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

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!

Julia Dixon Evans

There’s a soundtrack to our lives and now with the beauty of the little pod-robot, we can listen to it in real time.

Gather around the table, everybody! It is time to cut the ceremonial meat, over-indulge in the eggnog concoctions, and dig into the true stories of what it means to be surrounded by family and loved ones during the holidays. Would you like an extra helping of comfort food or to put a dinner fork through your annoying uncle’s eye? Either way, we’ve got a place for you at the fire.
