Presenter submissions for 2019 are open!

The Telling Tales Selection Committee is eager to hear your ideas for our 11th season in 2019. Annually, we showcase over 35 of Canada’s leading children’s authors, illustrators, storytellers and musicians.

Telling Tales will have three signature events in 2019. The Telling Tales Festival takes place on Sunday, September 15th, 2019, at Westfield Heritage Village in Rockton, Ontario. Plans are in the works for Telling Tales Teen Tales and a new nature-literacy themed event. Presenters selected for 2019 may receive further invitations to attend our community and school program that runs throughout the school year.  As part of the submission process, please include your interest in participating in these events.

2019 submissions will be accepted until December 30, 2018.

We are aiming to have the 2019 line-up confirmed in March 2019. Thank you to all those who submit an application, however, due to the volume of interest in participating, only presenters who have been selected will be notified.
