The mission of this website is to encourage and share a broader understanding of storytelling and why it matters. The bureau also offers editorial services to organizations, companies and individuals based on this philosophy.

All of our website content is ethically sourced with the permission of its creators and may be circulated and reused with appropriate credit. We welcome contributors from all perspectives.

The site is both inclusive and accessible. Most of the stories include links to other sites and content as a value-added feature for visitors. Design and layout are optimized for people with vision loss through the use of larger point sizes, quick loading and high contrast settings. We intend to add audio and video content in the near future. 

Browse through our stories and blogs, share what you like and contact us if you want to discuss a project or assignment or how to contribute content to this website. We're here to help. And please come back often, we're always updating the site and adding new content.
