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.

Georgia Stewart McDade, a Louisiana native who has lived in Seattle more than half her life, loves reading and writing.  As a youngster she wrote and produced plays for her siblings and neighbors and collaborated with church youth to write plays for special occasions.  Earning a Bachelor of Arts from Southern University, Master of Arts from Atlanta University, and Ph. D. from University of Washington, the English major spent more than thirty years teaching at Tacoma Community College but also found time to teach at Seattle University, the University of Washington, Lakeside School, Renton Technical College, and Zion Preparatory Academy.  As a charter member of the African-American Writers’ Alliance (AAWA), McDade began reading her stories in public in 1991.  She credits AAWA with making her regularly write poetry.  For a number of years she has written poems inspired by art at such sites as Gallery 110, Seattle Art Museum, and Columbia City Gallery.  She wrote for Pacific Newspapers, especially the South District Journal.  Convinced all of us can learn to write well, McDade conducts and participates in a variety of writing workshops.  “Good writing can force us to think and think critically; we can theorize, organize, analyze, and synthesize better,” says she.  A prolific writer, she has works in AAWA anthologies I Wonder as I Wander, Gifted Voices, Words? Words! Words, and Threads.   Her works include Travel Tips for Dream Trips, questions and answers about her six-month, solo trip around the world; Outside the Cave, a collection of poetry; and numerous essays, stories, and poems.  This year a second collection of poems and a collection of stories and essays will be published.  She volunteers at community radio station KBCS (91.3 FM) and Boys and Girls Club.  Among her several writing projects are the biography of her high school principal and journals kept during her
