Listen to Your Mother – Open Call

Opportunity for writers: My Co-Director, Elaine Alguire, and I (Jennifer Williams) are very excited to bring the LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER Show to Southeast Texas this year. LTYM features heartfelt, hilarious, and inspirational live readings from local writers in celebration of motherhood. Born of the creative work of mothers who publish online, each production is directed, produced, and performed by local communities, for local communities.

Nationally, almost 500 storytellers have participated to-date in the Listen To Your Mother show since its inception in 2010. Well over 10,000 have attended the shows. More than $25,000 has been raised for local non-profits. This year the show will be in 32 cities nationwide with almost 100 producers, directors and team members.

Auditions will be held in Beaumont, TX on February 22nd and 23rd. I understand that SWLA’s book festival is on the 22nd, but we have several audition slots available the following day. Individuals interested can register for an available time slot by forwarding their submission and audition request to
