Our Mission:

Strengthen Storytelling by promoting and teaching the art of story among young tellers

What’s happening in 2024

Get ready for an exciting adventure like no other. This year, our storytellers are in for an unforgettable experience. With some amazing updates in store, we’re thrilled to bring you even more moments of inspiration, connection, and growth.

Storytellers will participate in two Showcases, learn about the art of storytelling, participate in public humanities discussions, and record their stories with The Apple Seed radio and podcast. Storytellers will attend studio recordings for adult tellers Donald Davis and Diane Ferlatte. Tour local sites and eat yummy food from some of our sponsors. Share some bonding time at the Museum of Natural Curiosity. All before sharing their stories at Timpanogos Storytelling Festival.

Join us in person or jump on virtually for one of our Facebook Live Showcase events. Please help us thank our sponsors.
