Last year, during the 2019 RVA Lit Crawl, Cheryl Pallant passed the torch to me, and I became the new director of this amazing organization she created. I immediately asked Lindsay Chudzik and John Schengber to help me lead the Lit Crawl into the next decade (they said yes!) and we became a team. Since then, we’ve been planning the 2020 event, and we’re excited to start sharing what we have in store for you.

The 2020 RVA Lit Walk will take place in the Richmond Arts District April 24-26.
We heart Carytown, but the new team is branching out and trying new venues for the event. Holding readings in art galleries will expose our audience not only to writers, but to local artists, too. We hope you’ll enjoy this change of scenery!

Name Change
You probably noticed that we changed the event’s name from “Lit Crawl” to “Lit Walk.” In case you’re wondering, we had to do this for legal reasons.

How do I participate as a reader?
This year we are looking for authors to curate panels of readers (this is similar to how Lit Walk worked in the past, but there are some changes to how this works). We have a number of contemporary topics we’re looking to explore through the Lit Walk readings. Please check out the section on participating for more information, and contact us if you are interested in curating a group of readers. If you just want to read and not curate, you can contact us about that, too.

How do I attend Lit Walk readings?
To attend Lit Walk readings, check out our authors, panels, venues, and the schedule. We are just getting started filling out the schedule and will add more information as we have it.

Thank you for your patience.
We appreciate all of the Lit Walk fans for sticking with us through this “staff” change and through the changes we are making to the organization overall. We look forward to seeing how the Lit Walk will evolve as we move forward, and to connecting readers and writers and the Richmond Community.
