Jack Straw Group Reading
Each year twelve writers/writing teams are selected by a curator (this year, Daemond Arrindell) for Jack Straw Writers, a program featuring voice and presentation training, in-studio interviews, public readings, a published anthology, and podcasts. Live readings are recorded, and selected portions are produced for podcasts and radio broadcast. To date, the Jack Straw Writers Program has included more than 200 Pacific Northwest writers who represent a diverse range of literary genres and tonight you’ll meet a selection of this year’s writers. Kamari Bright, Corbin Louis, Sarah Maria Medina, and Dujie Tahat will read new work created through their residency and Claudia Castro Luna will serve as M.C.
