To celebrate our 10th-ever Twin Cities episode we're heading to St. Paul's Amsterdam Bar & Hall and teaming with some of the cities lit-finest (Paper Darts, Revolver & The Tangential), for what promises to be one of the most electric nights in Minnesota literary-comedic history! Don't miss it!
The night will feature four writers reading their own wonderful tales 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 and make your heart pound. Plus! Pre-show rowdiness with The Choosatron, a scavanger hunt, table games, and more!
