The secretariat of Iran’s 13th International Storytelling Festival has received over 1000 works from Iranian teachers.
The festival has been organized by the Institute for Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults (IIDCYA). However, it is also open to mothers, fathers, grandfathers and grandmothers to participate in the festival.

Only 30 works will be selected for the event, which will take place in late autumn and most likely in the central Iranian city of Yazd, IIDCYA announced in a press release published on Sunday. For the first time, participants will also be allowed to narrate their tales in English. However, the IIDCYA did not mention anything about the number of foreign participants. The festival has been organized to highlight the Chelleh Night (also known as the Yalda Night), which Iranians observe annually on December 21 to celebrate the longest night of the year. Eating fruits and nuts, Iranian people listen to stories usually narrated by their grandparents.
