Please indicate which show you are submitting to in the title of your piece.
Submit here for SSWA's monthly VAMP (Visual Art, Music, Performance) Showcase only. Please include a brief bio and your e-mail in the comments section when submitting. VAMPs are usually, unless otherwise noted, held on the last Thursday of the month.
Work should fall between 5-10 minutes in length. Between 140-160 words per minute is an average guide. Style, voice, and literary form can vary widely, but we're looking for true, non-fiction stories that involve a transformation (of you, a character, a place, etc.) and offer an insight that we can relate to.
Please be aware that there is a rehearsal and critique process for all accepted VAMP submissions. Rehearsals & crits are MANDATORY. If your piece is accepted and you can't make the first scheduled rehearsal, please let us know right away. All reasonable accommodations will me made. We want you to give the best performance possible when we put you on stage.
All scripts are read and voted on by a blind peer review panel comprised of individuals who have performed at previous VAMP Showcases, to ensure bias or nepotism does not affect the selection process. Therefore, please DO NOT PUT YOUR NAME ON YOUR SCRIPT.
Thanks, good luck, and please don't be disheartened if you aren't selected. I founded this organization and I've been rejected twice myself now. If you'd like feedback or have comments, feel free to contact me at email@example.com, just know that I never read the scripts myself.

Our advice is to focus on telling a specific story that stands all on its own, and from which the reader can glean information or aesthetic sense about the region.
Multiple-file uploads should be condensed into a zip file. All submissions to The Far East Project will be considered for BOTH print and electronic publication.
Please include a brief bio in the coverletter section of the submissions page.
DEADLINE: July 1st, 2013
