Wisdom has a voice is a multimedia project which aims to gather, record and express daughters' memories of their mothers. Stories of these memories will be compiled into an anthology due for release in October 2011.
"We are looking for personal narratives that demonstrate the art of storytelling and possess a story arc with dramatic appeal. We will select stories that weave the significance of the unique experience into the storyline. Each selection should adapt easily to the spoken word as an audio version.
"We will look for the wisdom or lesson learned from mother to be expressed in an authentic voice with originality and resonance."
If your story is included in the anthology you will receive:
- a complimentary copy of the anthology with the option to purchase extra copies at a discounted price,
- an option to record your story as a podcast on the Wisdom Has A Voice site,
- mentions in promotional media,
- your photo/bio posted on the website and in the book.
You can find the entry guidelines and form here. The deadline for submissions is 1st February 2011.
