We are less than a week away from Lit Crawl 2014 and SO excited! We also still need HELP! Lit Crawl is produced by a small volunteer army and we need you!
We can use any volunteers who want to come out, please do! However, we are specifically looking for people to serve the role of Crawl Liaison.
We need one Litquake liaison for each of our 101 events on the 18th. We still have about 40 slots to fill. To be a liaison, all you need to do is show up at Crawl headquarters about 45 minutes before the Crawl event starts. We will give you a packet of things to take with you to the event - a sign for the venue, maps, stickers, and a little advice on introducing the event to the Crawl-goers. Once you get to the event, you help the venue set things up if needed, make sure people know where they are, and generally just help make sure things go smoothly. Once the reading starts, sit back and enjoy! If you are comfortable saying a few words in front of a very friendly crowd, please sign up!
If you’d like to sign up for a liaison slot please email crawl@litquake.org or reach out to Travis or Lisa and we will connect you with the events which still need liaisons.
If you are interested in being a general volunteer please email Fiona Hannigan, our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@litquake.org.
Thanks in advance, your Crawl Co-producers
Lisa Church and Travis Peterson

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
RIP Robin Williams, an incredible man with an amazing acting range. http://youtu.be/R_zsMwCOoEs
