It is required to attend at least one Salon prior to reading, this is not your typical open mic. I make exceptions occasionally for people traveling from a major distance.
When you attend the Salon there is a sheet at the entrance, where you can sign-up to read that evening.
If you have not been called to read, your name will be placed at the top of the list for the following month.
Important – Practice reading aloud prior to attending the Salon, there is a 5 minute time limit, which is enforced.
2 1/2 pages typed double spaces, 1 1/4 pages typed single space, or approximately 500-600 word count (Depends on how fast you read and how often you pause.).
All readers must offer a backstory, the story behind your piece, either to be given before or after the reading. The backstory is what makes the Salon readings most unique. (One minute or less, not included in the 5 minute reading.)
Anyone over the age of 21 is welcome to read.
