Seattle City of Literature is actively pursuing its bid to join the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. A team of committed individuals from myriad disciplines has convened and begun work to make the bid a reality. Our hope is to reflect the diversity and depth of Seattle’s robust literary economy as we develop our city’s bid.
Our mission is to serve and enhance Seattle’s literary community domestically and showcase local work on the world stage. Seattle is a place where books and ideas matter. We now have the world’s attention and an opportunity to affirm Seattle’s role as one of the world’s great literary cities. Join us!
We will have more news on the team and plans moving forward in the near future. Stay tuned!
