Fire and Light NSN Storytelling ConferenceThe National Storytelling Conference brings together National Storytelling Network (NSN) members, as well as individuals and organizations from the community, who are interested in the art and application of storytelling. Members and non-members present material appealing to attendees’ variety of interests and developmental needs.


Storytelling illuminates who we are as individuals and as a community.  Stories spark deeper understanding; they enlighten our minds and hearts.  Stories light the fire of joy and laughter.  Join us in the Valley of the Sun at the 2014 National Storytelling Conference for education and inspiration through the Fire & Light of story.
