City of Literature

On the last Tuesday of every month the Edinburgh City of Literature holds a Literary Salon at The Wash Bar. This is a pub at the top of the mound - above the National Museum of Scotland. Inside, the ceiling is low and it fills quickly with dozens of local writers, published and pre-published, as they gather to talk craft. Announcements are made about upcoming literary events (here was last night),
and wine is generously poured. Our friend and local photographer, Chris Scott, records the events, but this time I got his picture.
      Most of the attendees are poets or writers of adult literature, so I love it when I find fellow children's book fans - which I do. They are quickly becoming friends.
      I have never lived somewhere so supportive of the creative arts. It is such a pleasure to participate in this event, hosted by the awesome Eleanor Pender, and others around town. Truly, being able to visit museums for free, meet up with various interest groups for free, and embrace the local writing community in this way is an amazing benefit of living in Edinburgh.
