Your Info Has Been Submitted! Thank You!

We’ll be in touch if we have any questions. If you have any questions for us, please email us at

We look forward to your upcoming performance. In the meantime, spread the word!

If you’ve never read in front of a live audience before we suggest the following:

  • Practice performing/reading your piece aloud, preferably to other people, but even doing it to yourself in front of a mirror is a good start.
  • Record yourself performing/reading your piece. Listen to it back. You might be surprised at how fast you’re reading.
  • Focus on articulating the words on the page and projecting. There’ll be a microphone when you perform at our venue, but it’s better to be too loud than too soft.
  • Know your piece! Be familiar enough with your piece that you can look up from the page and engage your audience without fear of losing your place.
  • If your piece is longer than a single page, format it so pages don’t break mid-sentence. Also, double-space your piece and use a font that is big enough for you to easily read it without needing to hold it up to your face.
  • No matter the topic or tone of your piece, give it life when you read it. Showing enthusiasm about what you’re reading will help keep the audience engaged.

See you soon!
