After too many moons away, the award-winning, crowd-pleasing wonder of Literary Death Match returns to Largo for a whizbang affair featuring some absolute greats. You'll see literary stylings, comedic wizardry, a competitive flash-finish. Come one, come all.

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.

JUDGES:
Literary Merit: Kenya Barris, award-winning comedy writer, Emmy-nominated creator of ABC's Black-ish
Performance: Nicole Byer, Shorty Award-winning comedian, star of MTV's Loosely Exactly Nicole
Intangibles: Rob Huebel, writer/actor featured in Transparent, Children's Hospital and Human Giant
Super-Intangibles: Greg Proops, actor, writer and comedian featured on Whose Line is it Anyway? and host of The Smartest Man in the World podcast

READERS:
Round 1
* Moby, platinum record-making musician, DJ, photographer and author or Porcelain: A Memoir
* Meliza Bañales, award-winning writer, slam poet & author of Life is Wonderful, People Are Terrific
Round 2
* Rich Ferguson, poet, performer and author of the novel New Jersey Me
