The IAW&A Salons, the brainchild of Malachy McCourt, began in June of 2011. IAW&A novelists, poets, musicians, filmmakers, painters, and theater artists share their work at warm, friendly gatherings twice a month. (Currently these are happening online, see below for details.) The Salon thrives on participation from our members and special guests. Click here to sign up for a five- or eight-minute presentation We have a team of people who help produce the Salons, taking turns acting as Salon hosts, shooting photos, and assembling blog posts that summarize each IAW&A Salon. If you would like to be on the Salon team, or if you have questions, click here to send us an email.

We’ll be using ZOOM for the audience as well as presenters, so to attend please email us a day or two before each event.

Our events start at 7:00 pm Eastern unless otherwise noted.

In order to sign up to present your work at a future date, click here . Dates will be added to the calendar as we solidify plans for the future. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, the newsletter, and this site for updates. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we move forward.
