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.

Meet the people making waves in the cannabis industry as they honor the plant that so many creatives turn to for inspiration. Come celebrate the other legal way to get lit in Washington and listen to spoken word by two canna-friendly poets, Nadia Imafidon and Leila Marie Ali. Hosted by Ahnya Smith, founder of the Colored Cannabis Collective.

Featured Artists

Born into an Army family, Ahnya Smith moved to Seattle in 2017 from Virginia and has found her place in the cannabis industry here in the Emerald City. The founder and president of the Colored Cannabis Collective, Ahnya spends a lot of her time brainstorming community service ideas, ways to build a stronger cannabis community, and how to give POC in cannabis their fair shot in the industry while righting the wrongs of the War on Drugs. With her family originally from New Orleans, Ahnya is no stranger to a good time and when she’s not focused on CCC she can be found on the stage performing in drag as Skarlet Dior Black.

Leila Marie Ali uses her middle name to increase her SEO rating as most confuse her with Muhammad Ali's daughter. Leila Marie Ali would have you all know that she is the lover not the fighter. This DC native is from the original Washington but Seattle has been home for the last 5+ years. By day she runs The Herban Adventure Tour, Seattle's best and only cannabis culture tour which offers a seed to sale or history to the future type of experience exploring the 502 industry in the state of Washington. By night she performs historical or political spoken word around the city most recently featured on the show Sound Effects on KNKQ. Leila is currently writing a musical about women around the turn of the 20th century. Think Hamilton meets Drunk History due to be released early next year

Nadia Imafidon is an unapologetic Nigerian-American spoken word poet who stays hustling. She volunteers at the King County Juvenile Detention Center where she writes poetry with youth, and co-hosts The Table Podcast, where she and Isaac Sanders have table conversations about the black, queer, and femme experience living in the PNW. She believes in the power of language and storytelling to build community and inspire healing and change.
