October. The month of All Hallows, and a time of ghostly goings-on and hideous hauntings. To mark the time of year, StoryFest SL will be holding the 2nd annual BOOFest on Sunday October 21st, at Bran, and are seeking those willing to participate and recite tales of terror in a 30 or 60 minute time slot.
Presenters can tell original tales of their own, or opt to read seasonal favourites and classics, or share those dark tales by authors perhaps not so well-known. The only requirements are that presentations fit the requested time slot and are given live (no pre-recordings).
If you would like to participate, forward a notecard to either Caledonia Skytower or Dubhna Rhiadra with the following information:
- Your name
- The length of the time slot you’ll like (30 or 60 minutes)
- Whether you are performing solo or with others (please include their names),
- The piece you intend to present if you know it (not vital, as long as the organisers know by October).
- Time of day preference or any time constraints that need to be considered when scheduling you.
Note that there will be limited rezzing during the event, and there will be no streaming – it’s just a blazing fire, an audience – and your voice! Submissions are open now, and will remain open until September 30th.
Already scheduled to appear are:
So if you have a favourite ghostly tale or wicked recital you’d like to give, be sure to drop Caledonia or Dubhna a line. For those that enjoy a good spooky tale, why not make a date in your diary and pop along to Bran?
All tips and gratuities from BOOFest will benefit War Child North America, and Branwen Arts.
