Literary Death Match at Bumbershoot 2014
In what we're hoping will be the greatest hour of literary wizardry of the summer, Literary Death Match is headed to the amaze and awe of Bumbershoot for a mid-afternoon spectacular that will wow, titillate, hilarify and other semi-real words. Don't miss it!
What is Literary Death Match? 4 authors read their own work for 6 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.
JUDGES: Literary Merit: David Schmader, writer, performer and associate editor at The Stranger Performance: TBA Intangibles: TBA
* Sara Benincasa, author of Great and one of Flavorwire's 25 Female Comedians Everyone Should Know
* Rachel Shukert, author of the Starstruck series, Everything is Going to be Great and Have You No Shame? * Jamaal May, poet and author of Hum, winner of the Beatrice Hawley Award * Peter Mountford, author of A Young Man’s Guide to Late Capitalism and The Dismal Science
Hosted by LDM creator Adrian Todd Zuniga
