join the board

January 18, 2023

In 2017, Seattle was designated a UNESCO City of Literature. Seattle City of Literature is a nonprofit organization that was founded in the run-up to that designation and helps manage the designation, including local programming and relationship-building with other Cities of Literature and Creative Cities around the world.

Seattle City of Literature builds relationships and community partnerships to help creative potential meet opportunity. We connect and strengthen the local and global storytelling ecosystem and center stories rooted in traditionally marginalized communities. In our work, we integrate UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to foster an exchange of knowledge, resources, and lived experience.

Seattle City of Literature is currently adding five at-large seats to its board of directors. This is a volunteer, one-year position that will help guide Seattle’s UNESCO City of Literature designation. If you live in Seattle, support the goals of Seattle City of Literature, and would like to be considered for one of these positions, read and complete the Seattle City of Literature Community Seats Application (a Google form) by Sunday, January 31, 2023.
