It’s the moment you’ve been waiting for, and it’s here. with our video release–we invite the global audience to come closer; to listen, learn, laugh, cry, and maybe even find hope anew. Together.Now we invite YOU to experience our extraordinary season featuring powerful voices that capture all facets of contemporary parenting (as well as stories about our own upbringing) including very timely personal narratives given the recent events in Orlando, Baton Rouge, Shaker Heights, and Dallas. On the Listen To Your Mother YouTube channel we feature a variety of playlists by topic, and for 2016 we’ve added two new playlists–one with stories about race, and another with stories from LGBTQ families.

Join LTYM at the #BlogHer16 blogging Open Mic!

National Media Sponsor SheKnows Media #BlogHer16, Merck for Mothers, and Listen To YourMother are thrilled to announce our 6th blogging Open Mic!!

What is the Open Mic?

The Open Mic is just one part of the incredible #BlogHer16 agenda, providing attendees a chance to relax and celebrate  a rich day of learning and networking. After celebrating the Voices of The Year #VOTY (bloggers selected from thousands of submissions to read their own writing at a microphone before the entire conference), you can throw your name in a hat for a chance to be randomly selected to read one of your very blog own posts before the most supportive audience that exists–your fellow internet writers.

All you need to do is bring a 5 minute piece (or shorter) to read, fill out a card, and throw it in the hat. We select readers randomly and aim to hear as many as possible. We request you respect your peers by limiting your piece to five minutes or under. Practice beforehand so you have an idea of the time. Or simply come to the Open Mic to enjoy a quiet space as an audience member, to enjoy the creative, hilarious, soul-bearing and heart-warming stories from your blog peers.

Note: You can read anything you’ve written online. It does NOT need to be remotely mother-related!!

When/Where is the Open Mic?

You can’t see the show if you don’t go to #BlogHer16. Register now for your seat in sunny Los Angeles August 4-6, 2016.
