Literary Death Match
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.
