Lit Crawl Austin

Lit Crawl Austin Goes Virtual 

Lit Crawl Austin celebrates its tenth year of irreverent literary programming…and what a year! Instead of one night, Lit Crawl Austin 2020 will take place over several nights and two Sunday brunches.

Join Lit Crawl this year for Six Square’s Toasts and Topics, Chicon Street Poets, Texas Observer‘s Short Story Contest, Awst Press Presents Quiplash, Austin Bat Cave’s Story Department, Typewriter Tarot, Texas Monthly Brunch, and Literary Death Match. 

All Lit Crawl programming will take place during the weeks of November 7-November 15. As always, Lit Crawl events are intended for a mature audience, unless noted otherwise. Head over to our schedule on October 8 to register for all events. See you at Lit Crawl!
