Call For Submissions: LitUp

No comments

Check out this writing opportunity: LitUp is seeking humorous essays for their August show in San Francisco.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

LitUp Writers seeks humorous first-person essays about city life. We want to hear your stories about the city -- this city, that city, ANY city. It can be a city you've lived in, or one you only visited. A city you love, or a city you hate. So long as you have a really great story to tell about it, it's all good. Ideally, we seek pieces that are both funny and personal; stories that reveal something about the author through a humorous lens.

Selected stories will be read, by the authors, before a live audience on Tuesday, August 2, 2011 at Space Gallery in San Francisco. A mandatory rehearsal will be held on Sunday, July 31, 2011.

Please send all submissions, via e-mail, to litupwriters [at] gmail.com. Submissions must be 1,200 words or less. One submission per person, please.

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, June 21, 2011.
