Northeast Storytelling, through it's website, listserv, newsletter, and social media serves as a hub for storytelling events and information in the northeast. NEST also connects with related organizations for the shared purpose of expanding storytelling.
Northeast Storytelling hosts the longest running storytelling conference in the northeast. It attracts premier tellers from across the region and the country.

Volunteers are the soul of Northeast Storytelling.

Thank you to all of our volunteers!
