Get drunk . . . on words!

Think of Lit Crawl Seattle as a free cool reading at your favorite bar, times about 30. For one beautiful and awesomely weird night, over 80 Pacific Northwest readers and artists fill Capitol and First Hill bars with stories ranging from oyster foraging to the Jesus movement, photography of Seattle outcasts and innocents, to odes to football and salt.

We’ve hosted everyone from former National Book Award finalist Jess Walter to Lindy West, organizations from VIDA to Tin House, and so much more, at venues throughout the neighborhood—including Hugo House, Vermilion, Capitol Cider, Capitol Hill Library, and Elliott Bay Book Company.

In 2019, we’ll continue our tradition of 5 phases of programming: 6-6:45pm, 7-7:45pm, 8-8:45pm, and 9-9:45pm, plus literary shenanigans at the after party at 10pm.

That’s two extra hours to take in more of the 35+ readings and 80+ readers and performers on this year’s line up! Save the date: Thursday, October 24th, 2019.Lit Crawl Seattle receives fiscal sponsorship from Shunpike, grants from 4Culture and the City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture. Sponsors include Seattle Met, Crosscut, Covenant Shores, and City Arts magazine.
