Storytelling Workshops & Contest

     Storytelling Workshops & Contest Midland Storytelling Festival will stage a contest for youth tellers. Prizes will be awarded and the 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 15, 2019. Workshops prior to the contest will be conducted by local teller, Sue Roseberry, on the following dates at Library at the Plaza (301 W Missouri Ave.) located in the Community Room.
     Tuesday, October 15 5:30 PM
     Tuesday, October 22 5:30 PM
     Tuesday, October 29 5:30 PM
     Tuesday, November 5 5:30 PM
     Workshops and contest entry are FREE. Call 432-685-3876 to register. Entry forms should be turned in at the workshop.
     The contest will be held Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 6:30 PM at Midland Shared Spaces (3500 North A Street, Midland, TX). Winners will be notified by November 25th and should be prepared to participate in the Preview Storytelling Performance to be held on December 6th at 7:00 PM.
