Your story could be an essential part of this year’s Listen To Your Mother celebration of mothering by giving a voice to motherhood — in all of its complexity, diversity, and humor. If you have a story longing to be heard about your mother, your own view as a mother, or about a mother-figure in your life — write it down and share with us!
Southwest Michigan is currently accepting written submissions via email to ltymswmichigan (@) gmail (.) com. Please make sure your piece is edited to the best of your ability and that it does not exceed FIVE MINUTES read aloud (we suggest you record yourself reading it so you can get a time). Please be sure to write SUBMISSION in the subject of your email. You will be contacted soon when try-out/audition signups are made available for March!
Audition process and requirements vary by city, and some cities have not yet made their announcements but will soon (including Southwest Michigan!). We will update audition info as it is available –keep checking in and be sure to follow Listen To Your Mother on Facebook and @LTYMShow on Twitter for updates.
