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.

In past years, we’ve hosted everyone from former National Book Award finalist Jess Walter to Lindy West. Throughout the years, we have hosted readings by VIDA, Tin House, critically-acclaimed artists such as Eileen Myles and Melissa Febos, and 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: 5-5:45pm, 6-6:45pm, 7-7:45pm, 8-8:45pm, and 9-9:45pm, plus literary shenanigans at the after party at 10pm.

This year, you’ll get to take in 35+ readings and 80+ readers and performers on this year’s line up!
Save the date: Thursday, October 24th, 2019.

What It’s All About:
For one night only, Lit Crawl takes over Capitol Hill for Seattle’s biggest and booziest literary party. A pub crawl featuring readings, performances and even cooking demonstrations, Lit Crawl is your interactive guide to Seattle’s vast, crazy, and loving literary scene.

This year promises a wide range of shows from traditional readings to theatrical performances, cooking performances, and panels. Not just for adults, youth-friendly readings are available to highlight our exciting new talent. Finally, join your fellow crawlers for the after party at Hugo House (starting at 10 p.m.). There you can buy a book from your favorite author, pick up some last-minute swag and send off Lit Crawl 2019 with one last toast.

According to Managing Director, Jekeva Philips: “This year's crawl is richer and spookier than ever.”
