How to Bring Your Twitter Followers to Vocal
As crossposting becomes more difficult on Twitter, it’s important to let your followers know where they can find you and read your work. Vocal isn’t on Twitter’s list of banned social media networks (yet), so you’ve still got time to introduce your followers to your stories and convert them into loyal readers.

Improbable Paradise Challenge Winners
When thinking about winter we tend to give all the cold credit to December and January. But every year we're hit with February, that sneaky, hanger-on that blasts us with one final sweep of cold. That's why we thought it might be a good idea to send our Creators (and ourselves!) on a vacation of the mind to a tropical island. Of course, this being Vocal, we had to throw a twist into the prompt.Vocal Curation Team

Write Here, Write Now: The Not-Deer by Chelsea Catherine

Reset Your Password Challenge Winners
Over the past few years, passwords have gone from secret little words to full on equations. Passwords are now outsize, elaborate, forever shifting labyrinths, complex enough that they could never be guessed person or machine. And while this is fine and good (if annoying) for safety's sake, there's a more bizarre project in motion. Each time we change our passwords, we have to take something of ourselves, a memory, a habit, a favorite food, and put it into the digital ether. We have to dig even deeper than the last password, come up to the surface with another memory, another name or reference that means enough to us that we won't forget it but not too much that we will degrade it by making it into a password that will undoubtedly have to change after the next data breach. We gain access to online spaces by giving of our secret selves.
