Before submitting to Strong Words, we strongly suggest you come to one of our shows to hear the stories, listen to the music, look at the art, and experience the magic of the Strong Words community.


We are always looking for new voices.

If you’d like to be a Strong Words storyteller, we encourage you to contact us.

Our writing guidelines are simple. Every story should be true, written in the first-person, and be no more than 1,350 words.

Strong Words Art Exhibition


If you are an Artist interested in showcasing your visual artwork (painting, photography, collage, sculpture) in a one-night only pop-up show, then Strong Words wants to hear from you!

Please email us your name, bio, links to your artwork’s online presence (website, Instagram, portfolios, etc.), and any upcoming Los Angeles shows where your artwork is being presented.


We open and close every show with a musical performance.

If you’re a singer or singer/songwriter or instrumentalist and want to perform at one of our shows, please contact us with a link to your work. We’d love to take a listen!
