We are thrilled it’s time to get started on the second annual Listen To Your Mother: Little Rock! If you didn’t see last year’s performance, this is what you missed. We think this year can be equally amazing! And we need you to do it.

LTYM: Little Rock is looking for a diverse group of writers (amateurs, professionals, first-timers too!) to read their stories about motherhood May 7, 2015 at the Ron Robinson Theater.

The show will be recorded and shared with a global audience on LTYMShow’s YouTube Channel, along with the other show videos from our 2015, 39-city season.

Who can audition?
Men and women, mothers & non-mothers of all ages & races – amateur or profession – in other words, YOU (or that friend you are thinking of right now).

What kind of piece should I audition with?
Your own original writing; it can be a funny, touching, or even sad piece about being a mom (or not being a mom), having a mom (or not having a mom), or knowing a mom — so long as motherhood is the star. Previously published work accepted as long as the author retains full rights or has express permission to read the work for the event. Note: Irreverent pieces are welcome, explicit pieces are not (think PG-13.) 

Pieces should be 5 minutes or less when read aloud – approximately 1000 words, please time yourself to be sure.

What else do I need to know?
Live auditions will be March 6 & 7. You will be contacted about a time after you submit your piece. Please note: all submissions are subject to editing for time or content, if selected.

Your commitment includes two rehearsals, scheduled for April 25 and May 2, along with being available the day of the show, May 7.

Submissions will be open through February 22.

I’m ready to share my story!
Great! Email your story to ltymlittlerock@gmail.com by February 22. We can’t wait to see what you’ve got!

After a crazy successful inaugural show for Listen to Your Mother: Little Rock, we are really excited about 2015. We are making plans for a May 7 show at the Ron Robinson Theater.

Little Rock will be one of 39 Listen to Your Mother shows around the country this year. We think we can make this year’s show even better than last, if that’s possible.

So mark your calendars, and put your creative caps on! Who do you know with a story that’s begging to be told? Do you have a story about your mom, being a mom or anything related to motherhood? We want to hear them all.

We’ll be calling for submissions soon.

Thank you for a wonderful show, Little Rock!

May 26, 2014

We couldn’t have asked for a better inaugural LTYM show in Little Rock. In front of a wonderfully warm crowd on Mother’s Day afternoon, 15 readers shared their stories of motherhood. What a thrill! Many, many thanks to our local sponsors: Savvy Kids Magazine, Jacob Slaton Photography, JPEG Productions, TC Print Solutions, Beyond Sound & Security, Belle & Blush, Laura Lynn Brown – author of “Every Thing That Makes You Mom”; and national sponsors Chevrolet and Blogher. We could not have done this show without your help. We were also thrilled to make a donation of 10% of the gross ticket sales to The One, Inc, in their efforts to open a new women’s home in central Arkansas. Thank you so much, Little Rock! by

Katherine Blackmon is a lawyer, life coach, health and wellness coach, and one-time assistant to Burt Reynolds – she knows EXACTLY how many Sweet’N Lows he likes in his iced tea.  She is also a renowned multi-media artist, an award-winning interpretive dancer, and the author of numerous best selling self-help books (not really, but she was instructed to produce a short bio, so she gets to write whatever she wants).  Katherine is also co-dependant and channels this energy through rescuing and fostering countless big-eared dogs. Finally, Katherine is living proof that her mother’s curse has teeth – her amazing daughter, Lydia Elliott, is JUST LIKE HER. We love Katherine’s energy and […]
