Workshop and Fringe Performance
Deadlines: October 23, 2017

The 33rd Annual Texas Storytelling Festival will be held March 8-11, 2018. Two outstanding parts of the Festival are the Workshops and the Fringe Performances.

Thinking about a workshop you would like to present? Interested in challenging your muse by creating a fringe performance? The time is now to let us know you would like to participate in the Texas Storytelling Festival.

Don't miss this great personal and professional opportunity!

Workshop Proposals
Workshops at the Festival are 90 minutes in length and cover a wide range of topics that help our participants grow as storytellers and listeners. If you have a great idea for a presentation, be sure to submit a proposal. Remember that many of the people that attend the Festival are storytellers, but there are also educators and librarians, clergy, and therapists. The Workshop Selection Committee is eager to hear from you.

Fringe Performance Proposals
The maximum length of any story in the Fringe Performance is 20 minutes. Performances can be on any imaginable topic from edgy to enlightening. The storytellers are selected by a random drawing to fill slots in the Fringe Fest block. This is your big chance to strut your stuff! So, don't let the opportunity pass you by.

More Details
You may submit a workshop proposal and a fringe performance proposal, but you may present only one (if both are selected). Please indicate your preference on the forms. Storytellers chosen will need to register and pay for the full festival or a full day admission. After the workshop presenters will be mailed a check.

Submit forms to the producers of each event. Contact information is also on each form:
Workshops - Carolina Quiroga-Stultz at carolinastoryteller@outlook.com.
Fringe- Fran Stallings at fran.stallings@icloud.com.

Remember deadline for proposals is October 23, 2017.

Dear Tejas Storytelling Association and Friends of TSA,

We are looking for 70 dedicated and techno-savvy folks to step forward and pledge $10 a month for 10 months to help get the new TSA Accessible Website up and running. Can you be one of those 70 folks? That is about 25% of our current membership. Of course, we will welcome more! But, at this moment, 70 pledges of $100 over the next 10 months will get us to our goal of having an accessible website up and running for all to see. (Your pledge may be paid in one payment if you choose.)

Accessibility on websites is not automatic. For people with visual, auditory and physical issues, it can be quite challenging to access information about TSA from our present website. And, accessibility does not come cheap. However, after careful consideration and research, we have come to a decision about the folks who can accomplish this for us. Now, all we need are the funds.

And why is accessibility so important? Think about this. TSA prides itself on the fact that we have always provided American Sign Language (ASL) signers to assist those who cannot hear to still fully enjoy our festival events. This is not true of our present website, but that can be fixed by the building and launching of an accessible website. And, that is our final aim in this fund raising effort.

So, will you not please consider becoming a TSA Techie? Support our efforts. Pledge 10-4-10!

In return for your support, we pledge to each of you who donate to this fundraiser a fully accessible business card ad on our new website for the first two years that it is up and running. Think of it: a business card-sized ad that runs for 24 months at a cost of $100. That is only $50 a year. Now, that is a bargain. Plus, you get a tax write-off and the joy of knowing that you have contributed to such a worthy cause.

This is the season for giving. Please consider us as a recipient of your giving!

All the blessings of the Season,
The Officers and Board of TSA​
