621Salon is a series of events hosted by 621 Gallery the third Thursday of every month. While there are many other local scenes for literary readings, 621Salon strives to become a place for younger, upcoming writers to begin reading their own work and putting it out for the public’s ear. While our audiences continue to grow month to month, we are always looking for new writers and audience members to strengthen and expand our goal to support, promote, and encourage these new artists.
