About Us

Founded in 1987, Seattle Arts & Lectures (SAL) has a staff of nine, a seventeen-member Board of Directors, and an annual budget of about $2 million. SAL champions the literary arts by engaging and inspiring readers and writers of all generations in the greater Puget Sound region, and fulfills its mission through two major program areas: SAL’s public events, which bring the leading writers and thinkers of our times to inform, challenge, delight, and inspire richly diverse Seattle audiences through the Literary Arts, Poetry, Women You Need to Know, Sherman Alexie Loves, and Hinge series, and the Writers in the Schools (WITS) program, which matches talented professional writers with local K-12 public schools and Seattle Children’s Hospital for year-long residencies that build students’ self-confidence and essential writing skills as they discover the power of their voice through creative writing. Last year more than 29,000 people in the Puget Sound region participated in SAL events and programs.
