After 44 Manhattan-based events, Literary Death Match is finally making the pretty obvious move to the better borough, with our official debut in Brooklyn at the amazing Union Hall! The wild night will feature enough genius to fuel your entire month, and while there are 16 billion other things to do that night, trust us when we say you don't want to risk missing this.
The wild night will feature four writers reading their own work for seven minutes or less, judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists will be chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game that will steal your affection/attention.

Performance: Dale Seever, host of the ever-brilliant Dale Radio
