The final US Literary Death Match of 2014 at Largo is going to be a yuletide-riddled affair with so much merriment and levity, your wig will literally and literarily spin. Plus, it's a fundraiser for NoMore.org, making it the bestest cause. Preorder now — you buy the ticket, we'll bring the mistletoe!

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.

JUDGES:
* Scott M. Gimple, executive producer/writer for The Walking Dead and Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance
* Caitlin FitzGerald, co-star of Showtime's Masters of Sex, and writer/star of the film Like the Water
* Michaela Watkins, writer/co-creator of USA's Benched; actor on ABC's Trophy Wife; SNL alum

READERS:
* Héctor Tobar, award-winning author of The Barbarian Nurseries and Deep Down Dark
* Aisha Muharrar, writer/producer for Parks and Recreation
* Sarah Colonna, comedian/writer/Chelsea Lately regular and NYT best-selling author of Life as I Blow It
* Josh Sabarra, producer, marketing executive, and the author of the all-new Porn Again: A Memoir
