WordSpace, Dallas’s favorite non-profit literary organization, takes on a new meaning for its slogan “Get Lit” with the announcement of the biggest bookish gathering Dallas has seen in 2016. Deep Ellum Lit Hop is a well-read bar crawl experience going down in — you guessed it — Deep Ellum on July 30, 2016. Guests attending this FREE event are encouraged to wander between bookshops, art galleries, and bars to enjoy an eclectic collection of literary atmospheres!

To set up such a momentous event, Sebastian Paramo and courtney marie (coordinating hosts of Pegasus Reading Series) recruited eight local organizers of some of the liveliest literary happenings across DFW. Reading series and collectives represented include Dark Moon Poetry & Arts (Dallas), Pegasus Reading Series (Dallas), Spiderweb Salon (Denton), Art & Words (Ft. Worth), Pink Drum (Dallas), and special events hosted by Deep Vellum Books, Lauren Belmore, and Caitlin Pryor. Each host will be curating their own hour-long showcase featuring some of their
favorite writers. Merritt Tierce, Megan Peak, Kendra Greene, Paula Mendoza, Griselda Castillo, and courtney marie are among the readers that have been confirmed.
