About Us

Emerging Storyteller Award

Our Emerging Storyteller Scholarship was established in 2015. We offer four months’ mentoring for an emerging storyteller, by an accomplished teller, plus complimentary admission to our upcoming conference and one-year membership to SC-CC. To celebrate the award, the recipient/s are invited to perform at one of the conference events.


Emerging storytellers are chosen by storytelling guilds or groups in the region where the annual conference is held.


Due to the cancellation of our 2020 conference due to COVID19 virus, and  rescheduling in the same venue in 2021 the emerging storytellers on Vancouver Island have already been selected and there will be no competition for 2021.


If you have questions, suggestions or comments, please email the Project Officer Elaine O'Reilly: emergingstoryteller@
