VAMP: Parasites

Deadline for submissions: Sunday, May 3rd

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 THE grossest show we’ve ever done, but it’ll probably come close.

VAMP: It’s Always the Quiet Ones

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.

In memory of Steve Kowit

We honor a true master–the poet laureate of San Diego to those in the know–the great Steve Kowit. Steve was a ferocious and fearless advocate for peace and the oppressed, themes which appear continuously throughout his substantial and beautiful body of work. He motivated many souls to fully and better embrace the grace he saw and nurtured within them through his teaching, and left everyone–man woman child and animal–better for having known him. He departed peacefully in his sleep at his home in the rural and wild part of San Diego’s East County he loved this week, a place some of us had the privilege of visiting and where we were able to record him reading in the videos below. His life was a story he lived as well as he told. Goodnight, friend.

The Radvocate Issue #13 – Coming May 2015 from SSWA Press!

I’m proud to announce that the long-awaited Issue #13 will be released from SSWA Press in May 2015. So Say We All is a literary and performing arts non-profit organization whose mission is to create opportunities for individuals to tell their stories, and tell them better. We achieve this through three core priorities: publishing, performance, and education. SSWA Press works tirelessly and with ink-smudged fingers to publish original anthologies, experimental collectivist novels, and more that contain the works of San Diego-based emerging writers alongside nationally recognized authors.

The Radvocate worked informally alongside So Say We All for many years. We’ve done many shows and collaborations together. As a zine, The Radvocate felt it had accomplished all it could, so it proposed the idea of joining forces to create a new kind of literary arts journal. So Say We All was willing to step up to the plate and make this issue happen. What you will find is paperback-bound, properly formatted journal filled with new, experimental work. This is the result of an incredible team working together for almost six months to create something that both The Radvocate and SSWA have never accomplished before.

Keep an eye on both websites, FB pages and Twitters for more updates!

Signup for the San Diego Community College Veteran Writers Group

A new Veteran Writers Group comes to the San Diego City College campus this spring, free and open to all veteran students currently enrolled in the San Diego Community College District; City, Mesa, Miramar, or Continuing Ed. Sessions will meet every two weeks on Thursdays at 2:30pm, from March 12th to May 14th, followed by a showcase for participants to perform (optional.)

Spring 2015’s VWP will include guided discussion, free writes, group  read and critiques, 1-1 coaching, and editing, all on the very open to interpretation prompt of, “Transitions.” By the end, you’ll have a story ready to submit for publication.

Anything goes, as long as you’re dedicated to making your creative writing better and are open to helping other vets do  the same.
