It is happening again. Lit Crawl Seattle 2018, baby. Over 35 readings. Over 20 venues. Over one hundred million writers. Do you want to go? Of course you don't. But you never want to go to anything. Then you wind up going and you remember how much you actually like going to things. So you have to go! Plus, if you listen to the scientists, this might be one of the last Lit Crawls that isn't held in a MadMax Thunderdome run by Chaos Bezos.
But besides all that, this Lit Crawl line-up looks great! People will drink, discover new authors, rediscover old ones, and, above all, be reminded that writing is a solitary practice that brings us all closer together. The trouble, as always, is trying to decide which path to take. You can't split yourself into three dozen pieces and go to everything. But that's why I'm here. Below I've listed paths for people who love poetry, prose, and politics. There's also a path for people who just want to party. And do we have an interactive map? Of course we have an interactive map. We fucking love maps.
