Call for Submission
Just Speak is launching a new storytelling series called “Starting Point” and we want to feature your stories! Ten selected stories will be shared at an intimate event on November 27th hosted at Red Bull Radio Detroit.
Stories can be humorous, make the audience feel uncomfortable or sad, or be suspenseful but they can’t be offensive to race, sexuality or any social group. It is a live storytelling series that showcases real stories from the community around the subjects of resiliency and trauma in an intimate but public setting. You’re expected to be the author of your own story because…well, it’s your experience after all! No props, no reading, no standup, no rants. Stories can be humorous, make the audience feel uncomfortable or sad, or be suspenseful but they can’t be offensive to race, sexuality or any social group. Colorful language should be minimal if any—no graphic descriptions, F bombs, or coarse gestures. We want the story to hold to its own weight without having forced shock value. We get 5 minutes with you to share in your more down-to-earth self.
Please consider sharing your story with us! : https://form.jotform.co/82420952901857
SUBMISSIONS CLOSE OCTOBER 19TH!
