To kick off our May tour that will take us across the planet, we'll first stop in magical Minneapolis (LDM's 2011 City of the Year!). To celebrate LDM's return to our spiritual midwest home, we'll be at Nomad World Pub with a lineup that'll wow your brain, and set you alongside comedy- and lit-loving wonderfuls galore. Be there or risk insults of your squaredom.
The wild night will feature four writers reading their own work for seven minutes or less, judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists will be chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game that will steal your affection/attention.
