The Southern Order of Storytellers provides opportunities for storytellers to tell their stories in small group settings or before large audiences, network with other storytellers and serve as stewards for the preservation and perpetuation of the art of storytelling.

The organization creates educational opportunities for adult and young storytellers and story listeners across Georgia through Festivals, partnership with libraries, organizations, adult homes and more.

The Southern Order of Storytellers was formed in 1983 by a group of individuals brought together by a storytelling class at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center who did not want the stories to end.
