8th Nicosia Book Fest

Open Call

for submission of a presentation proposal to the Children's Stage

General Info


In the festival we create a specially designed space for presentations of Children's Literature and literary activities for children which operates in parallel with the program for adults.


We openly invite people who wish to submit a children’s presentation proposal. A total of 18 children's presentations will be presented during the two-day weekend of the festival on October 07-08, 2023.


Proposals can be submitted by writers, teachers, children's entertainers, artists who wish to present on the children's stage of the festival a 40-minute program inspired by the children's book.


We urge that the way of presentation be interactive and creative and include various media and methodologies (for example music, creative handcrafts, dance, theatrical play, presentations, workshops, knowledge game) engaging children during the presentation in a meaningful manner.


Proposals to be submitted may be for presentations to be performed in the English or Turkish language, although bear in mind that only few will be considered to be presented as the vast majority of young visitors are Greek-speaking. Proposals should be drafted in English regardless whether performances will be in Turkish to allow for the evaluation committee to examine them thoroughly and objectively.


In submitting your proposal, bear in mind that the Children's stage in 2023 will be set up on a slightly raised platform (approximately 40 cm) of size 7 X 4 meters. A microphone system with the ability to use both wireless microphones and ear microphones will be provided. In case of use of musical instruments, the necessary wiring is provided after consultation with technicians and the organising committee while the musical instruments are the responsibility of the presenters.


Please also note that individuals or entities selected to present on the Children's Stage will be solely responsible for the sale of their books upon completion of their presentation. For this purpose, those selected should take care to secure copies of their edition, for the transfer of the books to the venue and their sale within the duration of their presentation.


We look forward to receiving your proposals and working with you to promote books and their creators in the consciousness of the reading public by offering quality actions with educational but at the same time entertaining content.
