Literary Death Match
Literary Death Match, is celebrating it's 10th year in 2016 and we're psyched to welcome LDM back to SPACE to celebrate. Now in 50 cities worldwide, LDM was called "the most entertaining reading series ever" by the LA Times. The live show hosted by Adrian Todd Zuniga brings together four authors to read their most electric writing for seven 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 the Literary Death Match finale, which trades in the shows literary sensibility for an absurd and comical climax to determine who takes home the Literary Death Match crown.

It may sound like a circus  and that's half the point. Literary Death Match is passionate about inspecting new and innovative ways to present text off the page, and the most fascinating part about the LDM is how seriously attentive the audience is during each reading. It's been called this the great literary ruse: an audacious and inviting title, a harebrained finale, but in-between the judging creates a relationship with the viewer as a judge themselves.
