Lip Service, Miami Book Fair’s premier showcase for true stories, out loud, and Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) present: Storypalooza!: “When Identities Collide.”

What do a Latina woman, a conservative Jew, and a gay Catholic have in common? Their life experiences have been shaped by the intersection of their multiple social identities. Who we are is an intersection of identities: Age. Gender. Race. Class. Culture. Sexual orientation. Religion. Politics. Ethnicity. Language. Physical ability. Physical challenge. Sometimes, identity is what holds us together; other times it pulls us apart. Come out and present a personal, true story about a time when the intersection of your social identities challenged and changed you. Twelve readers will receive feedback on their story from an all-star panel of editors, including Lip Service co-producers Esther Martinez and Nicholas Garnett, and Lip-Service founder and Writing Class Radio producer Andrea Askowitz.

Stories must be written and no longer than 500 words (about 4 minutes) long.
