About Us


The Highland Literary Salon was founded in October 2009 by a group of Highland writers who were keen to network with others in the area. Thanks to support from the Inverness Common Good Fund, the Glen Mhor Hotel, Scottish Book Trust and Moniack Mhor Writers Center, we are able to provide a casual, congenial place to network, discuss works with published authors, and showcase our own work.

Our events feature authors, publishers, agents, and others in the publishing realm who come along to discuss their work and answer your questions.

Salons are held on various Tuesdays every month (see events list below) at the Glen Mhor hotel in Inverness, a map link on each event shows the location.

Everyone is welcome! If you've never been to one of our salons but would like to attend, please just come along - there is absolutely NO need to book or ask permission - we'll be delighted to welcome you!

The only things which need to be booked ahead of time are our fantastic workshops. As the Highland Literary Salon is now a membership organisation, in order to benefit from the great deal which our workshops represent, you have to join to attend, but this can be done easily online. Just have a look at the details of the salon in which your desired workshop is being held, and you'll be able to book (and join as a member) from there.
