World Storytelling Day is a global celebration of the art of oral storytelling. It is celebrated every year on the spring equinox in the northern hemisphere, the first day of autumn equinox in the southern. On World Storytelling Day, as many people as possible tell and listen to stories in as many languages and at as many places as possible, during the same day and night. Participants tell each other about their events in order to share stories and inspiration, to learn from each other and create international contacts.How do you host an event?
Easy! Your local storytelling group, festival, committee, or even an individual storyteller, can simply plan an event for March 20th, and promote it as part of World Storytelling Day.

I've made a change to the World Storytelling Day website at:http://worldstorytellingday.webs.com/apps/calendar/
Anyone who is a member of the site can add an event. If you are not a member, you can sign up on the site.
I did this because I am going to be travelling and working a lot over the next few months, so I won't be able to maintain the site as much as I have in previous years. So, the calendar is now in the hands of all of us!
Please start adding your events and good luck! If you have problems, send me an email.
