Find a Storyteller

There are many storytellers across the country, but it can be difficult to find the ones who work in your area or work with the size and nature of your particular group.  The list below should help you.  It is not comprehensive and, as the directory is paid for by the tellers themselves, listing here does not mean the Society endorses any particular teller.

Whilst there is no national set rate for a storyteller, the National Association of Writers in Education recommends a minimum daily rate of £250 per day for authors in schools. Many experienced tellers will charge much more than this, and the rate of pay for storytelling in other sectors, such as healthcare or business, may be much higher.
