Ozark Story Project

A creative storytelling project focused on exploring the intersection of immigrant and traditional Ozark folklore through poetry, recipes, photos & recorded stories.

Beginning Monday, September 28, and each consecutive Monday for the following four weeks, we will introduce a new way for you to participate in the Ozark Story Project.

Anyone that has a relationship to the Ozarks is invited to participate. Regardless of where you were born, where you live today, or how long you’ve lived here.

Your story matters.
