Submit Your Ideas and Passions to Ignite Phoenix 12

A big-time deadline is coming up on March 30 -- it'll be your last day to submit to Ignite Phoenix.

The deadline is just 15 days away, which should give you plenty of time to put together a sentence or two about your unique interests, passions, or life experiences that you want to share with a large, live audience.

That's the M.O. of Ignite Phoenix: Locals get up on a stage and present a 5-minute monologue of what they're passionate about, whether it's the economics of a zombie attack, birds, or how to save endangered music. (You can watch those presentations, and the rest of last year's Ignite Phoenix right here.)

Ideas must be "safe for general consumption" -- read: of a PG-13 nature -- and can't contain a sales pitch for anything. Seriously.

If you're game, fill out this submission form. Ideas must be sent by midnight on Friday, March 30.

Ignite Phoenix No. 12 will take place on Saturday, May 4, at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.. For more information, check out the Ignite Phoenix website and stay tuned for ticket sales ...
