June 24, 2021

Sorry for the last-minute notice, but just learned about this free online reading at 6:00pm today, Thursday, June 24, 2021. Writers with work in the Submergence: Going Below the Surface with Orca and Salmon exhibition will present a live-on-Facebook reading of writing on the orca-salmon co/recovery theme.

Readers include Rena Priest, Christianne Balk, Sarah DeWeerdt, Sandra Noel, Orin Melvin, Jayne Marek, Alicia Hokanson, Gloria Vando, Sheila Dearden, Fredda Jaffe, Ching-In Chen, and Sophia McLain. Sophia McLain will also speak about the process of creating letterpress broadsides for the exhibition.

Submergence is the culmination of a workshop and event series co-created by Endangered Species Coalition and Creature Conserve, with support from Jack Straw Cultural Center.

You can visit the exhibition at Jack Straw Cultural Center until July 2, 2021. Schedule an appointment Monday-Friday between 10:00am-5:30pm by calling the gallery at (206) 634-0919 or emailing jsp@jackstraw.org.

reading the Raven

October 17, 2019

Raven Chronicles may have ended its run as a literary journal, but it is far from finished. Next Thursday, October 24, 2019, you can join a constable, an unkindness, or a conspiracy of ravens (all words for multitudes of such corvids) for a reading and reception for Stealing Light, A Raven Chronicles Anthology, Selected Work, 1991-1996. The evening will feature emcee Paul Hunter and readings by Bart Baxter, Alicia Hokanson, Anna Odessa Linzer, and Carletta Carrington Wilson. Find them at the Jack Straw Cultural Center starting at 7:00pm. Free.

In the ‘far from finished’ category, we should also mention that Raven Chronicles is beefing up its YouTube channel:

On our channel we have posted many readings from 2014 to the present, but in the coming months we will be updating the site to include all the readings we have videotaped in the past few years, at Jack Straw Studios, the Columbia City Gallery, and other venues. On the site now: Voices From The Margins, 6/1/19 Anna Bálint Library Reading/Talk; Stealing Light: A Raven Anthology reading at Seattle Downtown Library, 10/21/18; Bridges Not Walls: a collaborative/ bilingual presentation, 2/28/17; Jack Straw Reading, 11/18/16, from Raven’s Vol. 24, Jack Straw Writers Program, 1997-2016.
