Veteran Writers: Homecoming @ Oceanside Library

Join us for the inaugural showcase of So Say We All’s Veteran Writers Program, featuring men and women across several generations of military service detailing the poignant, surprising, and darkly funny struggles, missteps, and unforeseen pitfalls that come with transitioning from military to civilian life. Every veteran has a story, but you’ll be floored by where this troupe takes you.

October VAMP: “Scared Sh*tless! (vol.5)

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: Monday October 5th.

So many things divide the human race and make us different, but at our core we all sleep, eat, and–unless we live in a bubble paid for by a trust fund of helicopter parenting shelter–fill our pants from terror at least a couple times in our lives. It’s good for us. Puts life in perspective. If we survive.

For 5 years in a row now, stories of thrill-seeking, mortal danger, adrenaline rushes, terror, pranks, and other varied and open interpretations of the theme make everyone’s October feel really really Octobery down at the VAMP Showcase.

September VAMP Showcase: Wild Kingdom

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.
