Thank you for visiting the North Carolina Storytelling Guild. We appreciate your interest in storytelling and your desire to learn more about the world of storytelling. The Guild is comprised of folks just like you, as well as storytellers, story listeners, and supporters of this fascinating genre.

Guild members believe that stories can bring us closer to the truth about ourselves, about life and about living, as well as help us define our purpose here on earth. Stories connect us to others, and allow us to experience and share joys, sorrows, and new horizons.

Using the art of oral storytelling, we preserve the ancient tradition of passing down and sharing our stories with others. Flights of fantasy, our stories growing up, and our elders’ stories are all part of the wonderful, awe inspiring, thoughtful world of storytelling.

The Guild is focused on serving the storytelling community - storytellers and audiences alike by providing storytelling events, continuing education opportunities, and advocacy for the art of oral tradition. The Guild currently sponsors an annual Storytelling Festival, a Winter Workshop and a Spring Retreat. As you peruse our site, be sure to visit our Storyteller Directory to learn more about the great people who call the North Carolina Storytelling Guild home.
