Welcome Storytellers and Story Listeners!

Everyone loves a good story and The St. John’s Storytelling Festival is making sure that there’s always someone ready to tell one. We host a monthly storytelling circle, a yearly festival, plus workshops to keep local tellers in top form and give local listeners lots of chances to hear great tales.


Dear Storytellers and Story Listeners,

These are frightening and challenging times globally and we need each other more than ever. While we cannot meet socially, enjoy a cup of tea, a play, a movie, or a dance together, we can still share stories. Stories have brought us together and nourished us for thousands of years. They remind us of our shared humanity, help us process grief, find connection and celebrate magnificence. They carry us away into enchanted lands, into the future and the past. Stories are as resilient as the people who carry them.

That is why we are working hard to find the best way to bring stories to you, wherever you may be. The St. John’s Storytelling Festival is committed to finding ways to support our tellers and finding the best platforms for delivering their tales to you. In the meantime, we encourage you to adventure in your minds eye while you cannot adventure through the world. Read your favourite books – read them aloud to one another; write poetry, prose, stories; practice them and share them with each other – and eventually, with us all.

We will be providing updates on our plans for sharing stories digitally as they develop. Please check our website, facebook, twitter, or Instagram for news, or sign up for our e-newsletter. We’ll also be sharing digital tales from folks here at home and other parts of the country and world as they become available. Found a great link? Send it to us at storytellingstjohns@gmail.com so that we can share it with our followers!

Take care, and keep telling stories.
