Sponsorship, Vendor & Advertising Opportunities

The National Storytelling Conference brings together National Storytelling Network (NSN) members from across the world, as well as individuals and organizations from the community, who are interested in the art and application of storytelling. Presenters offer material appealing to attendees’ variety of interests 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 classes, workshops and concerts presented, become vendors, or advertise at the annual conference. NSN’s 2020 National Storytelling Conference will be held in Atlanta, Georgia from July 23-26, 2020.

Help us ensure the success of the National Storytelling Conference by becoming a sponsor, vendor, or by advertising in the Conference Program!
