“Transformation” – Call for Contributions for World Storytelling Day!

March 20th is World Storytelling Day – a global celebration of the art of oral storytelling. Each year has a theme that people use to organize events, plan performances, and share stories all around the world. The theme of 2017 is Transformation.

In order to promote this wonderful event, and share resources by and for storytellers, we are calling for special contributions for the FEST blog on the theme of Transformation!?How you interpret the theme is up to you – you might want to write about the transformative power of storytelling, or the symbolism of shape-shifting in folklore, or your favorite fairy tale of change. You can also share links and sources about books or stories that fit the theme.

Send us your storytelling-related blog posts, articles, folktales, links, or other resources at !

Deadline for submissions is March 17th (Friday)

(Note: Contributions to the FEST blog in general are always open. The deadline is only for posts and articles specific to World Storytelling Day.)

Let’s transform the world one story at a time!
