Official announcement, poster and social media campaign launch designed to drive awareness of the literary bloodsport competition happening in Vancouver in October.
Vancouver’s W2 Storyeum location – also host to the W2 Real Vancouver Writers’ Series during the 2010 Winter Olympics – will host the event as part of the worldwide literary/performance/comedy phenomenon that is Literary Death Match.
Here’s the verbatim from the LDM website:
We’ve been eyeballing our northern neighbor for Literary Death Match purposes since this whole shindig began — but now, finally, we are beyond eager to (finally) make our LDM debut in Canada, with LDM100: Vancouver!
Boasting a kneecap-tingling assortment of literary and humorous dextrousness, the flair-fueied evening will feature eclectic judges like Talent Time host Paul Anthony, the dazzling comedian/actor Diana Frances, and street artist/Vancouver is Awesome creator Bob Kronbauer. Amazing!
But wait, there’s more! They’ll preside over four bring-down-the-house scribes including the hilarious Sara Bynoe, journalist and Tyee wordsmith Steve Burgess, master of comedy and writer, Charles Demers (Vancouver Special), and the amazing Nikki Reimer (author of [sic]). Plus! A full bar; awesome public art installations; worldclass DJs; and, of course, literary bloodsport!
Hosted by LDM creator Todd Zuniga. Produced by Sean Cranbury.
All guests get free entry to the DJ event at W2 after LDM!

Comedienne Rachel Bloom brings some 90’s power pop sensibility to this video homage to Ray Bradbury.
You remember Ray Bradbury, right? The author of Fahrenheit 69?
Good lascivious literary fun!
