In our annual showcase of DC's lit and comedic finest, Literary Death Match returns to the Nation's Capitol for our Sixth & I debut that will ensorcell, wow and most assuredly hilarify. Don't miss it!
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.
