Literary Death Match
Cost: £5 preorder at www.literarydeathmatch.com); £6 on the door.
Literary Death Match is coming to the City of Arcades! We've teamed with the Cardiff Arts Institute to bring together some top Welsh literary talent, to be judged by a band of humorous geniuses, for a literary night like none other.
The four readers (performing their own work for seven minutes or less) include Cardiff-born, John Tripp Spoken Poetry Audience Prize champ Mab Jones (who represented Wales at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington, DC), author/journalist/editor Susie Wild (author of The Art of Contraception, winner of the Fiction Book of the Year in the Welsh Icons Awards), self-described poet/ranter Patrick Jones, and expat-poet David Oprava (editor of Grievous Jones Press).
They'll be judged by our all-star trio of arbiters including ITV's Nicholas Whitehead (founder of Llandegley International Airport), award-winning comedienne/actress/writer Taylor Glenn ("One to Watch", Funny Women Awards, Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2010), and prize-winning short story writer and Edinburgh fest-mastermind Huw Ellis!
Hosted by LDM creator Todd Zuniga.
