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.

It seems so fitting that on the cusp of Halloween, the ghost of old Hugo House shall come upon us. In this event, Cali Kopczick, one of the many amazing people behind Where the House Was,  resurrects our beloved old house on the silver screen. Join her as she shows clips from the film and fields any questions about the making of this seminal Seattle work.  

Guest speakers include:
Cali Kopczick is a writer and editor based in Seattle, Washington. She was the editor for Chin Music Press and is the production manager and story editor of the documentary Where the House Was. Her writing is out or forthcoming with The Offing, The Birds We Piled Loosely, Bone Bouquet, and Crab Creek Review, among others.

Ryan Adams is the director of Where the House Was. Unlike the singer you might be thinking of, this Ryan K. Adams has been making films for 31 years. He studied classic experimental cinema at the Evergreen State College. Adams’s collaborations with experimental filmmaker Jon Behrens, distributed by Canyon Cinema, are shown worldwide. As a cinematographer, Ryan has shot several feature-length films, including The Oregonian (Sundance ’11) which is currently distributed by Sundance and is available via iTunes, and William Never Married, which won Best Cinematography at the 2010 Downtown Film Festival Los Angeles. His collaborations with Seattle-based artist Susie Lee on a series of video portraits called Still Lives have been shown worldwide. Ryan created the video backdrops used in The Fisher Ensemble’s performance of Kocho at Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, NY, in 2011. In 2012, he shot the documentary Massacred for Gold, directed by Vernon Lott. In addition to his personal work, Ryan also directs music videos, industrials, political ads, and short films.
