So Say We All

Nearly February 2012 Newsletter

The big news this installment fulfills a goal we've had since we started SSWA three years ago: Beginning in May 2012, Justin Hudnall of So Say We All and Professor Sydney Brown of The Grossmont College Creative Writing Program will co-teach "How To Write a True War Story" at Grossmont College, a veterans-only creative writing workshop which will culminate in a showcase series of veteran's work headlined by visiting best-selling author and Vietnam Veteran Tim O'Brien (The Things They Carried.)

In tandem with the Grossmont class, Justin and So Say We All will be offering the same course to another group of veterans in Oceanside, in partnership with the Veterans Writing Group of San Diego (VWG-SD). That's two classes, two groups of vets, two showcases and a visit from Tim O'Brien. We're hoping this turns into a regular program, maybe even a Veteran Writers Festival. The biggest of thanks in making this happen go to Sydney Brown for being so generous, talented, altruistic and somewhat magical in her ability to make really important things happen in-between e-mails, and to Gail Chatfield, for her tireless devotion to providing a platform for veterans of all ages to tell their story and have it heard. We're honored to serve with these women.

We fundraise to keep these and other programs cheap as possible or outright free to artists and students. So lock and load sugarpants! We need you to:

Greenroom Writers Workshop: “History Repeating”

February's free writers workshop focuses on the phenomenon of history coming back to haunt us. Are you watching in horror as you become your parents? Are you struck by a sense of deja vu? Are you fascinated or obsessed with recurring themes in your life? Well then this is the writing session for you. All of this has happened before and all of this will happen again, but only on Thursday Feb 2nd will we be writing about it. Come for in-class generative writing and discussion or bring in a piece on theme to have us workshop with you.

February Long Story Short: “The Evil Ex!”

February’s all-inclusive story time show sits around the crackling fire of wack-a-doo, good-riddance, I’ll-bill-you-for-my-therapy-later, barely-dodged-that-bullet ex-boyfriends and girlfriends, husbands and wives, and lovers that reminded us why love is so often referred to as a battlefield. Come share, it’s safe in here and catharsis loves company! May our dish run deep!

Bawdy Storytelling’s “Dirty Minds Tour” in SD!

Bawdy Storytelling features real people sharing their bona fide sexual exploits in 10 minutes or less: think of us as a One Night Stand with the Moth & Savage Love. Storytellers are an eclectic mix of authors, porn stars, comedians, sex educators and actors, along with a handful of real people just like you who submitted their stories online and were chosen for their panache and sense of misadventure. Each evening of true dirty stories features tales of carnal wins and epic fails with no scripts, no nets, and no holds barred. You may even go home with a few new tricks for your boudoir arsenal!
