Jack Straw Cultural Center is now accepting applications for its artist residency series. Curator Kathleen Flenniken will choose a group of local writers who are eager to learn how to present their work orally — as public speakers and as audio recording performers. If you've ever thought about improving your reading skills, you should apply to this program.
And for the first time in a while, Jack Straw is hosting two workshops to discuss the artist residency program and to help artists with their applications. The 2018 curator, Daemond Arrindell, will host a workshop on Sunday, September 16th at 11 am. And Flenniken will host a workshop on Saturday, October 6th at 2 pm.

Hooray for great Seattle poet and Seattle Review of Books contributor EJ Koh!
If you'd like to support the arts in Seattle and get paid for it, Seattle Arts & Lectures is hiring a marketing coordinator!
I learned a lot by reading this Crosscut piece by Sarah E. Myhre on "himpathy," accused sexual assaulter Dave Meinert, and Dan Savage.
