Power of Words – Open Audition for Poets for TBTN Ann Arbor 2020


We are looking for powerful poets to perform at the 2020 Take Back the Night Ann Arbor held on Thursday April 2 in the Michigan League Ballroom
We are holding open auditions on
February 4, 2020 in Room A in the Michigan League starting at 7:00 pm
Piece performed must be the piece that you would perform at the rally.

Sign up via link below!

We will be picking person to perform and they will receive $100 and be featured on our website, social media and of course at the rally.

Pieces performed must make a statement around sexual violence, whether around an experience, thoughts about rape culture, or similar.  Must be empowering and uplifting.   Original work only please.  However, if someone would like to have someone else perform their poem, that is acceptable.  We do ask that the writer be present at the audition.

Take Back the Night is an event to raise awareness about sexual violence, provide an outlet for resources to get the word out about their services, change rape culture and give survivors a voice and let them know they are not alone and there is hope and healing.  We ask that your pieces stay within this mindset.

Please fill out this form to sign up to audition.
