Literary Death Match

A perennial Wordfest fave, Literary Death Match marries the literary and performative aspects of Def Poetry Jam, the rapier-witted quips of American Idol’s judging (without any meanness), and the ridiculousness and hilarity of Double Dare. Four brave authors will perform their most electric passages in seven minutes before an expert judging panel made up of Patrick Weekes, Jordan Tannahill, and Alice Kuipers, last year’s “take no prisoners” champ.
