National Storytelling Network

National Storytelling Network
The National Storytelling Network is dedicated to advancing the art of storytelling – as a performing art, a process of cultural transformation, and more. Storytelling illuminates who we are as individuals and as a community. Stories spark deeper understanding; they enlighten our minds and hearts. Stories light the fire of joy and laughter. Join us in the Valley of the Sun at the 2014 National Storytelling Conference for education and inspiration through the Fire & Light of story. Sponsors

storytell - Discussions on the art of storytelling - info Storytell, sponsored by the National Storytelling Network, is a forum of more than 500 subscribers worldwide for discussion about storytelling. All persons interested in storytelling are invited to participate. The group reflects viewpoints from around the world of issues and topics concerning the storytelling community. Storytell serves as a source of information on conferences, workshops and events as well as a place to ask (and answer) questions about the origins and variations of stories, the business of storytelling, or organization of storytelling events. International Storytelling Center The power of storytelling is unquestionable. We are all storytellers and we live our lives through a network of stories. The cornerstone of the International Storytelling Center is a belief in a single, immutable principle of life—storytelling.

National Storytelling Network To further its mission of “bringing together and nurturing individuals and organizations that use the power of storytelling in all its forms,” the National Storytelling Network supports a Member Grants Program through which NSN individual, associate, and affiliate members may apply for funding up to $1,000 to develop new projects. Support is available for the development of individual work, for collaborative projects, for community-based storytelling programs, or for scholarly research. In extending direct support to members through this program, the NSN Board of Directors has several goals. Though the grants available are not large, we hope that they will both enable storytellers to develop new ideas they might not otherwise have time or funds for and increase public outreach and awareness of the power of storytelling. In all grant proposals, we encourage innovative and experimental thinking.

The lost art of handwriting Do you remember learning to write? The first scratch of an HB pencil across the fresh page of a new notebook. Repeating endless cursive letters along wide-spaced, pale blue lines. Looping the tail of a "g", flicking the line up from the end of an "m", arcing it over an "a" or an "o". I loved writing so much during my childhood years that I constantly reinvented my script, dotting my "i"s with little hearts, or switching between a round "a" and one with a little arm above the circle. I filled endless diary pages, sent snail mail to several pen pals, even invented secret symbols to ensure notes passed in the classroom were indecipherable by enemy eyes.
