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.
Your topic must be something you can talk about for five minutes sharp with no fear and can be supported with a 20-slide presentation (optional).
If you're ready or think you have a pretty raunchy idea, check out Ignite After Hours' website. Submissions must be received by Tuesday November 9.
The inaugural Ignite Phoenix After Hours is on December 3 at the The Ballroom at Myst Nightclub in Scottsdale. Tickets are sold out, but keep an eye on Craigslist and the Ignite After Hours website for updates.
