Release for the Salon

This is the email that was sent to the patrons on the Erotic Literary Salon email list. It has many delicious treats to offer…

Hello Friends of the Philadelphia Cultural Salons,

Writing from hot, humid, sometimes sunny Florida. Escorted our very own Frances (resident nonagenarian) to her snowbird haven, and now spending a few weeks with my son. Still at work, just a different location.

I shall return just in time to host our next Salon, and a great one it will be. In celebration of Halloween, our very own gifted writer – Apathykiss will be reading an erotic horror themed, s+xy story.

***Reminder, I strongly encourage you to sign-up in advance to read, the list is filling quickly. Please check your timing at home by reading aloud prior to presenting at the Salon. email to reserve a spot.

Do you have an interesting s+x story to tell, a hot phone s+x dialogue, s+xy txt, poem, etc.? Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer, but think readers might enjoy your words, please submit them to the Erotic Literary Salon’s Anthology. Anyone can participate. You may send the call for submissions viral via your social network. The call for submissions can be located on the navigation bar of the Salon.

Stripped Stories – November 18 and 19, 10pm, at the Painted Bride:
“It’s like sharing your deepest secrets in front of a room full of your best friends.”
– Margot Leitman

Moth Grandslam champions Margot Leitman and Giulia Rozzi put a new spin on “intimate” storytelling with a night of s+x-themed stories, games and live music. A monthly hit at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in NYC and LA, Stripped Stories combines “intentionally and deliciously awkward moments” (Out Magazine) with an array of “jaw-dropping tales” (Playgirl Magazine).

Popular First Person Arts artists, former phone s+x operator and storyteller Kent Dwyer and writer Liz Spikol, tell their own tantalizing tales. The incomparable cabaret performer Johnny Showcase serenades the audience with his unique style of sensual soul tunes in a solo set. Be prepared– the audience gets into the act too with a special version of the classic party game Never Have I Ever.
