"Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time...." begin many evenings of story-telling in homes in all corners of the world. These tales narrated to children may be in many tongues, but the voices behind them are usually of grown-ups telling stories written by other grown-ups. This time around, it will be the children writing their own stories.
ThinkArts invites children from South Asia and Switzerland (age 6 to 9) to share their stories written in response to our prompts. These prompts have been carefully selected from children's stories. From here, you can take it on! While the prompts are in English, the stories submitted by you can be written in any South Asian language of your choice. Your submission may also be accompanied by drawings and paintings made by you. Children in Switzerland can also send in their creations in German, French, Italian and Romansch. These will then be brought to life in the form of audio-stories and illustrations made by professional story-tellers and artists. These creations along with your story and credits will be published on the ThinkArts website.
So, do you want to tell us a story? All the prompts are now up on our website in English and German. Feel free to choose a prompt that tickles your imagination and send us your story! Please note that your story can be written in any language of your choice.
