Literary Death Match (A Lit Crawl Event)

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Saturday, November 7, 2020
Part literary event, part comedy show, part game show, Literary Death Match brings together four of today’s finest writers to compete in a read-off critiqued by three judges, and concluded by a slapstick showdown to decide the ultimate champion.
Thank you to partners Desert Door Sotol and Rambler Sparkling Water, supporting community through storytelling! The first 200 people who register for Literary Death Match will have the option to pick up a Desert Door Camp Mocha kit and other goodies on Saturday, November 7, from 12:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Location details will be shared via email with the first 200 registrants.
