The Lititz Storytelling Festival is back!

It’s a bit out of the way, we know.... but we do want to mention that the Lititz Storytelling Festival is back for a sixth year and has a line-up you will certainly not want to miss: Dovie Thomason, Charlotte Blake Alston, Andy Offutt Irwin, Bill Harley (yes!) and Lyn Ford.

This year’s event will happen on October 20th and 21st inside Warwick Middle School in historic Lititz, Pennsylvania (which has been called one of ‘the coolest small towns in America,’ according to the festival’s producers).

There’s more about the Festival on their website, or you can beat the rush and book your tickets online now!

(N.B.: Ms. Alston is replacing Daniel Morden in the line-up due to unforeseen circumstances.)

We’re a–tweeting!

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.
