Parkhurst Brothers is an entrepreneurial book and media publisher with two primary passions (the oral storytelling movement and novels), with tangential passions in other areas. Among publishers today, our team has remarkable experience shaping and marketing materials conceived by storytellers—and material useful to anyone using stories in work, spiritual life, avocation, and fun.
The National Storytelling Network brings together and supports individuals and organizations that use the power of story in all its forms. We advocate for the preservation and growth of the art of storytelling.
The American storytelling revival was jump-started in Jonesborough, Tennessee, by the first National Storytelling Festival in 1973. The success of that first festival led to the founding of the National Association for the Preservation and Perpetuation of Storytelling (NAPPS), which changed its name to the National Storytelling Association (NSA) in 1994.
