The mission of the South Carolina Storytelling Network is to increase appreciation of story telling and listening, promote proficiency of the South Carolina Storytellers, and encourage interaction among its members by…

  • Creating a storytelling infrastructure

  • Publishing a current directory of South Carolina Storytellers and a newsletter with storytelling information for members and others.

  • Promoting opportunities for storytelling.

  • Promoting storytelling statewide as an art necessary for the preservation of our heritage.

  • Promoting gatherings of South Carolina storytellers and listeners.



The South Carolina Storytelling Network began in the fall of 2001 when a group met in an effort to form an organization dedicated to fostering storytelling across the state. From that meeting, the organization has grown to include storytellers and story listeners across South Carolina.
