Conference Sponsorship, Vendor & Advertising Opportunities

Whether online or in-person, the National Storytelling Network (NSN) brings together storytellers, teachers, business professionals, librarians, producers, teaching artists, musicians, public speakers, community organizers, and health professionals from around the world. When we meet in person, we also draw individuals and organizations from the local community who are interested in the art and application of storytelling. Presenters offer material appealing to attendees’ various interests, professions, and developmental needs.

An important contribution to the quality of our conference is made by foundations, corporations, businesses, organizations, and individuals who provide funds to underwrite the workshops and performances presented, become vendors, or advertise their goods or services.

With the rise of COVID-19, NSN needs your support now more than ever. We are continuing to provide meaningful content to our members, which provides a global audience for your organization or brand.

Help us ensure the success of the National Storytelling Network by becoming a sponsor, vendor, or advertising partner!
