Marty and I are thrilled to announce that we are accepting submissions for Listen to Your Mother: Raleigh-Durham starting TODAY!
We will use a two-part process to select the readers for the show on May 8, 2013:
- Submit your essay to LTYMrdu@yahoo.com between January 23, 2013 – February 10, 2013
- Auditions will be held on Tuesday, March 5 and Thursday, March 7 for selected pieces
What are We Looking For?
We’re looking for Raleigh-Durham area writers to read their original essays on motherhood, be they funny, heartbreaking, triumphant, poignant or thoughtful. While you don’t have to be a blogger, mother or heck, even a woman to submit, the theme of your piece must be about motherhood.
We welcome diverse perspectives and encourage people of all ages, backgrounds and experience to submit.
The Nitty Gritty
- Pieces should take 3-5 minutes to read aloud
- Previously published work accepted as long as the author retains full rights or has express permission to read the work for this event.
Commitment for cast members includes two group read-throughs (dates TBD), a pre-performance run-through and a 7:30 PM performance at Kenan Auditorium on May 8, 2013.
We know you’re out there: tell us your stories!
Please contact me or Marty if you have any questions.
