Literary Death Match: Midland/Odessa

In what's become an annual tradition, Literary Death Match heads back to the glory of West Texas as we team up with the Odessa Shakespeare Festival for a rollicking night of literature, wise-cracking, and all things in between.

What is Literary Death Match? Part literary event, part comedy show, part game show, Literary Death Match brings together four of today’s finest writers to compete in an edge-of-your-seat read-off critiqued by three celebrity judges, and concluded by a slapstick showdown to decide the ultimate champion.
