Telling Tales FAQ

Can I keep in touch with Telling Tales?

Our Dragonfly Newsletter is a great way to get monthly updates on Telling Tales. Subscribe by visiting our Dragonfly Monthly page. Connect with us on social media too!

Can my school arrange for a visit from a Telling Tales author?

Absolutely. There is more information on our School Programs page. Many schools have partnered with Telling Tales to bring an author (or two) to their school. We work closely with School Councils who frequently use their funding for parental engagement and/or their Parents Reaching Out (PRO) grants to host Telling Tales Family Literacy Events. Schools can also enter Telling Tales Contests for a chance to win  a visit from one of our authors.

Can Telling Tales participate in my community event?

We are always looking to expand our reach in the community. Please contact  for more information on availability and fees. We pay our presenters fairly and so require a modest fee to help us cover our basic costs.

How do I find out more about the festival?

You can visit our Explore the Festival section on our website that includes all the information you’ll need.

Can I sponsor the literacy work that Telling Tales does?

Of course!  We are grateful to our many partners who donate funds, services, products and time. Visit our partnership opportunities page for further information!

Who are the Friends of Telling Tales?
