Short Story Salon

Come to the Piedmont Writers' Institute first ever Short Story Salon on Saturday, July 1, at 10:30 a.m. The venue is the New Dominion Bookshop at 404 East Main Street, on the downtown mall. Along with cookies and coffee, this venue will serve up the latest on the local short story scene. Admission is free.

Writers are encouraged to bring their own work to read, or bring a
recent discovery to share with an audience of short story enthusiasts.
Readers will have a ten minute limit. Stories that are begun but not
finished at the reading will be considered for full publication on the
Piedmont Writers'’ Institute website's Short Stories Page, or writers
may bring copies to distribute at the event.

The Piedmont Writers' Institute is a Charlottesville-based
organization that provides instruction, certification, networking
information and support services to writers in Virginia and beyond. It
wants to encourage new, exciting, cutting-edge writing that reflects the
Virginia experience. It also wants to build a statewide network of
writers and groups to help emerging writers find a wider audience and
take the next steps toward publication
