Storytell, sponsored by the National Storytelling Network, is one of NSN’s forums of more than 900 subscribers worldwide for discussions about storytelling. All persons interested in storytelling are invited to participate: professional storytellers, amateur storytellers, people concerned with the rich history of storytelling, people who enjoy listening to stories, and those who speculate about the place of storytelling in the 21st century.
The group reflects viewpoints from around the world on issues and topics concerning the storytelling community. Storytell serves as a source of information on conferences, workshops, and events as well as a place to ask (and answer) questions about the origins and variations of stories, the business of storytelling, or organization of storytelling events. NSN reserves the right to include any posts deemed interesting or useful on one or more of NSN’s other forums. In instances where posts are shared on additional NSN forums, the author’s name and original post date will be included with the post verbiage.
