West Virginia Storytelling Guild
Enlightening Our World...
The West Virginia Storytelling Guild is made up of individuals that all have one thing in common- the love of storytelling. The members of the Guild are as different as the kinds of stories that they enjoy. The membership includes professional storytellers, as well as those just getting started, and even some very enthusiastic listeners.
The WV Storytelling Guild was formed so that storytellers across the state have a support group of fellow tellers. We are trying to promote storytelling across the state of WV, not only to introduce our state to the ancient art form that we so love, but also to promote our WV artisans to the people of our communities. The WV Guild assists in the production of the annual WV Storytelling Festival in Jackson's Mill every October.
Membership benefits include reduced ticket price for the WV Storytelling Festival, listing in the storytelling directory (sent to schools and libraries in WV), "How-To" workshops taught by experienced Guild members, and an opportunity to be tellers at Mini-concerts, held across the state.
Membership in the WV Storytelling Guild is (per year):
__$5 per student
__$15 per individual
__$20 per family
__$30 per organization
