What is LTYM?
LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER features live readings by local writers on the beauty, the beast, and the barely-rested of motherhood, in staged community shows celebrating Mother’s Day. All shows are recorded and shared on our LTYMShow YouTube channel, boasting a catalog of nearly 1500 diverse stories of motherhood (daughter/son/father/Grandparent, etc).

Born of the creative work of mothers who publish on-line, each production is directed, produced, and performed by local communities, for local communities.

Do I have to be a mother to participate?
NO. Write about your mother, write about a grandparent or another person who raised you. Write about your desire or difficulties becoming a mother. Write about single-fatherhood. Whatever you write, as long as it’s your authentic story and a tribute to mothering about five minutes long spoken aloud, it should be appropriate for auditions.

Do I have to be a professional actor or writer?
Absolutely not. Everyone has a story, and LTYM wants to hear yours.  

Is LTYM an open mic?
No. Each LTYM is audition, directed, produced, and rehearsed with professional production values, creating a well-crafted and memorable theatrical experience.

How can I read in an LTYM production?
2016 LTYM productions are slated for 41 cities across the U.S. & Canada. Auditions will take place in Jan-March 2016. Check your local city site for details.

LTYM Salon is a scaled-down, informal, “unplugged” version of LTYM. Creative Alliance, a gathering of highly-motivated online women hosted the first Mom Salon in Ojai, CA in 2010 (and again in 2012), and BlogHer co-hosted an Open Mic Salon at BlogHer’11 in San Diego, in 2012 in New York City,  Chicago in 2013, San Jose in 2014, and New York City in 2015.

Can I host an LTYM production in my area?
If you have interest in hosting an LTYM production, email National Director Ann Imig,

I’m from a company interested in sponsoring LTYM National. Who do I contact? Please email deb@platformunlimited

What are LTYM’s causes?
10% of all LTYM ticket proceeds benefit non-profit charitable organizations. Many cities also fund-raise day of show. To date LTYM has raised over $80,000 for local nonprofit causes supporting women and families in need. Click the “causes” under the “about” tab to learn more.
