Ozark Story Project

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

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.

Our next Ozark Social will take place in spring 2022.
Do you have a story to share about miracles?

Miracles can be big or small. If you’d like to share a story, spoken word, performance piece, song, etc. please email amber@amberperrodin.com


If there’s any evidence that the Ozarks hold any magic at all, the proof is in the kitchen. From well-worn recipes to fusion experiments, the Ozarks house some of the most delightful southern cuisine and international flare – sometimes in the same meal.
