This year #BlogHer16 is coming to Los Angeles for the first time, August 4-6 at the JW Marriott at LA Live.
LTYM’s origin story began at #BlogHer09 where I sat and listened to online writers like you read their work at a podium. So moved by the electric storytelling on stage — the shared reverence for writing, the peer support in the audience bearing witness to true personal stories, and the creativity and ingenuity of people who normally wouldn’t otherwise find themselves speaking on stage — a spark lit inside me, which fueled the creation of Listen To Your Mother.
Now called #VOTY (Voices of the Year), BlogHer announced their call for submissions — for the chance to share your work live on their main stage at the conference! And Listen To Your Mother is thrilled to partner with BlogHer once again on our annual Open Mic storytelling event following #VOTY, to allow even more of our online community members to share their words.
What spark awaits you at BlogHer? A business idea? Inspiration for a book or webseries? New colleagues, or dear online friends you might only get the chance to meet in real life if you go to BlogHer? Maybe you submit your work or a friend’s work for #VOTY, or throw your name in for a chance to read at our Open Mic!
BlogHer is robust with opportunities both personal and professional, but in order to find that spark you need to show up! Here’s a 20% discount to help you do just that.
