Time Beautified Is Music – Stephen Reed Griggs

Stephen Reed Griggs‘s project for the 2023 Jack Straw Writers Program is an essay titled “How Long Should Music Last?” In this essay, Stephen muses on the legacy of recorded music in Seattle. In his conversation with curator Priscilla Long, he reflects on the first time he played music, his first time he was truly interested in writing, and his goals as a writer. “I need to invest the time and the love to establish and nurture those relationships. That’s what’s the most important thing.”

Music by Bryan Smith, produced through the Jack Straw Artist Support Program.
