Background

Stealing an idea from National Public Radio, the Ansteorran Story Corps is a collection of stories provided by the populace. A storytelling prompt is sent out via social media and the Kingdom email list. Participants are invited to share their stories relating to that topic. Those are collected and organized here.

Individuals are invited to respond to any current or past story prompt - items can be sent in to the wiki administrator (Zubeydah@gmail.com) or to the kingdom historian (historian@chronicler.ansteorra.org).
