The river is something that connects us all—and we’d love for you to share how you are connected to it or have connected with others through it through submitting to our storytelling and original music contest this spring (learn more about how to submit at: fnfsr.org/call-for-stories/). Take us on a part of your journey by sharing an experience from the river, an old tale passed down through generations related to it, or how the river has made an impact on your life. Experienced and novice storytellers and musicians are welcome to submit!
Friends of the North Fork is hosting a series of “Voices of the River – In Story and Song” this summer with storytelling and live music events at local breweries throughout the valley, and we plan to have several selected storytellers and/or musicians share their connections to the river at one or more of these events.
Tell us how you are connected to the river, perhaps through sharing:
- An experience on the river
- An old tale passed down through the generations
- How the river has made an impact on your life
To make a submission call our office at 540.459.8550 to leave a voicemail summary of your story (no more than 2-3 minutes for the summary), or email us a video summary or audio recording (no more than 2-3 mins) to [email protected] Please remember to also leave your name, phone number and email address with each story submission. You are welcome to make more than one story submission if you’d like.
If selected you will:
- Tell your full story (up to 8-10 minutes long) or perform your piece at one of three story and live music events throughout the summer
- Work with the Friends of the North Fork team to refine your story/music and prepare for event
Submission deadline: 11.59pm on April 30, 2021
Selected story tellers will be notified: May 14, 2021
