World Storytelling Day

Are you sitting comfortably? Then I’ll begin.

Today is World Storytelling Day. Originally from Sweden, this is held each year on the spring equinox in the Northern Hemisphere (and on the autumn equinox for our readers in the Southern). Here’s the blog and website which has details on the history of World Storytelling Day, themes, events and activities around the world:

And if you fancy being a storyteller yourself why not have a go at the Bridport Prize? For poems and short stories, this is one of the most prestigious writing competitions:

And if you do win, get snapped up by an agent, have a lucrative publishing deal followed by fame, fortune and film rights, perhaps you could recommend your friends at Thing of the Day to those in high places…
