Literary Death Match, Ep. 40

A session at Literary Death Match, Ep. 40

There’s nothing more social than getting up close and personal with hundreds of attractive lit-nerds to hear some of the best writing around, and that’s why we are heading to East London’s coolest new venue the Proud Archivist to bring you Literary Death Match AND Social Book Week‘s afterparty!

All tickets include entry to our show, the Social Book Week afterparty AND a donation to the Reading Agency

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.

Literary Merit: TBA!
Performance: TBA!
Intangibles: Tom Webb, award-winning comedian, performer, general troublemaker.

Heather O’Neill, Canadian novelist, poet, short story writer, screenwriter and journalist, author of the multi-award-winningi Lullabies for Little Criminals
Lloyd Shepherd, author of The Poisoned Island, The English Monster and Savage Magic (August 2014)

Hosted by LDM co-creator Adrian Todd Zuniga and LDM Executive Producer Suzanne Azzopardi!
