We want to hear YOUR stories!!!

LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER INDIANAPOLIS is now accepting submissions for the May 3rd show (two, at 1pm and 5pm). Judy Miller (@MamaMiller) and Michelle McNally (@gotchababy) are co-producing and directing LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER Indianapolis for their third season.

We are calling for your original, humorous, poignant, and soulful words about:

  • Mothering
  • Any theme where the star of the story is MOTHERHOOD

We want stories that take three to five minutes to read, roughly 750-800 words. Please check your word count before emailing your submission to us.

  • Not a writer? No problem.
  • No stage experience? No problem.
  • Not a blogger? No problem.
  • Not a mother? No problem.
