This may be bloodier than Game of Thrones. I’m going but expecting the worst. Please join me tomorrow night for an evening that may horrify and/or delight! Other cities enjoying the Literary Death Match in April and May include Austin, Los Angeles, Boston, and London (participants vary by city).
Here’s what the organizers have to say:
After an electric October debut, Literary Death Match is teaming with The Porch Writers’ Collective for our return to Nashville – the front-runner for our City of the Year in 2015! – for a madcap event at The Stone Fox that will wow, awe, confuse and titillate. Preorder now!
What is Literary Death Match? Four writers read their own work for seven minutes or less, and are then judged by three all-star judges. Two finalists are chosen to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game to decide the ultimate winner.
* Tiana Clark, poet who’s appeared in Sisterhood, Southern Voices: Volume 8 & The Southwestern Review
Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga
When: Wednesday, April 15th, show at 8:35pm sharp; doors at 8pm; afterparty after!

“I suppose I walk that line between comedy and cruelty because I think one illuminates the other. We’re all cruel, aren’t we? We are all extreme in one way or another at times and that’s what drama, since the Greeks, has dealt with.”
Martin McDonagh (Irish director and playwright)
