Texas Storytelling Festival
March 10-13, 2022

Call for Applications

You are invited to participate in the 37th Annual City of Denton Texas Storytelling Festival, “YeeHaw! Back In the Saddle Again!”

An application must be submitted in order to participate in the Festival’s Story Slam, Liars Contest, Fringe Performance, Workshop Presentation, and our newest category, Original Poetry.

Different this year will be the process in which applicants are selected. We will choose the number of applicants that can be accommodated by our Festival Schedule from the entries. Should we have more applicants over the limit, we will have a preliminary Liars Contest and Story Slam, probably in January via Zoom. The judged winners will be invited to attend the Festival (at their own expense) and present their entry in person.

If more Workshop and Fringe applications are received than fit our festival schedule, we will choose the ones for the festival, and other applicants may be contacted to present a Zoom Workshop or Fringe Concert in the months following the Festival. Your willingness to present via zoom can be notated on the application.

The deadline to get your application in for all categories is Friday, October 1, 2021.

Each set of applications will then go to a committee to make decisions and you will be contacted approximately the 3rd week of October about the selections.

We look forward to hearing from you!
