September VAMP Showcase: Wild Kingdom

Submission deadline: Aug 31st. Submit at http://www.sosayweallonline.com.

After literally years of being asked, threatened, and begged to do a show about animals, behold. September stories are about the cute little bags of murder we call our cats, the dogs we’re never quite sure are all there, and all the other animals that have made our brief little lives on this planet so much weirder.

July VAMP showcase: Hair (No Really, This is a Show About Hair)

You’ve got it on your head, in your ears, between your legs, and you’ll spend more time and money fussing with it in your lifetime than you probably will teaching your kids how to not be douchebags. Statistically speaking. So let’s all come down round the proverbial campfire this July and give the follicle its due. Stories about hair, any kind, any where.

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.

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

March VAMP Showcase: “This Is Not My Story (because I wrote the story of someone else)”

1970598_10152757952556164_1915350311_n

Time taken up by navel-gazing is often time well spent, if it means we get a glimpse of insight into how we tick. But sometimes we just need to get out of our heads, toss narcissism into the fire, and pay out attention to someone else! March’s VAMP is open to stories on any topic, as long as the focus is on a person or persons not the author. Let the gonzo journalism commence!

Featuring:
Lizz Huerta
Neil McDevitt
Julia Dixon Evans
Peter Holslin
Leon Dekelbaum
Suzanne Hoyem
JD Burke
