News Flash!

We have only now just learned that Laura Simms will be the guest teller at a New York Mythology Meetup this Sunday, June 24th (3:00 to 5:00 p.m.) at Stone Creek Bar and Lounge (140 East 27th Street in Manhattan). Laura will be telling (as per her latest e–mailing) 'three fragments of myths and engage us in a rich conversation about how myth is not only personal story, but how it restores our innate capacity for knowing our connection to natural intelligence, active compassion and inner confidence grounded in joy.'

There is still time to reserve your place at this gathering — but do it soon! (Meetup registration required).
Remember that you can always send Daniel Meyer your latest performance and event dates for inclusion on our Calendar page; you can reach him at nycstorytelling@gmail.com. (Be sure to follow us on Twitter, too!)



Our Mission

The Storytelling Center is an organization devoted to promoting excellence in storytelling, to increasing public awareness of storytelling as an art form, and to providing opportunities for all people who are interested in storytelling — opportunities to share resources, learn skills, meet storytellers, and explore stories of enduring meaning.

In pursuit of these goals, it engages in a range of activities including but not limited to:

• workshops on the various aspects of the art of storytelling;
• online networking (including our website);
• meetings at which members can tell stories and hear other tellers; and
• special projects such as storytelling festivals, study and research projects, concerts by master storytellers, or any similar project that the Board feels relates to its statement of purpose.
