Introducing the 2021 Story Fair

Written word has a special place in the heart of the uplands.
Our hope in hosting this first-ever event is to bring forth generations of wit and wisdom, laughs and lamentations and with any luck some words we can all enjoy by the fireside as our nights grow longer.

We invite a wide range of topics at your discretion. It might be your favorite hunt, the night “Ol Bessy” broke down up north, or the doodle that outsmarted your best dog – as if!

Submissions accepted through November 30, 2021
