Lit Crawl 2021 | Jack Straw Reading

Join us Sunday, October 17th, at 7pm for a Jack Straw reading!

“The purpose of the Jack Straw Writers Program is to introduce writers to the medium of recorded audio; to develop their presentation skills for both live and recorded readings; to encourage the creation of new literary work…”

So basically perfect for Lit Crawl. We love bringing new poets and writers to the stage! Join us for a reading with this year’s Jack Straw writers: C. R. Glasgow, José Luis Montero, Greg November, and Michael Overa. Hosted by Jack Straw Writers Program Curator E. J. Koh.

About Lit Crawl 2021

Now in its ninth year, Lit Crawl Seattle 2021 will be a detour from our normal route. We will be partnering with one venue only, our friends at Hugo House, to deliver to you an awesome night of fiction and poetry. Hopefully in 2022 we will return to taking over the whole town!

Join us Sunday, October 17th from 5-8pm for an evening of stellar readings. We will be having back some old favorites like the Youth Poet Laureates and Jack Straw, as well as new friends. Stay tuned for more details, including ticket links!

Lit Crawl is powered by fiscal sponsor Shunpike and is a grant recipient of 4Culture and City of Seattle Office of Arts & Culture.

Lit Crawl Seattle ​is a project of the Litquake Foundation with affiliated Lit Crawls in San Francisco, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Austin, Los Angeles, Iowa City, Seattle, London, Helsinki, Portland, Chicago, Denver, and Cheltenham.
