VOCAB: Past Journal Readings and Confessions

IMG_7862.jpg

We're excited to announce the return of our annual confessions show! This is not like any other VOCAB we have during the year.

This is an open-mic with a theme, confessions!

This show is your chance to release something that binds you.
If you want to be anonymous you are welcome to write your confession down (pen & paper provided) and have our hosts, Tatjana Rebelle or Corey Ewing read it aloud for you.

This show also is your invitation to break out your old journals/ diaries from your childhood and take us on a walk down memory lane. (Inspired by the Mortified Series)

For clarification purposes:
All those looking to perform or get on the mic, the piece/ story should be based on a confession or a reading from your journal/dairy from childhood.

Please be considerate of time and keep each performance to no more then 7 minutes.

Signup is at the event.
