Mission Statement

The Seattle Storytellers Guild, founded in 1982, is a nonprofit organization of tellers and story enthusiasts who actively promote the art of storytelling for adults as well as children. The guild provides a forum for traditional storytelling, sponsors professional events, and provides performance and training opportunities for tellers at all levels. Our membership includes professional storytellers, writers, folklorists, traditional storytellers, oral historians, speakers, musicians, elders, ministers, health professionals, librarians, and teachers. We welcome storytellers of all levels and interests.

Description

For thousands of years, the role of the storyteller has been to educate, entertain, and enchant listeners, young and old. Storytelling celebrates the wisdom and diversity of human experience. Storytellers may use music, puppetry, and humor to engage their listeners. This most ancient of the human arts captures and heals the human heart. Storytelling is a powerful art form that includes folktales, myths, legends, tall tales, religious stories, and personal stories.
