The Telling Room

The Telling Room is a nonprofit writing center in Portland, Maine, dedicated to the idea that children and young adults are natural storytellers.


Focused on young writers ages 6 to 18, they seek to build confidence, strengthen literacy skills, and provide real audiences for their students. The Telling Room believes that the power of creative expression can change our communities and prepare our youth for future success. Below you'll find stories from The Telling Room's programs with a focus on Casco Bay.
