LoveNotes! - True Stories of First Love, Last Love, & All The Love In Between seeks monologues


Deadline: November 10, 2023

Thanks for your interest in LoveNotes! - True Stories of First Love, Last Love, & All The Love In Between. The World Premier will be held Saturday, February 10, 2024 in New York City (one day of shows!)

Spread the word. Tell the poets, lovers, dreamers and anybody else who's ever been in love that I'm looking for TRUEheartwarming to heartbreaking stories of first love, last love, forever love, unrequited love, the against-all-odds love, gay love, trans love, the one-that-got-away love, happily-ever-after love, unexpressed love, online love, arranged marriage love, worst date-ever love, friends-to-lovers love, never-ending love, opps-that-was-a-mistake love, second-time-around love, and on and on.

You get the idea—any story about romantic love in any of its incarnations. No stories about how much you love your mom, kid, teacher, etc.— A LoveNotes! story is the kind of yarn in which Cupid has shot someone in the heart and has lived to tell the tale. Funny is hard to find so if you have a humorous take on love, please audition. 

The only two requirements are:
  • Your story must be true.
  • Your story must 1000 words or fewer.
