The Authors’ Salon

A salon is a gathering of people under the roof of an inspiring host, held partly to amuse one another and partly to refine the taste and increase the knowledge of the participants through conversation.

You will find them in Synergy 5, renamed The Authors’ Salon.

The Authors’ Alley

Authors’ Alley (Convene Lobby) is unique to Clockwork Alchemy and among genre conventions. Here, published authors are given an opportunity to present and sell their work directly to the fans. The fans have a chance to meet their favorite authors and discover new ones.
