Literary Death Match in Dublin

I've been nominated for the Irish Blog Awards. Yay! Thanks. Anyone know how to get to the judges?!

Meanwhile....

New York based Opium Magazine bring their infamous Literary Death Match series to Dublin.

This sounds intriguing and maybe a little scary.

"a mix of four famous and emerging authors who perform their most electric writing (in eight minutes or less) before a lively audience and a panel of three all-star judges."

The Dublin judging panel features journalist/radio presenter Nadine O' Regan, playwright/producer Philly McMahon, and journalist/TV presenter Una Mullally
Contestants for the evening are award-winning fiction writer and poet Nuala Ní Chonchúir, Stinging Fly's hand-picked reader-representative Colm Liddy, author Brian O'Connell and spoken-word artist Marty Mulligan
The event is hosted by Opium's Todd Zuniga (what a cool name!) and co-produced by journalist Belinda McKeon.

Where: The Sugar Club, 8 Lower Leeson Street, Dublin

When: 5th March, Doors at 7:30, show at 9:15 (sharp)

Cost: €6 preorder; €9 at the door; €6 with a valid student ID.
