From 1001 Nights to 2001 Story Resources: Stor e Telling 2013

Queen Scheherazade 
By Sophie Anderson, 19th Century
The tale of the Persian beauty Scheherazade is one all storytellers are familiar with, a woman who saved her own life by sharing 1000 stories by the end of 1001 nights. In 2003 I highlighted a website offering these tales in my column for Storytelling Magazine, and since then I have reviewed well over 2001 storytelling and educational websites, as well as individual folktales, fairy tales, myths and legends.

This year I posted all of my columns from 2013. I have listed them all below so they will be easier to locate. I have also begun rechecking all of the links in my columns from 2002-2006 and recently posted the very first article from January/February 2002 here: I invite you to return often for more resources as I continue to share my work.

Please let me if you find this useful in your work; thank you for stopping by!

January/February/March 2013
Sites to celebrate the New Year, tales of love to celebrate Valentine’s Day and others that celebrate the winter season.

April/May 2013
Pack your bags for a story filled trip around the globe to complement the Storytelling World issue. 

June/July 2013
Below are the sites I offered for the April/May 2013 issue. There are sites to complement the state of Virginia, location for the National Storytelling Conference in 2013, as well as sites to celebrate Thread the Needle Day, Adopt a Cat Month, Canada Day, Cow Appreciation and Yellow Pig Day, and two previous blogs to help you slide into summer! So much to celebrate and so little time! 

August/September 2013
The theme for this issue was Fairy Tales so you will find some wonderful articles and stories to complement the theme. 

October/November/December 2013
October is apple picking time in the USA so there is a basketful of apple tales and of course, resources for Halloween. In addition, November is National Novel Writing Month so there are sites with information to help you travel the publishing road, along with stories to celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas. I hope you find something to add to your repertoire. 

 And if you missed the previous blog posts offering additional columns from 2007-2012 visit the links below. But beware, there are so many wonderful sites you might feel like Alice falling down the rabbit hole and find it difficult to find your way out of the virtual, story-filled world!
