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!
