09 Literary Death Match San Francisco!

Episode description

Episode preview

The LA Times called Literary Death Match “...the most entertaining reading series ever."

In the lead-up to next week’s 10/17 San Francisco Literary Death Match, I talked with producer Matthew DeCoster about what it is, how it attracts such top-notch talent and celebrity judges, and why it’s been such a success the world over, from New York to London to Shanghai and beyond.

Matthew DeCoster is a producer at Literary Death Match San Francisco and a former member of Litquake's Executive Committee. At Litquake, he produced Write On and hosted Barely Published Authors. He's been published in sPARKLE & bLINK, SFWire, and BANG OUT, and featured at numerous reading series.

NEXT SUNDAY: Openhouse’s Michelle Alcedo tells us all about the great work that organization does for LGBT seniors.
