Anonymous Open Mic is a storytelling project working to build a community narrative around mental illness and madness in Pittsburgh. Anyone can submit a poem, spoken word piece, or short story about mental health, mental illness, madness, substance use / addiction, trauma, etc to perform at the event. We also have the opportunity for anonymous submissions: anyone who would like to share their story has the option to submit a piece anonymously and protect their identity. Community members can then volunteer to perform the anonymous work in front of a live audience on behalf of the anonymous storyteller.
