A Live Monthly Show
To Whom it May Concern is always accepting submissions!
Submissions are on-going. If you miss one show, there will be another one the following month!
All submissions must be in letter form. Letters that have been emailed are acceptable as long as they still constitute a letter. Postcards are also acceptable.
The letter can either be:
1) a real letter you have written
2) a real letter you have received
3) correspondence back and forth
4) a creative letter you would send if you could (example)
Dear Trader Joes,
There is no denying that I am a die-hard fan. A frequent flier, a consummate shopper and inhaler of your salty snacks. I love your tightly packed shelves filled with items I can’t do without. I know where every item is housed, could draw a treasure map for first-time shoppers of where to locate rosemary ham, luscious clam chowder and delectable Chaldiki olives. What I can’t seem to navigate however, with any sense of ease, grace or patience, is your PARKING LOT! Any of them and I have been to many Trader Joes in different cities and in different states! Why? Is it a test? Only the brave who master the lot can reap the TJ’s rewards? Is it so that when we finally blast through your front doors, frazzled yet victorious, we are likely to spend more money out of a sense of parking-lot accomplishment? Or are we so fatigued by driving round and round, gritting our teeth at those who insist on holding up all traffic so they can back in, that we have no resolve left? Are we rendered essentially defenseless against the free samples and exciting new products, leaving with twice as much as we planned to buy? Oh Joe! I’ll always be devoted to your 50% less salt dry roasted almonds, so think of me the next time you’re painting those parallel white lines. PLEASE!
Letters should be roughly 5-7 minutes. If you live out of State (or have stage-fright) and wish to submit a letter to be read in your absence, please indicate on your submission. Submissions can be emailed to: email@example.com
