Listen To Your Mother started in Madison, Wisconsin in 2010, and since then has turned into a national movement to give motherhood a microphone. St. Louis is honored to be part of the journey since 2013, and our LTYM family keeps growing!

2017 is a special year, the grand finale of the national show, and you don’t want to miss this opportunity to share your story, meet an incredible group of writers and new friends, and touch the lives of so many.

As co-producer/directors, Laura, Naomi & I are very proud of the momentum we’ve created right here in The Lou. We are excited to put our community in the spotlight once again and raise money for a local nonprofit charity!

Submissions will be open in January 2017, but you can start thinking about your story NOW! We also will let you know how to buy tickets to celebrate this very special Mother’s Day show at our home venue, the beautifully renovated Institute for Health Education at St. Luke’s.

You can read the official announcement here.

In the meantime, please subscribe to our United States/Canada newsletter and follow us on social media (Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook!).

I cannot believe that it’s over…I think I’m still in the afterglow of the best show and the best new friends ever! Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make LTYM St. Louis 2016 so damn spectacular. I’ve literally gotten hundreds of e-mails and voicemails from so many people RAVING about the show and telling me how much they enjoyed each and every story! Every single story was fabulous and made an impact. I hope that everyone in the cast realizes what we’ve accomplished and are so proud of themselves. A very very special THANK YOU to Taya Dunn Johnson for making the trip to St. Louis to see our show! I cannot tell you how much that meant to the entire cast, and especially to Naomi and I. I just wish we could have gone to Sweetie Pies with you…we were just a little busy! NEXT TIME!!! I LOVE YOU […]
