Shout out to John “Dagger John” Hughes for letting us crash at his place for the night!
I couldn’t take pix of the meeting (my phone ran out of memory b/c of Bono), so here’s a picture of jdjh I found on the googly moogly:
This also showed up
Anyway, tonight’s prompt was setting as character. I brought up East of Eden by Steinbeck, because it rocks and the Salinas Valley has a distinct personality and role in the novel. I challenged y’all to challenge yourselves to explore the personalities of places, and how they effect us.
I hope you guys continue what you started tonight. And all the folks at home, order some Panda XXXpress & give this prompt a try.
xx Prez Ali
p.s. send your cool/finished pieces ready for zine-ing to Emily at firstname.lastname@example.org, & stuff you want to workshop to email@example.com. We’ll add it to the queue.
Thanx to everyone who came to our first meeting!
Special thanx for chilling in the heat.
Our prompt was six word stories.
Try it out on your own if you couldn’t make it. Try it out again even if you could, and did.
It’s gr8 to exercise the art of distilling your thoughts. It WILL improve your poetry or prose.
Check out these dope 6-word-stories by famou$ authors after the jump!

Well here we are again, friends. Another issue of the Vagabond fresh off the digital printing press.
The Vagabond makes for a great conversation topic at Easter brunch! Everyone young and old loves it! Definitely! Trust me!
This issue has:
- Festive Bunnies
- A Dead thing
- Words like “pandemonium” and “noodles”
- No mention of your Aunt Cheryl’s freeloader ex-husband, so she hopefully won’t go into a rant that ruins Easter dinner like last year.
- AND MUCH MORE!!!
ANOTHER DELICIOUS EDITION
THIS IS NOT YOUR GRANDMA’S VAGABOND
SO YOU SHOULD PRINT ONE OUT AND GIVE ONE TO HER
Presenting the March 2014 Vagabond for your reading pleasure. Its loving embrace will keep you warm until the sun decides to get its act together. Fear not, it will be frisbee throwing weather soon. Until then, toss this issue of The Vagabond across the lawn to your friends. Maybe print it out first. And maybe don’t throw it. Gently hand it to your friends.
The Vagabond is my favorite flavor.
But wait! There’s more!
This collage features excerpts from Fordham’s very own the paper and The Fordham Ram. Go check them out. They do good work.
Everybody knows that when push comes to shove, nothing feels better than feeling the love.
Presenting the February 2014 issue of The Vagabond! Even if you don’t have someone to hold tonight, you at least have The Vagabond. The Vagabond is always here for you. Always. <3
If you don’t see your submission in this issue, fear not, for it will be published at a later date. Everything will be okay, my dear. Do you want a back rub? Come here.
Can you feel it? Can you feel the love? Nothing feels better than feeling the love.
