VAMP: Parasites

Deadline for submissions: Sunday, May 5th

http://www.sosayweallonline.com/submissions/

Symbiosis can be a beautiful thing. Until it’s not. The flora and fauna of our blood and guts (and colons), our interpersonal relationships, and our cubicle mates all walk a delicate balance between helpfulness and sucking the life right out of us. Come join us for stories of parasites both microscopic and human-sized! It might not be grossest show we’ve ever done, but it’ll probably come close.

VAMP: It’s Always the Quiet Ones

Deadline for submissions: Sunday, April 5th, 2015

http://www.sosayweallonline.com/submissions/

You know the type. Maybe you are the type. Soft-spoken, kind-hearted, and politely reserved. And so much bottled up inside. Come join our storytellers as they marvel at that moment when all hell broke loose and the quiet one snapped.

Deadline for submissions: Sunday Feb 1st
http://www.sosayweallonline.com/submissions/

It’s back and dirtier than ever! In honor of Valentine’s Day, because we’re already tired of the charming side of human reproduction, we bring you our filthiest show. So Say We All’s annual Dirty Talk VAMP showcase promises a night of stories about what constitutes “dirt.” The raunchy stuff, the grit, and the things you do when nobody is around to Instagram it. Or maybe you’re into Instagramming that kind of thing. We don’t judge.

VAMP: Crime Pays

It only takes one look at the earnings portfolio of JP Morgan Chase to realize that maybe everything we were taught about crime not paying wasn’t entirely grounded in facts.

LGBTQ Storytellers do Valentines!

LGBTQ Storytellers Do Valentines
Stories Above Love-Gone-Weird Come to Martinis Above 4th
SAN DIEGO, CA

This February. So Say We All, a creative writing and performing arts non-profit, present “Love Confection,” a night of true stories from the LGBTQ community about love gone awry, headlined by author and comedic performer, Dave White, author of, “Exile in Guyville.”

Storytellers and writers from the LGBTQ community have been welcomed and featured in So Say We All’s storytelling showcases since the organization’s inception in 2009, but after launching a successful outreach program in 2014 to the veteran community that included free writing workshops through the Oceanside and Central Libraries, the organization found greater involvement in their programs came from directly courting groups that, as the organization’s Executive Director, Justin Hudnall, puts it, “Are more often talked about than heard from in the media.”

“It’s one thing to put out a welcome mat, but if you really want to be dedicated about working with all communities, you have to put your programs where the people are.”

Love Confection marks the first show by “Outspoken”, So Say We All’s LGBTQ outreach program, made possible through a gift from Brian and LJ Joyner.
