18.3.2015 - Literary Death Match, London

PEOPLE OF ENDLESS INTELLECT! For our 9-year LDM anniversary on 18/3, we're heading to The Phoenix - for one of those dream nights that we so want you to be a part of. Another reason: some important people are slated to come, and if the place is packed, and you are your usual lit-loving delirious, that'll only help our cause (vagueries abound!).

Selling points: we've teamed with the wizards at The Borough Press to bring LIONEL SHRIVER (she wrote We Need to Talk About Kevin) to the stage and she is going to light it the expletive up, and we're nailing down our last two judges that'll make you super-happy to be alive.

Where: The Phoenix, 37 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0PP
When: Show at 8:15pm sharp; doors at 7pm; afterparty after!
Tickets: £8 pre-order; £10 on the door

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.

JUDGES:
*Literary Merit: Lionel Shriver, author We Need to Talk About Kevin, Big Brother, So Much For That
*Performance: TBA!
*Intangibles: TBA!

READERS:
* Will Hodgkinson, rock & pop critic (The Times, Mojo), TV presenter, memoirist of The House is Full of Yogis
