The LitChat Literary Salon is a revolutionary bridge between the virtual and the actual, a live literary discussion and virtual writers’ workshop in partnership with The Betsy Hotel-South Beach and LitChat. The Literary Salon series features live readings and presentations from respected authors and literary arts leaders, plus Twitter sessions with writers, editors and agents. The two-day writing, reading and literary discussion series will happen September 18-19, 2012.

On Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons during the Literary Salon series, LitChat founder, Carolyn Burns Bass, will moderate a writer’s workshop through Twitter. Participants can expect exceptional writing tips and publishing information from a growing list of respected authors who will tweet through a dedicated hashtag: #LitChatBetsy.

Later each evening, a live Literary Salon will be held in The Betsy’s B-Bar with notable authors and publishing professionals presenting and discussing their work.

The Betsy Hotel has established a special room rate of $179 (plus taxes) and has graciously waved the resort fee for all of those who wish to stay at the hotel throughout the two-day Literary Salon series. To make your reservation, go directly to The Betsy’s reservation website and select your room.

For those who take advantage of The Betsy’s special rates, we will have a Sunday night cocktail reception (no host bar) on the hotel’s spectacular Rooftop Bar. Additional dining opportunities will also be available at the hotel’s award-winning BLT Steak, including lunch and dinner prix fixe selections.

The Literary Salon will be held in The Betsy’s B-Bar, where mixology meets audiovisual excellence for comfort and community. Food and beverages will be available for purchase during the series.

The Betsy Hotel is South Beach’s most literary boutique hotel. In April 2012 the hotel opened its Writing Room, where authors are invited to visit as Writers in Residence while working on new material.
