Welcome to the Salon of Shame!

We invite you to join us as we drink and exploit our younger selves for your entertainment! The idea is simple: folks read on stage from their worst adolescent writing, including middle school diaries, high school poetry, unsent letters, etc.

Founded in 2005, the Salon is cathartic for readers and hilarious for the rest of us. Everybody wins when it comes to embarrassment!
