LTYM – Twin Cities – Meet The Producers and Directors

by Tracy on March 24, 2013

We are so pleased to bring LTYM to the Twin Cities for the inaugural local show on May 9, 2013! The Twin Cities is known for its talent, literary community, local theaters and productions, supporting the arts, and being a perfect place to raise a family. For those reasons, and so many more, we know that Listen To Your Mother will have a very happy and successful home in Minnesota.

 

This week we will introduce you to our talented cast of readers, but today we want you to know a little bit more about us – your local producers and directors, as well as the amazing woman who founded LTYM.

 

We know you will enjoy this inspiring event celebrating Mother’s Day and hope you can join us.

ANN IMIG National Director, Director/Producer Madison–A stay-at-home humorist, Ann began inflicting herself upon your internet with her blog Ann’s Rants in 2008.

Ann founded the live-reading series Listen To Your Mother, spurring a national movement giving Mother’s Day a Microphone. Ann also serves on the Board of Directors for Violence Unsilenced.com.

HEATHER KING Co-Director – loves Minneapolis and St.Paul nearly equally, which is a rare thing for a Minnesotan.

Heather has been writing at The Extraordinary Ordinary for over five years and is also a contributor at She Posts, Owning Pink, AllParenting, and A Deeper Family. She is an editor at Story Bleed Magazine and co-host of the BlogHer conference’s Serenity Suite.

She is currently finishing the Foreword Writing Apprenticeship in Creative Nonfiction at the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis. When not writing, rapping with her kids or keeping the cat off the dining room table, she enjoys making movies with a cast of
thousands…of marshmallow peeps. She lives in Minneapolis with her partner and two kids and spends every single winter complaining about the cold. Vikki is also part of our talented LTYM- Twin Cities cast.
