2022 Hear Me Out Call for Entries is here.

Hi Darling,

It's that time of year again. Time to bring an unforgettable character to life through a brand new monologue. And possibly get rewarded handsomely for your effort.

I sure hope you'll take a serious look at this year's call for entries. We've got even more prize money this year. The top prize (the Golden Ear) has a cash value of $2,500. Imagine that! You could spend a week or two writing and polishing a monologue to this year's festival theme and end up with enough cash to cover rent. (depending on your Zip code, of course)

Early bird deadline is June 15th. And if you have writers in your life you love who may not be RT Inner Circle members do a good deed and share this opportunity. 

Spread the love. It'll find its way back to you. Promise. 

In Audience Solidarity,

P.S. Reply to this email with suggestions, questions, and/or requests.

2022 Hear Me Out Monologue Competition Festival Theme:
When We Name It

In a world in which  social norms, political systems, economic laws and the natural environment are all facing existential challenges, the language we use to describe the world around us takes on new urgency. In order to change a thing, we first need to name it.  In order to care for something or someone it matters that we name it. If we want to understand something that confuses or frightens us, first we must name it. 


Since human beings created language, the labels we assign to things, people, places, activities, relationships, complex issues, etc. etc. have influenced our view of them. There are things we carry with us throughout life that feel so important, so powerful, that sometimes we dare not name them for fear that naming them might invite them to consume us. And yet, oftentimes the act of finally naming something we’ve been living with results in a newfound freedom. And, yes, we also name people, pets, places, projects and creations. 


And sadly, these days, our choices regarding how we identify certain things can even threaten to tear apart our most treasured relationships. 


Your 2022 Hear Me Out entry must in some way refer to some naming and its impact on the characters you’re revealing. As always we hope you will find your own way into our festival theme and we do not require the use of any specific words, language or stylistic choices.  


We only ask that your character grapples with our festival theme in some way.


And remember: your monologue must introduce us to a character who is talking to another person (or group of people). Short stories and essays will be disqualified.
