We believe in the power to dream. But dreamers often look behind, from whence they’ve come, and Cargo asks us to slow down and consider our past for a moment. Consider that it is waiting for us. Cargo Literary explores the things that we carry: the images, the stories, and the scenes that make us who we are today. Traveling invites us to shift our perspectives and asks us to draw upon the unfamiliar.”

Vine Leaves

DEADLINE: 8/31/2015  

SUBMISSION FEE: NONE

NOTES: “’Vignette’ is a word that originally meant ‘something that may be written on a vine-leaf.’ It’s a snapshot in words. It differs from flash fiction or a short story in that its aim does not lie within the realms of traditional structure or plot. The vignette focuses on one element, mood, character, setting or object. It’s descriptive, excellent for character or theme exploration and wordplay. Through a vignette, you create an atmosphere.”

FORMS:  Prose, poetry, script

PAYMENT: None
