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.

VAMP Does Friday Night Liberty!

The spectacular monthly happening that transforms the decommissioned Naval Training Center into a bustling cornucopia of arts exhibitions (think of it as a mini-World’s Fair but without the wanton deaths of construction workers due to unsafe labor practices), and So Say We All has been invited to stage The VAMP Showcase as a featured event!

Greenroom Writers Workshop @ SDPL: “Too Good To Be True”

GreenRoom

We all want to believe that we’ve found something perfect, but usually we neglect to read the fine print. Let’s talk and write about those times when reality has shown us how delusional we really are.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our September VAMP showcase “Trouble in Paradise”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop: Scapegoats

936029_10151977313091164_1615360325_n

We all know (or have been) that poor schmuck who takes the blame and puts up with the harassment for no other reason then the crowd says he has to. Let’s talk and write about those times when one person has to be the fall guy.

(Optional viewing: this GreenRoom was partially inspired by the amazing documentary “Catching Hell”, part of ESPN’s “30 For 30″ series. It’s on Netflix, runs about an hour, and is awesome.)

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our October VAMP showcase “Mob Rules”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop, “None of us is as Dumb as All of us”

The Borg. Cults. Board meetings.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. You said yes. And then suddenly, there was kool-aid being passed around and you thought, “Wait a minute…”

Whether you were talked into it or realized it was happening too late, let’s explore what happens when you realize the hive mind isn’t as smart as you thought it was.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for our October VAMP showcase “Mob Rules”.

GreenRoom Writing Workshop: “Hello, Darkness, My Old Friend”

1382884_10152301260971164_2099599671_n

Autumn. It’s not all pumpkin spice lattes and foliage. It’s a time when shorter days give way to colder nights and everyone starts to feel the creepy, not-entirely-unpleasant tingles of Halloween. In this workshop, let’s talk and write about those times that we have looked into the darkness and saw something familiar.

This GreenRoom Writing Workshop will be a primer to help generate ideas for anybody who has lived or tried to write a scary story.
