2014 Poetry World Series: Litquake Edition

This rowdy, fast-paced reading features two teams of award-winning poets taking turns batting at topics pitched by the audience. Fastballs, curveballs, knuckleballs: these poets won't know what's coming next. Judges Ellen Bass, Chad Sweeney, and others will score each performance, and the winning team takes the series title. Hilarity­—and top-notch poetry— guaranteed! Emceed by Daniel Handler. Presented by timekeeper Roy Mash and series organizers Rebecca Foust and Melissa Stein. Music and sound effects mixed by Kristen Clark.
