Tipi Confessions Call for Stories
Tipi Confessions has a rolling submission deadline for stories/performances.

Submit your Story.​ Become a Tipi Confessions performer! We seek diverse voices, especially if stories like yours often go untold. We are an ALL-INCLUSIVE enterprise: we welcome storytellers and performers of all genders, races, sexualities, and abilities. And for this online production, all locations*.

We encourage you to submit sexually-themed stories and performances. Your performance doesn’t need to be “erotic” (although we love well-crafted erotica), but it should pertain positively to sex and sexuality. Consider telling your story from a political, humorous, creative, decolonial, feminist, and/or educational perspective. We want stories that fit our mission of ethics, education, and entertainment around sex, sexuality, and gender.

Types of Performances.​ Our shows have featured spoken word readings, personal narrative, memoir, fiction, burlesque, live musicians, stand-up comedy, short theatre performances/stage readings. We are also open to video clips and lively short lectures.

How to propose a concept. Please complete the submission form. Describe and explain your proposed performance, but also include some context for us such as motivation and intent. If you have specific questions about our expectations, please ask. Email attachments to tipiconfessions@gmail.com.

The Review Process. Acceptances may be contingent upon an audition/interview (via Zoom/Google Hangouts).

Tipi Confessions is produced by three Indigenous women: University of Alberta professor Kim TallBear (Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate), McMaster professor Tracy Bear (Nehiyaw'iskwew from Montreal Lake Cree Nation), and PhD student, Kirsten Lindquist (Cree-Métis). We are an offshoot of the popular Austin, Texas show, Bedpost Confessions(TM), founded in 2010. For more information, visit tipiconfessions.com.
