BFW16 Josef Bastian

Josef Bastian is Midwest author and poet whose sense of humor, depth of spirit and reflective imagination resonate within his poetry and prose. Josef currently has more than a dozen books in print that focus on the power of storytelling for people of all ages.

His current projects include the Nain Rouge Trilogy – A Crimson Three, that resurrects a 300-year folk legend from Detroit. Josef has also launched Folkteller Publishing, a storytelling company that targets regional folk tales and legends from around the world.

Folkteller’s goal is to create a new entertainment universe that lifts these global stories out of obscurity and into our culture, meant for a modern audience. This new genre combines literature, visual media and entertainment into a universe Bastian has dubbed “Cryptofolk” or “hidden stories.”
