The Salon Book Club
In the Salon book club, we read books about writing. Very meta, we know. We've read Anne Lamott, Samuel Delany, bell hooks, Amy Tan, Ursula Le Guin, Kurt Vonnegut with Suzanne McConnell, Ernest Hemingway, and Roy Peter Clark.
Rather than discuss once, we read and practice with one book over ten weeks to explore how to bring the author's insights into our own writing.
This Summer, we're getting into "The Emotional Craft of Fiction" by Donald Maass. We are meeting on these dates, in person and virtual so join however suits you.
We meet every other Sunday for a chat about how to integrate nuggets into our writing, sometimes playing with prompts. It's encouraged to stick with the group for the duration, but totally understandable if schedule changes mean missing one or two.
All members welcome, no need to sign up, just show up (and ideally read, not a requirement but helpful!)
