James River Writers and The Poe Museum welcome you back to the grand tradition of the literary salon —an intimate gathering centered around an inspiring host to “inform, educate, & delight.”* Each evening features discussion with an expert creative and allows for dynamic interaction among participants. Whatever your genre or art, this will be a great way to connect with like-minded writers; to learn, philosophize, & leave inspired.   

Salons are organized by topic and will be held in 2018 on the second Thursdays of March and November. There is no cover charge for these events. We welcome writer-ly types of all experience levels and readers, thinkers, and artists of every sort.
