ABOUT WISCONSIN STORYTELLING

— Some professional tellers who offer live and/or online storytelling programs or workshops.
— The Wisconsin Storytelling Get-together (WISTGET) “an annual, informal gathering of state tellers actively engaged in the art and practice of storytelling for sharing stories, ideas & resources. It’s a chance for networking, mutual support and being re-energized for storytelling in whatever form we practice it.”
— Two annual Storytelling Festivals open to the general public (La Crosse & Whitewater)
— Professionally run Slams (ExFabula, Milwaukee)
— TELLABRATION produced annually in various communities over the years (Milwaukee, Monona, LaCrosse). An online version has been produced by the National Storytelling Network during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020 & 2021.
— Northlands Storytelling Network was founded in 1979 as a 5-state annual conference that for most of its history has been based in Wisconsin. The mission remains true to its founders: “Northlands inspires story artists to celebrate oral storytelling in all its diversity!” and Wisconsin has benefited by its presence.
— The National Storytelling Network has drawn many Wisconsin tellers to its conferences and membership over the years.
