Portland's Lit Crawl and the Year of the Clown
Literary Arts is an organization that's been nurturing talent in Portland, Oregon, for over 30 years. Its big annual event, Wordstock, was November 11, 2017, and the night before was the Lit Crawl. I checked out the local talent, as well as what our Portlandia-inspired reputation has brought in from across the nation. The next day, I checked out X-Dog's 26th annual Kevin's Cup.
