Literary Death Match | Los Angeles

  • Largo at the Coronet Theater 366 North La Cienega Boulevard Los Angeles, CA, 90048 United States (map)

Los Angeles

October 11 (at Largo)


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.
