The Salon launches Tuesday 7th September

Thomas Tosh is launching a new evening gathering celebrating great local writing here in Dumfriesshire.

The Salon will be held on occasional Tuesdays and opens with a clutch of award-winning poets on September 7th at 7.30pm.

Hugh McMillan, Vivien Jones and JoAnne McKay will be reading from their latest works.

Vivien Jones will recite from her newly published collection of poetry, About Time, Too. She’s fresh from the success of winning the 2010 Poetry London Prize last month.

JoAnne McKay will be reading from her new work, Venti. JoAnne is part of a growing band of Dumfriesshire-based poets creating illustrated and hand-sewn pamphlets. Venti is a booklet that can be seen as a piece of art in itself.

Hugh McMillan will be bringing his award winning poems and his performance skills to underpin what will be a great evening.

Entry is free. Coffee, tea, cake and refreshments will be available. The Salon will be held at Thomas Tosh in the Old Parish Hall, 19 East Morton Street, Thornhill, Dumfries and Galloway. DG3 5LZ. Tel: 01848 331 553
