The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow is partnering with “Tales from the South” to do a live broadcast, distributed nationally on public radio via KUAR in Little Rock, and internationally via satellite, featuring all local Eureka Springs stories and talent.
“Tales” creator and producer, Paula Morell, will conduct a workshop on Sunday, May 5, 2013, at 1 p.m. at The Writers’ Colony, 515 Spring Street, Eureka Springs. During the workshop, Morell will teach participants how to write their true “Tale” for the show, how to present it on radio, and discuss the story submission process. Cost for the workshop is $25.
The stories must be based in Eureka and told from personal experience. Once the stories are selected, Morell will work with the local storytellers to prepare them for a live broadcast on Sunday, June 16, 2013. The radio show will be open to the public and broadcast from Caribe.
Paula Morell created “Tales from the South” in 2005 to showcase "southern-style storytelling". It has grown to be an internationally broadcast mainstay of the literary scene.
Paula Martin Morell has been teaching creative writing for more than 20 years, and her short stories, poetry, and creative nonfiction have won numerous regional, national, and international awards. Three times she has been featured as an emerging writer at the International Conference on the Short Story in English. Her critically acclaimed novel-in-stories was published in 2006, and her writing workshop Invoking the Gifts is being used in recovery centers nationwide. She started "Tales" and Temenos Publishing Company, a small literary press, in 2005. Morell and her husband, Jason, own the Starving Artist Café in Little Rock, where the show’s broadcast hub is located.
The "Tales from the South: Eureka Stories" public program is all about stories, music, and ideas connecting people to people through personal experiences, history, traditions, and philosophy. The stories written may stimulate ideas and memories from the audience to explore their own cultural heritage and shared community experiences. The stories may provide insight into the community, our history and our cultural evolution.
