Is your organization interested in holding a storytelling event?  Western Maine Storytelling and its associated tellers would be glad to assist you. Please complete the information below so that we know how best to work with you.

Normally our storytellers receive a fee and travel expenses for their performances. Some sponsors cover these expenses from their own budgets; others request donations from attendees; others submit mini-grant proposals to local or state organizations or businesses (we can help with these proposals). When we contact you to follow up on your request, we will discuss these arrangements with you.
