The Stone Fox says
After an electric October debut, Literary Death Match is teaming with The Porch Writers' Collective for our return to Nashville — the front-runner for our City of the Year in 2015! — for a madcap event at The Stone Fox that will wow, awe, confuse and titillate. 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: Andrew Maraniss, author of Strong Inside (about the first black SEC basketball player)
Performance: Caitlin Rose, country singer and mind behind the albums The Stand-In and Own Side Now
Intangibles: Mary Laura Philpott, editor of Parnassus' Musing blog & producer of I Miss You When I Blink

READERS:
* Adam Ross, author of Mr. Peanut and Ladies and Gentleman
* Gary McDowell, multi-award winning poet and author of Weeping at a Stranger's Funeral
* Melanie Vare, comedy writer, comedian, and creator/host of That Time of the Month
* Tiana Clark, poet who's appeared in Sisterhood, Southern Voices: Volume 8 & The Southwestern Review

Plus, a live musical opening by Canadian solo artist Jessica Beach!

Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga
