Opium Magazine and So Say We All are proud to announce the
2010 Literary Death Match: San Diego!
The Literary Death Match features a mix of four writers who perform their most electric work (for seven minutes or less) before an audience, and a panel of three all-star judges who take turns spouting affectionate, off-the-wall commentary about each story. Two writers are selected as finalists and advance to the finals where we trade in the show’s literary sensibility for an absurdly comical climax to decide the winner.
