A Message from our President

Welcome to Stone Soup Storytelling in Woodruff, SC, the home of the Stone Soup Storytelling Festival, the official storytelling festival of South Carolina.

One of our top priorities is to preserve the intimate, small town feeling and atmosphere of the oral tradition of storytelling. The storytelling that occurred on your front porch on a Sunday afternoon, during your weekly trip to town on a Saturday morning or under the shade tree at the backyard picnic. A welcome place for everyone to come, share and listen.

We want Stone Soup Storytelling to be a place for you to come and to experience a little small town magic- spending time listening to the sound of a voice and making new friends.

Come listen and share your stories with us,
Karyn Page-Davies, President Stone Soup Storytelling Institute
