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.

International Girl Gang Tales is about womxn/femmes of color who grew up watching their parents send money via Western Union to family in the homeland and making long distance calls with international calling cards. For girls who switch between codes and languages, girls who message their family on WhatsApp. Girls who were told they had difficult names to pronounce. Girls who collect stamps in their passport, girls who dream of a faraway (or nearby) land, still have foreign currency in their wallets. Girls who have had international flings, keep coming home to something nowhere else has. Indigenous girls reppin their tribe and their clan, their corner of the earth. International Girl Gang tales are many different stories from everywhere.
