Welcome to The Wildling Story Booth

Your story matters, and we want to hear it. The Wildling Story Booth is a special project in partnership with filmmaker Maribeth Romslo to capture youth audio stories that shape who we are.

Story Booth Capsules

We use “Capsules” – collections of audio stories around themes – to organize Story Booth submissions and story showcases.

In our first Capsule, "Growing Up in a Pandemic," storytellers shared their personal thoughts and experiences from the heart of the pandemic. The stories range from tear-jerking tales of worry to triumphant social relationships and wacky isolation memories. You can listen to stories from the “Growing Up in a Pandemic” showcase.

Our second Capsule, “Let’s Talk About Race”, is an invitation to tell stories about how race and racism impact you. Sharing our stories about race and racism is important: In understanding how they are working in our lives, we can hopefully connect more deeply with others, and in doing so take away some of their power.

Both Capsules are accepting stories to add to the collections. The first 25 storytellers in each Capsule will receive an honorarium for their participation upon publication.

We would love to hear your perspective.
