“Thanks to all who made the 2014 Northlands Storytelling Network Conference a success. I left the conference feeling lit up about new story ideas, eager to apply things I have learned, thankful to have been able to contribute, and filled up-emotionally and creatively.” –Katie Knutson

“Storytelling is the live art of narrative performance,
dynamically shaped by audience response.”
