Literary Death Match on March 3/3...

To celebrate our 9th birthday, we're putting on a show at Largo at the Coronet with enough award-winning talent to take us another nine years — all the way to 2024! Come witness the high highs, the still pretty high lows and all the dramatic turns (mostly of phrase) in between! Preorder now, as this one's going to sell out (hopefully in a jiff)!

What is Literary Death Match? Four writers read their own work for seven minutes or less, and are then judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists are chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game to decide the ultimate winner.

JUDGES:

* Literary Merit: Jason Reitman, award-winning writer/director of Up in the Air, Juno and Labor Day
* Performance: Mae Whitman, award-winning actress from The Duff, Parenthood and Arrested Development
* Intangibles: Aisling Bea, award-winning actress & 2014 British Comedy Award for Best Female TV Comedian
* Super-Intangibles: Rhys Darby, comedian and actor from Flight of the Conchords & Netflix's Short Poppies

READERS:
* Baratunde Thurston, best-selling author (How to Be Black), co-host (TakePart Live), CEO (Cultivated Wit)
* Kseniya Melnik, author of the Dylan Thomas Prize and Frank O'Connor Award-nominated Snow in May
* Carson Mell, writer for HBO's Silicon Valley and Eastbound & Down, author of Saguaro
* M.G. Lord, award-winning author of Forever Barbie, Astro Turf and The Accidental Feminist
