This year’s Westercon will feature two poetry salons. The salon tradition has existed for centuries for people to gather and discuss great ideas and art. At Westercon, each salon will have a different topic. Bring a poem, either one of your own or a favorite by another author, to share with their fellows. The chosen themes are 1) New Horizons, after our convention’s theme, and 2) Science and Mathematics, because melding science and art is much of the purpose of conventions such as ours. Well known favorites and unknown gems are alike requested. Feel free to be imaginative in your interpretation of these themes!
If you are not inclined to public performance, that is okay. Come and listen.
