Show at 7:00pm SHARP; doors at 6:30pm; afterdrinks after!

After a year+ away, Literary Death Match returns to the brilliant Twin Cities for our annual AWP spectacular at Nomad World Pub for an electric night of literature, comedy, mayhem, genius, imbibing, laughter, joy and general good cheer. This one's not to be missed — let's sell it out 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: Benjamin Percy, award-winning author of The Dead Lands and The Wilding
*Performance: P.O.S., hip-hop artist and founding member of the Doomtree collective
*Intangibles: Susan Orlean, New Yorker staff writer and author of the Orchid Thief

READERS:
* Roxane Gay, author of Ayiti, An Untamed State, Bad Feminist and appeared in Best American Short Stories
* Claire Vaye Watkins, multi-award-winning author of Battleborn (Story Prize, Dylan Thomas Prize & more)
* Jeffery Renard Allen, multi-award winning author of Song of the Shank and Holding Pattern
* Mark Doten, author of The Infernal, writer of the libretto for The Source & lit fiction editor at Soho Press

Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga
