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.

IAW&A Salons are Going Online

Our next online Salon will be on Tuesday, June 9th. We’ll be using Zoom for the audience as well as presenters, so to attend send an email for the link. Our second June Salon will be on Tuesday the 23rd and will be our LGBTQ+ themed event, hosted by Miranda Stinson.

In order to sign up to present your work at a future date, click here. Our June Salons are almost full, but dates over the summer are available. We are also working on having at least one event in an afternoon to include presenters who are in Ireland. 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 space for updates. Thanks for your patience and understanding as we move forward.
