Posted by: Coronado Arts 1 year ago


What is the Memoir Showcase?

Short Memoir Pieces (monologues) will be directed and acted out on stage by professional actors at North Coast Rep on October 23rd in front of a live audience.  The SD Memoir Showcase is produced by San Diego Writers Ink and the San Diego Memoir Association.

How to submit:  Submit 5 pages (12-point font, double spaced) during submission period of May 15th to June 20th.   Cost of submission is $25.  Link to submit:

Please pay fee first, then send your pages to with “Memoir Showcase 2017” in the subject line.  Please place your name ONLY on the title page, not on the story itself.  Place the title of the story on the story itself (in the header).  The theme this year is: Where I Come From (writers can interpret the theme in any way that they are inspired)

10 writers will be selected, matched with writing coaches and then a director.  The director will hold auditions and select professional actors and actresses to perform the pieces.  Writers will meet for a roundtable read.
