Lillehammer, Ep. 1

May 21, 2014 — After too much time away, Literary Death Match returned to awe-inspiring Norway to be part of the Norsk Litteraturfestival for our Lillehammer debut, and what a night it was, as Ellisiv Lindkvist outdueled co-finalist Gina Cornelia Pedersen by a score of 35-34 in Literary Spelling Bee II, to win Lindkvist the LDM Lillehammer, Ep. 1 crown. 

Full details coming shortly! 

--------

What is Literary Death Match? 4 authors read their own work for 7 minutes or less. They're judged by 3 all-star judges who respond (often comedically) to the work before choosing 2 finalists to compete in the LDM finale, a vaguely literary game (think Pin the Mustache on Hemingway) to decide the ultimate champion. 

JUDGES: 
Literary Merit: John Erik Riley, editor at Cappelen Damm and author of Heimdal, California
Performance: Cathrine Sandnes, martial artist, journalist and editor-in-chief of Samtiden
Intangibles: Torgrim Eggen, musician, journalist, magazine editor, novelist and non-fiction writer

READERS: 
* Lars Ramslie, author of Tarjei Vesaas' debutantpris winner Biopsi and Fatso
* Gina Cornelia Pedersen, author of Null 
* Ola Jostein Jørgensen, author of Klassikeren
