Hey, Y’all!

We’re always planning for our upcoming shows … and we want you to be a part of it! Are you a minority, trans, disabled, or anyone with a different perspective? Are you a pro at sharing stories? Are you scared because you’ve always wanted to do some storytelling but have no experience? Are you all of these things? None of them? Whatever your story is, whatever your background is, whatever experience level you’re coming from. . .WE WANT YOU! EVERYONE is welcome! The only requirement is that you have a non-fiction story about your life and experience that you’re excited to share with a room full of strangers. Put together a story submission that fits the theme below… by the deadline listed…



submission deadline: Friday, April 14
show: Wednesday, June 14

at Women & Children First Bookstore


What should a submission be?  What does that theme even mean? YOU decide. YOU are the star. All we want is a brave, bold and revealing story from YOU about YOU.  Does that sound like something you can do? (The answer is YES). Your submission should be a complete non-fiction story somewhere in the 1,200-1,600 word range or (8-10 minutes) in length.

Still have questions?  Email us at We really want to help you succeed and we want you in our show!

See you soon!
The YBR Team

submissions should be emailed to by the deadline listed above
