May VAMP Showcase: “Do It Yourself (DIY)”

There’s nothing like braiding out your chest hairs, throwing prefab conveniences to the side, and making something happen all on your ownsome. Stories about bucking everything from Pilsbury to GPS, taking life on post-apocalypse style, or just plain being the one who took the initiative upon themselves makeup the VAMP Show the month of May.

Submission deadline: May 4th

April VAMP Showcase: “This is a Story About a Time When I Exhibited a Complete Disregard for the Emotional and Physical Well-Being of Myself and Others – or – ‘YOLO’”

Somebody could have put their eye out. Maybe somebody did. And it’s all your fault. We can’t all be little safety instructors all the time, and every once in a while we just get so excited, tunnel-visioned, or self-obsessed that we don’t have time to dwell on the fact that we are acting with Blatant Disregard for the Physical and Emotional Well-Being of Others. Kind of like when we decided on this baroque show title. #YOLO

Tell us about it.

Submission deadline: April 6th

Veterans-Writers-Program

Now accepting applications to the Veteran Writers Program

So Say We All’s 2014 Veteran Writers Program is sponsored by a grant from Cal Humanities, “California Reads” program and The Center for the Book, in partnership with San Diego’s Downtown Central and Oceanside Libraries.

6-week creative writing courses will be made available to active-duty and military veterans through social service partnerships, and open enrollment in Oceanside and San Diego. Works created through these workshops will be published in an anthology available in the fall, to debut with a series of public performances, masterclasses by visiting veteran authors, and a keynote reading by Karl Marlantes (Matternhorn, What It Is Like To Go To War.)

This year’s writings and workshops will revolve around the theme of, “Homecoming.” If you would like to be a part of the Veterans Writing Program, just fill out the intake survey and you will be contacted by a program administrator about upcoming workshop availability.
