I wrote this thing about MTV’s new Scream series (I’m not so sure about it), some ideas I have for the show, and how I think MTV should probably hire me as one of their writers for this series.
I have been playing with the idea of doing a storytelling thing in Boston, but haven’t quite got that off the ground yet.
In the meantime, I still love the idea of storytelling especially when there are specific themes to the storytelling. I have created a site for short non-fiction/fiction writing that I am keeping semi-secret at the moment or at least until I have the first set of stories to post.
If you are interested in contributing to this thing, read the details and contact me with ideas or thoughts or whatever.
OK, so now what am I looking for?
I am looking for seven stories from seven different people. Writers may submit short fiction/non-fiction (1,500 words maximum) either in the body of an email, a word doc, or as an .rtf attachment to email@example.com.
The theme for the first set of stories should all have to do with ‘Firsts’. A pretty simple theme, but let’s just go with it since it’s the first set of things that’ll be on the site. There is ONE other requirement: your story must include pizza. Why pizza? Well, I mean I love pizza, but I have other reasons that’ll be clear later. Your story can bet set in a pizza place, have your characters eating pizza, or even just a simple mention of it somewhere in the story however you want to do it, but it has to be in there somewhere.
Be sure to send a short bio, including any recent or upcoming publication credits and your website link.
I interviewed the four women from the Black Girls Talking podcast. If you haven’t heard it yet, this is a podcast you should be listening to.
I wrote this thing about my experiences & thoughts about marriage.
I wrote this thing about this Dad writing his son’s coming out letter and included some of my own thoughts about the whole thing.

I wrote this thing and you could read it.
I wrote this thing about unfollowing/unfriending people on social media and included a short story about how one of my boys unfriended someone by accident on minecraft (there was a little drama).
