storytelling) and conversation. After the authors read, Naomi and I chair a lively discussion and invite the audience to participate. Food is provided by a local caterer and a local musician will provide music. All for free. 

That's right.

Free. 

The evening lasts an hour. The events will be held in Lancaster Library. What do you need to bring? Bring your thirst for story, your engaging wit and your curiosity.  

The salon is an evening engaging with story, community and discussion brought about by our love of a good story told well.

The first event is May 8 and features Jenn Ashworth and Carys Bray with music by Lancaster University's Rosa Francesca. It will be in the Community History Room at Lancaster Library (in town). The event is open to the public. 

Supported by donations from alumni and friends of the University, a grant from Public Engagement with Research and Grad College.
Order tickets via Lancaster University's online store or here.
