About the QUT Literary Salon

The QUT Literary Salon is a monthly student-run event that gives creative writing students the opportunity to read their work aloud to an audience. Sharing work, collaborating, and networking can be daunting tasks for writers. The Lit Salon gives students the opportunity to experience this under as little pressure as possible with a focus on bringing the university's up-and-coming writers into the local writing spotlight.
