Goals:
  • To increase awareness of and appreciation for storytelling as an art form in a variety of settings: entertainment venues, educational institutions, heath care facilities, community organizations, non-profit organizations and for profit businesses.
  • To provide opportunities for participation in storytelling for all children and adults, from beginners to professionals, through classes, workshops, story swaps, concerts and storytelling festivals.
  • To encourage the use of storytelling to bring together diverse populations in the community and promote cross-cultural understanding.
  • To serve as a source of information on the art of storytelling and storytelling events in the San Diego area.

The Storytellers of San Diego has functioned as a loosely-knit storytelling community since 1981. Many of our tellers have been here since then bringing story programs to the San Diego community. We welcome all newcomers. Contact Marilyn McPhie for more information on the organization.
