Jack Straw Cultural Center is now accepting applications for the 27th year of the Jack Straw Writers Program. To date, the program has included more than 300 writers from the Pacific Northwest and beyond who represent a diverse range of literary genres. Each year, an invited curator selects 12 participants. The 2023 Curator is Priscilla Long

The purpose of the Jack Straw Writers Program is to introduce writers to the medium of recorded audio; to develop their presentation skills for both live and recorded readings; to encourage the creation of new literary work; to present the writers and their work in live readings, in an anthology, on the web, and on the radio; and to build community among writers.
