San Francisco, California

In our final jaunt SF-ward in 2014 we're heading back to Elbo Room, as we've assembled a knockout lineup of charmsters and charmstresses to kick off your holiday season with a jolt of levity, literature and kindness, to boot. Preorder and make us feel your pre-yuletide love.
What is Literary Death Match? 4 authors read their own work for 7 minutes or less. They're judged by 3 all-star judges who respond (often comedically) to the work before choosing 2 finalists to compete in the LDM finale, a vaguely literary game (think Pin the Mustache on Hemingway) to decide the ultimate champion.
* Scott Hutchins, Truman Capote fellow at Stanford and author of A Working Theory of Love
* Emily Epstein White, Comedian, writer, editor, and co-host of #TTFunny & @amTWiB#TWiBNation
* Tim Federle, award-winning author of Better Nate than Never and Tequila Mockingbird and former Broadway dancer
* Maisha Z. Johnson, poet, teaching artist with Streetside Stories
* Janine Kovac, executive committee member of Litquake, founding member of the Write On Mamas
* Ali Eteraz, award-winning author of Children of Dust and Falsipedies and Fibsiennes
* John Leary, short storyist found in Zoetrope, One Story and the Gettysburg Review
