Monday Minute Monologues

Starting Mondays in June, at noon, and every Monday after, we will post original monologues with a common theme on our website and Facebook page. Here are our guidelines:

Writers—We will provide a theme each week so the monologues posted have a unifying arc. Please let us know if it is okay for the actor to contact you if they have questions. To keep this creativity train running smoothly, we ask that you specify the gender and age range of the character you’ve written, keep the words they say family friendly, and keep your monologue to right around a minute. Submit your monologue to by midnight on the Monday before so we have time for the actor to prepare, which brings us to . . .
