About Storytellers Project:
At Storytellers Project, we help ​people tell true stories about who they are, what they do, and why it matters. ​Since 2016, at hundreds of shows with thousands of tellers, we connect people and brands to communities to drive change.

Storytellers Project is a nationwide series of live storytelling nights featuring neighbors and notables sharing true, first-person stories. What makes us unlike any other storytelling event is that USA TODAY Network journalists curate and coach the tellers to develop stories that fundamentally serve their communities.

We are dedicated to creating empathy across America. Des Moines Storytellers Project is produced from the newsroom of the Des Moines Register.
