Chat Salon: Sex Suspense and Sly Grog

23 October 2021 | 8:15 pm - 9:15 pm

Fancy some time to socialise at the end of the first day of our virtual conference? Then pop the Sex, Suspense & Sly Grog Chat Salon in your diary now. This titillating salon will be an open reading session of excerpts submitted by you.

Watch our bartender show you how to mix one of our period inspired cocktails or make your own. Then sit back and enjoy selected readings submitted by fellow authors. Excerpts with elements of suspense are preferred. Think unresolved sexual tension, edgy crime and gritty mystery, or the most spine-tingling of thrillers.

This chat salon will not be recorded.
