What is Story Bosso?

Submit your story here!  

Aimed at reawakening a love of stories and reading among all South Africans, Story Bosso is Nal'ibali's annual multilingual storytelling talent search, where all South Africans – young and old – are invited to tell us a story about their hero.

This theme for this year is South African hero's. We encourage adults to remember and tell stories of their favourite South African legends, not only to educate their children, but to pass on some of the values they stood for too. Younger storytellers are invited to share a story of their own hero, or a fictional hero.

To support the campaign, regional storytelling events will take place in:

  • Eastern Cape
  • Kwa-Zulu Natal
  • Mpumalanga
  • Western Cape

Nal'ibali Literacy Mentors will also be hosting community events nationwide, where Story Bosso hopefuls will have the opportunity to play the Hero's board game and share their Hero's story.
