Founded in 1997, we are a community-based nonprofit and membership organization serving storytellers and listeners across New Mexico.


Our Mission

Storytellers of New Mexico promotes, supports, and encourages the history, art, and practice of storytelling.  


Storytellers of New Mexico is committed to providing a non-discriminatory and welcoming environment for participants at its events. STNM provides guidelines to tellers, but does not dictate story choices. We are committed to cultivating an inclusive storytelling experience for all.


STNM produces original storytelling programming across the state, including educational workshops and story crafting sessions, monthly personal and traditional storytelling shows, and participation in two annual global storytelling showcases.
