The idea is to collect a good number of stories concerning European folklore, fairy tales, myths and legends, told by the people who know them best. With this we would like to present a testimonial of European history and culture from Portugal to Russia and from Turkey to Iceland. In the end we will combine these stories into a book which will emphasize the similarities as well as the differences between our cultures.
So far we have contacted many literary groups and societies around Europe and attracted writers from several countries. Although we are still a rather young project, we do have a fair number of hits on the site from day to day and several submissions from established writers. We can also be found on Twitter and interested parties can subscribe to our newsletter through the Contact form on your left.
Currently, we are looking into getting some funding from several institutions like the cultural branch of the European Union, UNESCO or the Gulbenkian Institute in Portugal. All these institutions have their own restrictions and rules which makes it tricky to apply, but we are confident we can turn this idea into a properly recognized project.
