The Lit Crawl Seattle 2015 schedule is live, and two of The Conium Review‘s editors will be reading at the event. The October 22nd Lit Crawl features free readings by over 65 authors at bars and pubs (naturally, there are bookstore, library, and other artsy venues too) throughout Seattle’s First Hill and Capitol Hill neighborhoods.
Chelsea Werner-Jatzke reads at Vermillion (1508, 11th Ave.) as part of the sports-themed “Good Sports” reading from 7:00 to 7:45pm. This event’s other readers are Jay McAleer and Matt Kelsey.
James R. Gapinski reads at The Pine Box (1600 Melrose Ave.) as part of the video game-themed “Lit Level Up” reading from 8:00 to 8:45pm. Also reading are Darren Davis, Rachel Springer, and Frances Dinger.
The full Lit Crawl Seattle schedule is available here. We hope to see some Conium readers and writers out-and-about, so don’t be shy if you dig our journal (and if you hate us, you could still heckle one of the readings).
Follow Lit Crawl Seattle on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr for additional news about the venues, readers, etc.
