SUBMIT YOUR STORY

Submission Deadline: Friday, March 10, 2017

The University of Akron Theatre Program is looking for monologues for their upcoming production of Me Too Monologues, directed by Jim Slowiak. The production is about a variety of identities to focus on amplifying voices rarely heard on stage and to use theatre to raise consciousness around structural oppressions on our campus and in our community. We’re open to any facet of identity: gender, expression, mental health, race, religion, ethnicity, ability, sexual orientation, class, country of origin, immigration status, ability, age, gender identity.

We want all stories – sad, happy, funny, scary, angry, contemplative, whatever.
We want all formats – anecdotes, poems, speeches, blog posts, conversations, interviews.
Really, absolutely any format is acceptable.
No story is too small.

WRITING TIPS

Here are some quick tips for writing your story:

Don’t approach it like an academic essay
Write it like you’re saying it to somebody
Take a look at some past performance??
Try reading it out loud to yourself or a friend
Remember, everyone has a story

Here’s a non-exhaustive list of words to get you thinking:

Family
Relationships
Mental Health
Religion
Spirituality
Race
Sex
Gender Identity
Ethnicity
Language
Culture
Sexuality
Discrimination
Ability Status
Class
Nationality
Community
Career
And all their intersections!

For length, aim for 1-2 pages single-spaced, or 2-4 pages double-spaced. If you want to submit a story, but aren’t sure how to put it on paper, please email us. We’d be more than happy to work with you.

Note: We sometimes edit pieces that are too long. If you would like creative control over edits please note it in your submission and include a good way to get in contact.
