We are looking for short, 5-8 minute HUMOROUS pieces; personal essay, flash memoir, monologue, slam poetry, 2-character play, creative non-fiction.

WHEN: We will be doing two readings: 8:00 pm Friday, July 11, 2014 at Thick House Theatre, Potrero Hill SF, and 3:00pm Sunday, September 28 at The Phoenix Annex, Downtown SF. Before you submit, please make sure you are available on the day of the reading to attend a run-though in addition to the performance.
