The Storyteller Magazine's email has been compromised. Please send emails to Regina
Also, please keep in mind, our address has changed as well. The new address is:
The Storyteller Magazine
65 Hwy 328 West
Thank you, sorry for this inconvenience.
The Storyteller magazine has been going through a transitional stage these next few months. With the costs of printing and postage skyrocketing, we are no longer able to provide a “magazine sized” print version. It will be available through Amazon, B&N.com, Kindle, and Nook.
It will no longer be a magazine format style, but a book format instead. And our name will change from The Storyteller to The Storyteller Anthology Magazine. This way you will be able to purchase a print version from Amazon and Barnes and Noble each quarter.
We’ve been asked by so many of our contributors and subscribers not to let The Storyteller fall by the wayside and close down and we’re trying our best not to let that happen. There may be some good news along with this as well. Without the high printing and postage costs, we’re hoping we’ll be able to pay our writers in the near future. But we do ask that you get the word out about our changes and encourage your friends and family to purchase copies, either in print or online.
We are hoping we can keep the costs down enough by doing things this way that we will be able to keep the cost of the print and online version at $8.99 + shipping and handling per issue. At this time we aren't offering subscriptions. We hope to change that at a later date.
Calling for submissions for 2019!
Especially interested in fiction, although poetry and non-fiction accepted as well.
