2015 StoryBook

"It is time
for all of us to
replace the old paradigm
of domination

problem-solving
and human ingenuity.


Bringing creativity

we cultivate
expressions of
The New Earth."

The St George Day Storybook is
a FREE annual publication that is a venue for writers and illustrators.
Many neighborhood artists, writers, businesses, activists and entrepreneurs have their messages seen in this free annual art magazine, for many moons beyond the festival.

All submissions are voluntary, and the publication work is voluntary.

STORYBOOK is a labor-of-love crafted by the folks at ETG Book Cafe, and printed by McKee High School graphic arts department.

STORYBOOK helps to further the expression of the important themes of St George Day.
BOOK THEMES INCLUDE: "Resiliency through sharing resources, Cooperation, Creative invention, Forgiveness, Working together to resolve conflict, Discovering commonality, Enemies become Allies.
And Dragons. "


A good length for short story and poem submissions for the STORYBOOK is up to 400 - 1000 words. Shorter is better! But longer is not out of the question. The poems and stories are paired with graphics that come from artwork contributers. (See previous editions for examples)

Artwork submissions for the inner pages will be reproduced in black and white (grayscale). If you send a digital image file, please keep the resolution fairly high 150-300 dpi. The pages are 5" wide and 8" high. Sometimes we lay out the artwork several to a page, and sometimes covering both pages of the page-spread, and that dimension is 10" wide and 8" high. The layout artist will adapt your image to suit the context which may include some editing. See the other issue PDFs linked below to see examples of that.

ALL CONTENTS of this book are property of each author/artist, who have contributed their work to help raise consciousness needed in the world at this time.
