Literary Death Match says
When: Show at 7:30pm sharp; doors at 7pm; afterparty after!

We're spending early April in the glorious Lone Star State, which signals our return to Dallas — five years after our debut there! We're teaming with the masterminds at Deep Vellum for a night at The Texas Theatre that will be well worth the wait. Lit brilliance, hijinks, oddity, hilarity and so much in between await. Preorder now!

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: Ben Fountain, award-winning author of Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk and Brief Encounters with Che Guevara
Performance: Alice Laussade, James Beard Award-winner for Humor and CEO of Meat Fight
Intangibles: Tim Rogers, Editor of D Magazine and National Magazine Award-winning journalist

READERS:
* Merritt Tierce, author of Love Me Back and a 2013 National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 Author
* Joaquin Zihuatanejo, a poet, spoken word artist featured on Def Poetry Jam and award-winning teacher
* J. Suzanne Frank, author of Laws of Migration and many others, and director of The Writer's Path at SMU
* Will Clarke, author of The Worthy: A Ghost's Story and Lord Vishnu's Love Handles

Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga
