Monday Monologue Jam

As part of our efforts to keep our artistic community engaged and creative during this socially distancing time, we’re proud to present the bi-weekly Monologue Monday Jam! This is a great chance for writers to get inspired, and for actors to practice their storytelling skills while self generating content. Are you a writer AND an actor? Submit for both!

The Details

  • The What: We randomly pair 15 actors with 15 writers, who then meet at our Monday Night Mixer the night that the pairings and prompts are announced. Writers then have roughly 48 hours after meeting their actor to write a one minute monologue inspired by the assigned prompt, and Actors have roughly 72 hours after receiving their monologue on Wednesday Night to rehearse and record a performance of the monologue written just for them.
  • The How: Check us out on Instagram (@TheShelterNYC) to watch previous Monday Monologue Jams to see what’s been made in previous weeks, and check our Linktree in the week after new videos premier to sign up!
  • The When: Videos premier every other Monday at 7:30PM ET, and sign up for the next Jam opens immediately after and closes Friday at Midnight. Participation in the Monday Night Mixer is mandatory, so that teams can meet before working together.
  • The Where: Mostly the internet and your apartments. Let’s turn these limitations into lemonade!
