Literary Death Match

INFO

Literary Death Match has become a perennial favorite here at SPACE, so we’re psyched that LDM is back for it’s fourth episode in Portland.  If you haven’t been before it works like this: The show brings together four authors to read their most electric writing for six minutes or less before a panel of three all-star judges. After each pair of readers, the judges take turns spouting hilarious, off-the-wall commentary in the categories of literary merit, performance and intangibles  then select their favorite to advance to the finals. The two finalists then compete in a vaguely literary competition to determine who takes home the Literary Death Match crown. 

This episode will feature Writers: Amy McDonaldLiz PeaveyAlexander Irvine, and Christopher Robley

And Judges: Bill LundgrenRachel Flehinger, and Steve Burnette 

Reflecting on the past 15+ months of pandemic, SPACE wants to highlight the amazing recipients of our 2020 Maine Visual Artist Emergency Relief Grants and Maine Musician Relief Grants. Explore these lists to learn more about the wellspring of artists and creative thought leaders in our state.
