June Theme: Best Vacation

June Theme: Best Vacation

Punxsutawney Phil may have predicted six more weeks of winter for this year, but we're skipping over that part and looking toward summer. That's because our June bundle is going to have a theme, and we want to give you plenty of time to come up with a submission for it! Our theme for June is "Your Best Summer Vacation or Road Trip" and how you interpret that is up to you. 

Will you tell a thrilling autobiographical story about an ancient station wagon racing against time to reach Disneyland before your day pass expires? Or maybe a wistful poem about the solitude and serenity you experienced in a mountain campsite? A cool collage made from cut up brochures for roadside attractions? The sky's the limit, so get those ideas flowing! 

If the theme doesn't jive with the thing you want to submit, that's okay. You're not required to follow the theme if you don't want to. We like to include periodic themed bundles to help break the curse of the blank canvas and invite more people to participate in the bundle. 

Please make sure 145 copies of your submission is received by our Mailer no later than June 6th, 2022 to be included in the "Your Best Summer Vacation or Road Trip" bundle. We look forward to seeing your submissions!
