The Stanford Storytelling Project is an arts program at Stanford University that explores how to use story craft and practices to create personal and social change.

Founded in 2008, we explore all forms of stories, from myth to memoir, in all kinds of media, from print to performance. We sponsor courses, workshops, grants, and a live event series that give students an opportunity to appreciate the way stories work, work on us, and can work for us. We also produce two podcasts that feature the research and creative work of the Stanford community: the award-winning State of the Human and our new fiction and poetry show, Off the Page.
