Presenter submissions for 2019 will open in the fall.

Annually, we showcase over 35 of Canada’s leading children’s authors, illustrators, storytellers and musicians. The Telling Tales Selection Committee is eager to hear your ideas for our 11th season in 2019. First and foremost, we must know that the presenter has proven presentation skills. To support this please complete the submission form as fully as possible.

2019 submissions will be accepted between October 2018 until December 31, 2018.

We are aiming to have the 2019 line-up confirmed in March 2019 at which point we will ramp up our marketing efforts including an extensive social media plan that has been designed to extend the festival experience before and long after the festival weekend.

Telling Tales is growing. In addition to the annual Festival in September, we offer a variety of workshops and events throughout the year.  As part of the submission process, please include your interest in participating in this exciting new piece of the Telling Tales story.

Printed material and sample copies may be sent to:

Thank you to all those who submit an application, however, due to the volume of interest in participating in the festival, only selector presenters will be notified.

Thank you in advance for helping us to make the 11th season of Telling Tales the best yet!
