We are dedicated to preserving, practising and promoting the art of Storytelling.
The Guild is the brainchild of Elizabeth Miller, MBE, of Invercargill. A librarian by profession, Liz saw the potential of storytelling as a way of enriching the lives of children and adults throughout New Zealand.
It was her vision and hard work that brought about the existence of the NZ Guild of Storytellers. The promotion and development of storytelling in New Zealand has its foundation in strong Maori and Celtic oral traditions.
