About Us

Working Toward a Better Tomorrow

Here at Storyteller Foundation we see the value in everyone.

We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2020, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon - support, empowerment, and progress.


Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see by helping writers tell their stories and expand their impact from experiential retreat classrooms all around the world.

“Two years ago, I was a man getting off a Story Summit conference cruise with a dream. Today, I have a feature film newly optioned by the president of the Producers Guild, and I'm living my dream."

Jocelyn Jones, LA/NYC

"In 2020 I won a scholarship to write my memoir. Artist was published this year and hit number one on Amazon's best-seller list within days. Thank you, Storyteller Foundation!"

S.E. Driver, MI

“Everything changed for the better when my scholarship afforded me a trip to work intensely with my mentors. I have a family of support now that cheers me on every day.”


We Are Grateful to Be Working With the Best

Thank You
“I am deeply appreciative for the Debra Landwehr Engle Fellowship created through Storyteller Foundation. Diversity, equity and inclusion are a big part of the work I do as a counselor, and part of my personal life as a mother to a son with autism. In my writing, I continue those themes by creating roles for women, people over 40, and those with disabilities. I believe more roles like these need to exist, and receiving this award will foster that growth.”

Steffany Lohn Sommers, screenwriter, Rooms of Experience
