Joe Dunthorne triumphs in Literary Death Match

24th July 2009

Writer Joe Dunthorne has progressed to the final of the Opium Literary Death Match, after triumphing in the London Episode earlier this week.

The death match is a humorous reading series in which competing performers have eight minutes to perform some of their most electric writing to an audience and panel of judges.

Readings are judged according to literary merit, performance and intangibles, coloured with off-the-wall commentaries on each story.

The Old Queen's Head in Islington hosted the London leg of the series on July 21st, with Laura Dockrill, Nick Harkaway, Tim Wells, Selena Godden and Luke Brown joining Mr Dunthorne with some readings.

Organisers have yet to announce their second Literary Death Match date of this year, set to take place around mid-September.

The event now moves to New York City and Chicago on July 30th and 31st, with dates in San Francisco, Denver, Los Angeles and Seattle scheduled throughout August and Paris in September.
