The Kerouac Project is in its 17th year of service as a grassroots non-profit organization that has incubated the careers of writers and artists, inspired creativity and built community in Central Florida in the spirit of Jack Kerouac’s Legacy. A fully volunteer run organization, The Kerouac Project’s goal is to connect writers with new skills and experiences and expose audiences to the craft. Serving the Greater Orlando Community through quarterly literary readings, Writing Workshops, and awareness events as well as the writers-in-residence program. The Kerouac Project inspires where there is no interest, encourages where there is no confidence and guides where there is limited knowledge to build the competencies of all levels of writers.
In honor of the Legacy of Jack Kerouac the Kerouac Project supports writers through Residency and other programming that seek to enrich the Greater Orlando community.
The Kerouac Project’s vision is to honor the spirit of the Beat Generation by promoting artistic exploration and showcase works of art across genre and cultures emanating from the inspiration of the environment in which Jack Kerouac worked.
