We know there are many great women storytellers out there! If you know anyone who might be interested in sharing a story for this show’s theme of Law Enforcement, Firefighter, First Responder, Active Military and Veteran stories, please forward them our information. Story auditions are Sunday, April 2nd or by appointment. We are looking for stories of approx. 8 min, 10 min max. Stories must involve Alaska and our theme. That’s it!

We will eventually be building on our footage of the storytelling show to make a series of short documentaries of selected stories. Ultimately, our stories will be kept safe in the UAF’s Film Archives for generations to come : )

Thank you and Have a great day!
