This is a salon, a gathering of writers, artists, and thinkers, engaging in conversation, sharing their work and responding to others'. I don't think we can fix each other's writing, but our responses will benefit one another. Just having an audience once a week, some feedback, and the expanded view gained from others' perspectives, often helps rekindle those embers cooling while we trudge through our day jobs. Once a week, it's good to fan the fire, know we're not alone in our aloness. I will enjoy gatherin with a group of language lovers for six weeks. OPI credit available.
