The Story People of Clallam County is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, organized as a Guild in 1992 to promote the art of storytelling on the Olympic Peninsula. The Story People believe that stories are an invaluable treasure of every culture because they represent and pass along the collective folklore and wisdom of the ages. The Guild sponsors a monthly story swap in the Raymond Carver Room at the Port Angeles Library. All attendees, local residents as well as visitors, are welcome to share a story, poem, or even a song just for the fun of it, or to improve storytelling techniques. Many people come only to listen, and they represent a very important aspect of this event that is open to the general public and offered at no cost. For those interested in further development as tellers, the Guild offers periodic workshops that are led by experienced professional tellers. Members volunteer regularly in area schools, promoting literacy through storytelling.
