Pinweight – Anis Gisele

2016 Jack Straw Writer Anis Gisele‘s project for the Writers Program is Pinweight, a young adult novel inspired by her own experience. She talks to program curator Karen Finneyfrock about her connection to the book’s main character, finding herself as a writer in the slam poetry scene, and surviving as an artist in a rapidly changing city.

Music by Seattle Jazz Composers Ensemble, produced as part of the Jack Straw Artist Support Program.
