Please fill out the form below to submit your monologue, an email is not required. All submissions will be kept strictly confidential. Your anonymity is guaranteed.

Submissions for the 2018 show are due by Late Fall 2017


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.

For length, aim for 1-2 page 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.


We understand that some of you may be slightly apprehensive about submitting a monologue from your personal email address. Therefore, we have created a form that you can use to send us your submission. The form asks for a monologue code. You will make up any 6-digit number and input it in the designated field. Keep this code! After we choose monologues, we will post the codes that have been chosen so that you know if your monologue will appear in the show. 

You may open this form, input the required information (6-digit monologue code number that you make up), attach/upload your monologue, and it will be sent to us completely anonymously. This way, there will be absolutely nothing linking your name to your submission.


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 performances. (There is a link in the menu above.)
  • 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!

Write a short numeric code that we can use to inform you if your monologue has been chosen. After we have selected the monologues, we will post on our website the codes of the monologues that are chosen.
