Do tell!

There is plenty of story to be had this Spring... Storytelling for families continues at Scandinavia House through May 12th. Thelma Thomas’ annual story salon devoted to all things risqué is on for March 25th, and there’s still time to reserve your place. A new home concert series, Come Over for Coffee, will kick off on April 29th in Jackson Heights, Queens (with performers to be announced). And make sure you’re at Provincetown Playhouse in Greenwich Village this April, for upcoming performances by Laura Simms (joined by celebrated griot Salieu Suso) and Portuguese storyteller Ana Sofia Paiva.

All the details await you in our Calendar, so please don’t hesitate to check them out.

Plus, we have received word of a new Peninnah Schram workshop focusing on Jewish storytelling, starting in mid–April at the Temple Emanu-el Streicker Center in Manhattan. There are further details on the Workshop page!

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 (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.
