The annual Yorklyn Story-Telling Festival is multimedia celebration of how stories enhance our lives. A series of workshops, open mics, storytelling concerts and ‘samplers’ in schools, libraries, and other venues across Delaware’s New Castle County, the festival encourages community members to express, to share, and to listen. 2019’s inaugural festival featured a lineup of world-renowned spoken-word storytellers, including the Delaware’s 17th Poets Laureate “The Twin Poets”, Al Mills and Nnamdi Chukwuocha. The event represents the opportunity to build an annual regional story-telling festival centered in Delaware.
