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.

Robin Hall is a 18 year old college student at Bellevue College. She is excited to share her book with the world, and hopes that it will inspire ideas, and deepen connections. Robin is a passionate artist, and is looking forward to creating more with her project.

Azure Savage is a high school senior, and this past summer he finished and self-published his first book “You Failed Us: students of color talk Seattle schools.” The book explores the racism within schools from the perspective of students of color. Azure uses his own experiences and those of his peers to illustrate the systematic issues at hand. He aims to center the voices of marginalized students throughout the push for equity in schools.
