To elevate your September to unimaginable heights, Literary Death Match is once again partnering with Lit Camp for our spectacular return to the Elbo Room — a night that promises majestic verbiage, belly laughs for miles and absurdity galore!
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.
