With our election anxiety at an all-time high, Literary Death Match heads to the sanity of Canada for our return to Vancouver — and more specifically the Fox Cabaret — presented by Sad Mag. A literary and comedy-infused night that will wow, ensorcel and lightly confound. Don't miss it!
What is Literary Death Match? We feature four writers who read their own work for seven minutes or less, who are then judged by three all-star judges. They select two finalists to compete in the Literary Death Match finale, a vaguely-literary game to decide the ultimate winner.
Literary Merit: Rachel Hartman, award-winning/NY Times best-selling author of Seraphina & Shadow Scale
Performance: Sara Bynoe, comedic performer, writer, host, actor and producer
Intangibles: Graham Clark, comedian, a 3-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee and co-host of Maximum Fun’s Stop Podcasting Yourself
* Aaron Chapman, musician, historian and award-winning author of Live at the Commodore & The Last Gang in Town
* Lucia Misch, poet, musician, and arts educator
* Jayson McDonald, Georgia Straight Vancouver International Fringe Festival critics' prize-winning performer
