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.
To reserve a space to read at the Salon, first read the guidelines below then sign-up to read via email, offer the name you wish to use when reading. If you are a first time reader please make this known, as you know we like to give you special attention. PCSalons@gmail.com
When you attend the Salon there is a sheet at the entrance, where you can sign-up to read for the following month.
If you have been placed on wait list -
All attendees at the Salon will be allowed to sign up only for the following month. Individuals who have been placed on a wait list, but are not called to read, get to sign up to read for any future month. You must attend the Salon if you are on the wait list in order for advanced sign up.
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.
