Word Salon

Thu May 11

Word Salon

Celebrating creativity, words, writing, storytelling, memory, curiosity, music, photography, books…and our wonderful community!

SIGHTXSOUND “Found Subjects”
Share your knowledge, perspective, thoughts, and insights using a mix of spoken word and photos. Limited to 20 ‘slides’, with a strict time of 20 seconds per photo. Video submissions may also be considered.

POETRY MATTERS “It’s nothing and everything” Read a poem! Yours or someone else’s.

STUBBY PENCILS “If you wrote it, you can read it” Read your work – whatever it is – a story, essay, thought, or an old or imagined letter to your 6th grade crush!

BOOK MARK “Because books always leave a mark” Share a passage from a book that has inspired you, altered your perspective, or impacted you in some way.

PERFORMANCE “Words & Movement” A dramatic read. A theatrical excerpt. You tell us your idea and we’ll go from there. MUSIC “Lyrical love!” Music has a subtle way of inspiring a love of words. Your own lyrics or someone else’s, we just want to hear you. Looking for a 15-20 minute set as people are arriving; or a 10 minute intermission set.

Interested in participating in future Word Salons? They run quarterly: May, August, November & February.
