The 3rd annual LISTEN TO YOUR MOTHER St. Louis seeks a diverse collection of writers (amateurs, professionals, first-timers welcome!) to read their original essays about motherhood at The Emerson Auditorium at St. Luke’s Hospital, also known as the Institute for Health Education.

The St. Louis production is scheduled for 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Mother’s Day weekend, Saturday, May 9, 2015. It’s a St. Louis tradition–and you still have plenty of time to visit Laumeier Sculpture Park and have brunch with the family.  All ages and variety of writers are invited to submit a story. And yes, non-mothers, men, dads are encouraged to submit their story, too!

Submissions are being accepted Jan 1-February 16, so start writing now.  Everyone will receive an email conformation upon receipt of your story. We will contact those selected for an audition to sign up for a date and time, either Feb. 28, March 1 or March 5, at St. Luke’s. 

The Institute for Health Education is located on the 2nd level of the North Medical Building on St. Luke’s campus, 232 South Woods Mill Road, 63017, in Chesterfield, MO.
