The “PNW’s best and brightest in bars, bookstores, cafes, and more” — many of them right here on Capitol Hill — will host an annual celebration of the written word Thursday night as Lit Crawl returns for its sixth year in Seattle.
Filling venues through the night with “phases” of literary events including fiction, poetry, comics, and… pie and whiskey, it’s impossible to be part of everything. The 2018 Lit Crawl: Seattle includes two extra hours, 35+ readings, and more than 80 readers and performers. You’ll have to make a plan — and revise as you go.

A full schedule of the night’s events is below.
The annual crawl debuted in 2012 and continues thanks to funding over the years from the likes of Shunpike, King County 4Culture, and the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Culture.
