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.

"There are millions of reasons to murder but no reason to rape." What does consent mean? What does "No" mean? If and when they have heretofore meant the same thing, how do we claw back into our own skin? Join two poets from Berkeley for a reading on "No", rape, and calculation.

Featured Artists:

Jongmin Jerome Baek is a genderqueer Korean-American writer, traveler, and engineer who studied writing at Seoul, Indiana, New Jersey, West Georgia, Berkeley, and Seattle. They would like to settle down. They wrote the indie game 6180 the moon, where the moon sets out to find the missing sun. Jerome taught philosophy of computer science at Berkeley and once at UW, and is the author of "The Poetry of Computer Science, the Computer Science of Poetry". Their poems appear in The Eclectic, Glass Mountain, and their website, jjbaek.com.

Emmanuelle Gauthier is a franco-yukoner poet, writer and wanderer. She studied psychology in Montreal, creative writing in Berkeley and the yoga sutras in Mysore, India. Many years of roaming in North America, inspired her to write about humanity’s desperate yet beautiful attempts to love. Her French poems and essays can be read in all the editions of the magazine À la Dégrise. She is the author of the collection of poems Racoon Tales and she is currently on tour to read samples of her soon to be published novel Comment conduire manuel et guérir son herpes, ( How to drive standard and cure your herpes). Emmanuelle doesn’t have wifi in her cabin in Yukon but the easiest way to follow her work is through her Facebook, Pierrot La Lune.
