Ignite Phoenix After Hours Wants You to Present on Anything ... Really
Ignite Phoenix is back with a twist -- an "edgier", risqué edition for those who didn't get their fill listening to the five-minute (and more family friendly) presentations in October. At Ignite After Hours anything goes ... and you can be front stage and center.
The Ignite team has already lined up a few presentations on topics ranging from How to be comfortable naked to What high school teachers are REALLY thinking. So what's your story or edgy passion? Submit your idea by tomorrow to get a chance to present, entertain, and get in free because as of now, tickets are sold out.
More event details and presentation requirements after the jump ...
The skinny: You have to be at least 21 years old, your topic can't incite hate and while your presentation description should be "safe for general consumption" -- they can't stop you while you're on stage.
