Storytelling Workshops & Contest

     Midland Storytelling Festival will stage a contest for youth tellers in three age categories. Prizes have been donated and our winners will share the stage with acclaimed nationally recognized teller, Donald Davis for the Friday Night “Preview” Community Program.

     Got a story? How does your family celebrate the holidays? What are the festivities like?  Is there some special story that  has been passed on from generation to generation in your family? Maybe there is a sacred story associated with your observances. It could even be your version of a favorite fairy tale. Those stories give wonderful insights that help us to develop our understanding about the unique and wonderful differences we all have that contribute to our complex society.

     Deadline for entry in the contest is October 17, 2016. Workshops prior to the contest will be conducted by local teller, Sue Roseberry, on the following dates at the downtown branch of the Midland County Public Library (301 W. Missouri, Midland, TX 79701)
Tuesday, October 18 5:00 - 6:15 PM
Tuesday, October 25 5:00 - 6:15 PM
Tuesday, November 1 5:00 - 6:15 PM

Workshops and contest entry are free, but you must sign up to attend.

The contest will be held Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at 6:30 PM at Midland Shared Spaces (3500 North A Street, Midland, TX). Winners will be notified by November 30th and should be prepared to participate in the Preview Storytelling Performance to be held on December 9th at 7:00 PM.  Awards will be presented on December 9th.
