About Me

I was awarded a full scholarship to attend the very first in person Story Summit event. My scholarship was sponsored by Tito's Vodka and I can't thank the people there or the team at Story Summit enough. The experience has been life changing and enriched my family's life immensely. This community is simply amazing. Without the help of the scholarship I may never have been able to participate in this way. It's time to help pay it forward and guarantee that other writers of merit have the same opportunity to be mentored by the likes of Jeff Arch and Tab Murphy and more! We are raising money for the Rainbow Fund. Last year we raised money for women writers surviving cancer. This year, the fund is for writers of diversity - BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and writers with disability. We are creating scholarships for winners to attend first for Her Spirit Santa Fe 2022, online opportunities, or elsewhere as events become available in between now and our scholarship season ends in 2023. These are need based scholarships within the rainbow prism of creating a more diverse reflection of a healthy and harmonious world. To be clear, some scholarships are for Romancing the Muse and these will be decided by the selection committee. Please consider supporting the cause. You are also welcome to join a team and become an active participant in both the walk, raising fund and the free programs offered by Story Summit created to support this year's Walk for Story.

More Info

Story Moves Us benefits The Rainbow Fund by building scholarship resources supporting Diversity and Writers with Disabilities.

Since its inception in 2020, the Storyteller Foundation has provided scholarships to over one hundred emerging writers. The foundation supports voices that encourage, uplift, and educate, creating a more unified and sustainable world. 

In the past two years, the foundation has provided specific help for writers who are working mothers, and writers who are cancer survivors.

Our 2022-2023 scholarship program provides mentorships to emerging writers in the BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and disabled sectors. Mentorship occurs online, in person, and through onsite retreats.
