After too many moons away, Literary Death Match returns to the glories of Largo at the Coronet for a whizbang affair featuring some absolute greats. You'll see literary stylings, comedic wizardry, a competitive flash-finish. Don't miss it!
What is Literary Death Match? We feature four writers who read their own work for seven minutes or less, who are then judged by three all-star judges. They select two finalists to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game to decide the ultimate winner.
