The Monash Fairy Tale Salon in Melbourne are running a  fairy tale event in Melbourne on June 29th and are currently calling for papers, readings and performances.

This will be the Monash group's third annual fairy tale event and looks set to be a wonderful day.

Australian Fairy Tale Day - Call for Participation

 As part of the Glen Eira Storytelling Festival, the Monash Fairy Tale Salon will be hosting a day exploring fairy tale migrations, with a special focus on Australian tales. Fairy tales cross oceans and continents. How do people carry their tales with them? How are tales transformed by migration? In particular, how have fairy tales come here to Australia and how is our own fairy tale tradition based on migration?
This Melbourne event explores many of the ideas that will be raised at the Australian Fairy Tale Society conference to take place on June 9 in Sydney.
The day is open to academic papers as well as fairy tale readings and performances. For the bold at heart, come dressed as your favourite fairy tale character and be in the running to win a prize! This event is open to anyone who has a love of fairy tales, and will take place at the Theatrette, Glen Eira Town Hall, on Sunday June 29.
We are looking for interested participants who would like to present original work and/or papers on fairy tales. Preference will be given to material dealing with or inspired by Australian themes, but other material will certainly be considered.
Areas of interest:
o   Scholarly analysis of fairy tale (incl. literary studies, translation studies, film & TV, drama studies, gender studies)
o   Live performance of fairy tale (incl. new & established fairy tales)
o   Fairy tale readings (incl. new & established fairy tales)

Please send a 100-200 word summary or abstract to arts-fairytale@monash.edu by May 10.
