writers' salon

On the third Thursday of each month at 7:30pm, CANO offers The Writers Salon.

Switching to a Zoom event during the pandemic, the evening still begins with an open mic and encourages guests to read personal works. The casual & supportive atmosphere is perfect for beginners, as well as experienced writers, to share their writing with the audience. (We ask that people register for a 5-minute open mic reading spot in advance during COVID times: writers-salon@CANOneonta.org.)

The open mic reading is followed by a presentation from a featured published author, who gives a reading of their work and often finishes with Q& A. The Writers Salons are free & open to the public. When we meet in person, light refreshments are offered. For now, you may want to settle in with a cup of tea or a favorite beverage while listening online.

Some previous authors include Alice Lichtenstein, Daniel Payne, Tom Travisano, Gary Koutnik & Mike Tamburrino, Pam Strother, Harry Barnes, Jim Louden, George Hovis, Brent Delanoy, Carol Ohmart Behan, Cheryl Petersen, Mona Sen, Leslie T. Sharpe, Jo Mish, Robert Bensen, Kirby Olson, Deborah Blake, Michael Blaine, Austin Bunn, Libby Cudmore, Jennifer R. Donohue, the Oneonta Freewriters, Ginnah Howard, Adrienne Martini, April L. Ford, Jim Mullen, Marly Youmans, Joshua Palmatier (aka Benjamin Tate), Gustavo Arango, Maya Chinchilla, Shannon Delaney, Chuck D’Imperio, David Greenspan, Sylvia Jorrin, Meredith Kaminek, David Mills, Thomas Sears, Swamiji Tirtha, Josh VanBrakle, Lisa Wujnovich, and the Smithy Writers’ Circle.
