LITERARY DEATH MATCH IN DUBLIN - TOMORROW!




I'm reading/competing in this tomorrow. I've decided to read poems. Or a story. Or poems. Agghhh - I can't decide. My neck hurts. The Baby is sick listening to me procrastinating. I can't deeeecccciiiidddde.

The spring issue of the Stinging Fly will also be launched at 7.30pm. Death Match at 9.15pm.

The Sugar Club, Leeson Street. Hope to see some of you there.

FROM THE DEATH MATCH SITE:

The Literary Death Match is heading to Dublin — and what a thrilling mix of stars we've got lined up!

The all-star judging panel is set to feature journalist/radio presenter Nadine O'Regan, playwright/producer Philly McMahon, and journalist/TV presenter Una Mullally. All will preside over a fearsome foursome of literary talents, including award-winning fiction writer and poet Nuala Ní Chonchúir, Stinging Fly's hand-picked reader-representative Colm Liddy, scribe Brian O'Connell (author of Wasted: A Sober Journey Through Drunken Ireland) and spoken-word brillianteur Marty Mulligan.

Hosted by Opium's Todd Zuniga. Co-produced by Belinda McKeon.

When: Doors at 7:30, show at 9:15 (sharp), afterparty: 11 p.m. and beyond.

Cost: €6 preorder; €9 at the door; €6 with a valid student ID.
