Happy Holidays to All!

As we come to the end of 2017, we at the Storytelling Center want to wish all our Members and friends the very best for the holidays. You — all of you! — are the reason why this year offered such a memorable bounty of storytelling. It would never have happened without you.

A special heads–up from Terri Mateer

This Saturday, December 16th, Terri Mateer will be bringing her one–woman show A Kind Shot to Woodstock’s Mountain View Studio (20 Mountain View Road), with performances at 3:00 and 7:00 p.m. For those waiting for Ms. Mateer to return to New York City, you won’t have long to wait: A Kind Shot will be doing a special run at TBG Studio Theatre from January 6th through February 25th, 2018! You can learn more (and secure tickets) at Terri Mateer’s website.


We want to let everyone know that there may be a temporary outage of this very website just before or after Christmas. It won’t be a prolonged one — we are simply making the move to WordPress, which will mean, among other things, that we will be able to to update our website on a more timely basis.

You will still be able to send Daniel Meyer your latest performance and event dates even after the website makeover. He can be reached, as always, at nycstorytelling@gmail.com. (Be sure to follow us on Twitter, too!)

And with that, we thank each and every one for making 2017 a memorable one for storytelling. May all your fondest wishes come true in the New Year.

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.
