CANCELED – March 17th Erotic Literary Salon – CANCELED

I regret to announce the cancelation of next week’s Salon – March 17th. I feel the need to do my part in containing and keeping the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from spreading too quickly. I discussed my thoughts with several long-standing members of the Salon community, and it was agreed this was the best course of action.

I am considering a temporary on-line Salon via a meeting site, such as Zoom. At this point I’m in the research stage. I would appreciate any suggestions on how best to proceed. You can contact me at: pcsalons@gmail.com

Many thanks for supporting the Salon in its 12th year of creating a “A Verbal Sanctuary for Sexual Expression” – Several pieces from “Sensexual: A Unique Anthology” can be found on the Salon’s website: http://theeroticsalon.com/excerpts/.

Please visit the website regularly, to be kept abreast of any news regarding the on-line and future Salons. I will also keep you updated via the newsletter.

Wash hands, keep hydrated, stock up on some good erotica if you are hibernating as I am.
