“Good stories happen to those who can tell them” Ira Glass.
They capture and fascinate, take us to a different time and place and can show our world through new eyes.
Good storytelling entertains, teaches and unites. It brings people together to imagine and explore.
Storytold is a new venture that needs your stories. Our team are curating exciting events in the coming months where we will share some of the submissions we receive.
What’s the theme?
Do you remember the first time? Do you remember the last?
For the first Storytold event, we’d love to hear your story, imaginary or real life, about the first or the last, beginnings or endings. The last talking forest, a break-up or your granny’s first parachute jump, any first or last can be the inspiration for your tale.
Words. Pictures. Sounds
There are no limits to the form these can take. Let your imagination lead you, whether that means an essay via email, a text message conversation, or even a recording of a poem.
The events will be inspired by the submissions we receive. Anyone with a story, a passion for telling them or simply a love for listening is invited to join us at these events. You don’t even have to present them yourself, just send them to us and one of our storytellers can do it for you.
Share your story
Please send your submission, in whatever form, to firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to Millie Findlay, Sense Worldwide, 68-70 Wardour Street, London W1F 0TB.
Entries should be submitted by 29th of July 2011.
If you or someone you know has something to share but can’t find a way in which to tell it, we’d love to hear from you to see if we can help. Please get in touch.
