Call for words!
January 17, 2017
Do you have a story, poem, prose or spoken word tribute to the earlier, more foolish you? If so, Rooted Emerging hopes you’ll submit it for Love’s Fool 2017: “On April Fool’s Day, we pay homage to the inner adolescent in us all, who felt so much, made mistakes, and lived to tell the tale.”
The Call for Stories requests original work from writers 18 and over. Performance is limited to 3 – 8 minutes (roughly 500 – 1000 words). Preference will be given to the funny, the heartfelt, the shamelessly honest, the romantic and the subtly sexual (suitable for audiences ages 12 & up). Stories set during ages 10 – 16 will be given priority. The submission deadline is Wednesday, February 15, 2017, and performers will be contacted by March 1. Find out more on the Rooted Emerging website, where you’ll also find a link to the complete guidelines.
