The Literary Death Match features a mix of four acclaimed and emerging writers who perform their most electric work (for seven minutes or less) before a huge audience, and a panel of three all-star judges who take turns spouting affectionate, off-the-wall commentary about each story (meanness is never a factor, as judges are there for non-sequiturs and comedy, not serious critique). Two writers are selected as finalists and advance to the finals for a literary-skewed climax to decide the winner.

**Please note this event will be mixed seating/standing. Please arrive early for best seat selection.
