Willie Smith
2007 Jack Straw Writers Program

Genre: Poetry

Willie Smith is deeply ashamed of being human. His work celebrates this horror. He was born and raised in the District of Colombia metropolitan area. He graduated from Reed College in 1972. Moved from Portland, Oregon, four years later to Seattle, where he has more or less existed ever since. Smith is happily married without children.

Listen to Willie's interview with 2007 curator Matt Briggs and highlights from his live reading in the Jack Straw May Reading Series.
