What Is Your America? A Call For Stories

October 23, 2017

Penumbra Theatre is creating a performance written by Minnesotans about their experiences and they want your story! Here is the info you need:

“What is your America? What do you hope it could be? My America is an invitation for Minnesotans to share how each of us experience our nation. Stories from across the state will be performed live on stage and broadcast across the radio to inspire a more loving, inclusive America. We invite you to claim your whole self–your history, your specificity, and your identity–in service of creating a diverse and beautiful portrait of our country. Written submissions from the public will be accepted online and reviewed by a panel of playwrights, authors, journalists, and activist artists. Finalists will work closely with our artists-in-residence to workshop their narratives as they prepare to take center stage and will receive a $200 cash prize. Penumbra will share these inspiring stories at Let’s Talk: My America in March 2018.”

The deadline to submit your story is November 17, 2017. Click here to go to Penumbra’s site
