Teaching together the past few years, we noticed a pattern: Everyone knows the power of a well-told story, but not everyone knows how or when to tell one.

We believe it’s easy to do with the right support. And we believe stories can strengthen communities, convey messages, and build businesses.

So we created StoryLab as the resource that pairs storytelling instruction (the nitty-gritty of how to tell a good story) with the tools to use the skill off-stage.

Whether it’s your startup, your classroom, or your knitting club, we want to help you tell your story.
