 Storyteller Foundation

Writing a Brighter Future


A Bit of Background

Since its inception in 2020, the Storyteller Foundation has provided scholarships to over one hundred emerging writers. The foundation supports voices that encourage, uplift, and educate, creating a more unified and sustainable world. 


In the past two years, the foundation has provided specific help for writers who are working mothers, writers who are cancer survivors, and more.


Our 2022-2023 scholarship program provides mentorships to writers in the BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and disabled communities. Mentorship occurs online, in person, and through onsite retreats.
